My artwork uses the majority of the composition, although the outsides are blank because obviously there is a background behind my head and face. All 9 shades were used in the making of my portrait, so there is a broad value scale. I did not outline any features, I just created the shapes I saw with the colors i had. The final design was executed in a professional manner. Everything was done and cut the correct way, according to the directions. I did my very best to paint each value with a smooth and even coat, so all pieces from the same value would look exactly the same. I glued everything carefully and removed all the extra glue and smudging. I handled this project with the best care I possibly could, even though I wanted to rip it apart the entire time.
