- To demonstrate understanding of the structure for each feature: eyes, nose, & mouth;
- To practice using black & white charcoal to render a drawing, using brown paper as the middle value
When drawing my mouth, it felt fairly straightforward, and I like how it turned out. The creases in my lips, and the darker corners as well as the darker middle part (where my lips part) contributed to the successful feeling for my mouth. I think I captured the shape of my lips accurately. One thing I need to keep in mind while drawing my full self portrait, is drawing my feautures exactly and porportionatly, not how I WANT them to look. Drawing my eye felt successfull as well, though I think the corner looks a little too sharp. The parts I really like about my eye is the light in the pupil as well as the highlight around my iris. I think it will take a lot of looking closly in my full portrait to accurately capture my eye shape and not just an eye shape. My nose I think was the least succesful, though I do like the way my nostrils look in the sketch. I need to work on keeping it large and accurately depicting the width of the bridge.
