Transcript of Selfie
Artists have painted, drawn, photographed and sculpted self-portraits for centuries. Although self-portraits have been made by artists since the earliest times, it is not until the Early Renaissance in the mid-15th century that artists can be frequently identified as either the main subject or as an important character in their work.
Like most works of art, self-portraits were originally studies of the subject. The artist looked closely at color, light, textures, and values to create a realistic picture. As time went on, symbolism and mood added meaning to the work, to tell you something about the subject instead of showing the skill of the artist.
With photography, self-portraits have become increasingly common as technology is easier to use and more widely available. The modern self-portrait is, of course, the "selfie" photo. It's a way of showing personality, mood, and personal style.
For your drawing project, you can use your phone or tablet to take a selfie to use for your self-portrait.
A successful drawing will include:
something in the picture that tells us about yourself, like props, facial expression, etc.
good facial proportions - everything lines up and is the right size
a range of light and dark values to make your drawing look 3D (convert the image to greyscale)
fill the page - consider the background.
