For the project of portraits, I decided to do myself so I could hang it up in my room. When I was thinking of materials to use, I had a lot of ideas. However, I chose the Sunday comics because I read them every Sunday. I could get a lot of different tones and colors. The choice of comics gave my overall portrait a childish/abstract look. Also, the comic people faces gave my face color. It was important to have the different tones because it gives my face depth and character. I faced some challenges during the project. It took a long time, and an overall of three Sunday comics combined to get everything I needed for the portrait. Finding and cutting out all the tiny faces to go around the eyes was also a challenge I faced. A risk I took was adding all the speech bubbles in the background. It was a last minute idea, and I went for it, and I think it turned out pretty successful. I think my choices created a comical and overall fun portrait. The materials have a connection with me since every Sunday, I read the Sunday comics and it's interesting to see some of my favorite comic characters on the portrait. I feel my portrait was successful.
