Overall, I’m happy with the outcome. Although this project was very time consuming and took me hours of tedious work, I think the final result came out great. It’s still not as precise as I’d like it to be, however, I didn’t know I was capable of producing a piece such as this one. This project helped me discover a new skill of mine that I never even knew I had in me.

this part was the most difficult of the project for me. It was easy at first but eventually having to draw and paint my pieces into paper I found very hard.

I Felt this project had some good and bad moments for me. I enjoyed the process and learning about values and tones. However I found painting and drawing myself especially hard. I tried my best and this was the final result. I am proud of my work and I felt that I understood the project well.

This is the final version of my project which is a GIF. I love how everything turned out. Overall my project was a success even though there were some difficulties in between. It has definitely been a while since I’ve last painted. I haven’t painted in a very long time ever since kindergarten. Something I could have done better was painting my self-portrait a little better. I don’t like seeing how my self painted portrait has like different individual shades.

Overall this project was a challenge, I honestly thought it would’ve been really easy but there was a few turns throughout the process, what I learned other than the different values was patience what I could have done better was add more value on my face. There was other layers I didn’t do because I didn’t want to mess the painting up . For next project I would take a lot of time into consideration , time management . Some of the strategies I used was mixing the colors and painting it on my printed copy to try and match the color as close as possible .

Here is the primary picture of me that I used to do the posterize part and then trace on to the tracing paper, where we then moved on to the Bristol. Afterwards, painted in the different types of tone we had on our posterize to get our final posterized painting.

This is how the posterized painting looks like at the end after some steps that I went through.

The project itself was hard to start with because even though we had to follow steps to get to the end there was some struggle to see what worked and what didn’t. The one thing from this project that I can definitely say was the very hardest part was to really make sure some of the tones we created with the paint match almost exactly. And lastly to play around and create an animated gif as our finally result.

While doing this project, I found it interesting how you can convey a certain mood using lightning and only black and white. Something I could have done better was testing the paint before putting it on bristol since it was my first time using this kind of paint. I enjoyed making and seeing the transformation of my portrait, I was already familiar with the process of Key Frames and Inbetweens. While creating the gif, I felt as I was in my element and helped some of my classmates with their transformations.

Something I learned form this project is that when I claim that I can’t do something I can do it even better than I imagined. Something I could have done better is take my time to include more details but it still came out pretty good. Based off what I learned from this project one thing I would like to take with me to my next project is patience. If you are behind or don’t understand what you are doing, stop take a breathe and start again.
