Skull With Tracing Paper

I tried to make this look as realistic as possible, I love drawing people so I tried to make this project of mine stand out. This assignment came with pretty simple instructions, so I just did as I was told when drawing this.
No challenges really occurred, I feel like I handled this assignment pretty well. I did not make noticeable mistakes with this assignment,but I did struggle a bit. It was hard to line up my face exactly with a skull, sometimes I felt like my face did not line up.

Skeleton Drawing

For this assignment I just did as I was told, I did not add anything to make it unique. I learned how to put together the human figure without any skin or muscle, it was challenging. I just drew what I saw. I gained skill in drawing from life and drawing the skeleton of a human. I was not sure how I would do drawing this, but it didn't turn out too bad. I am used to drawing from life but this was a challenge, drawing from life seemed like the easiest way to approach this.

Final Self Portrait

The Final Self Portrait drawing project was all about getting the hang of the composure and the proportions of the face (your face). My class was required to draw a self portrait of ourselves from a selfie we took, and incorporate a little bit of character into it to show our true selves.
In this Project I used Prisma Color pencils and chalk pastels. I used this media to show vibrant color and smoothness, also to blend easily.
In this project I tried to incorporate something that would show my personality and show that it was me. I added fairy characteristics since I love magic and fantasy. My inspiration was fantasy and even a bit of nature, it made my idea unique and pretty. I practiced more with Prisma Colors and it turned out really good. I really improved with this material. During the process of making this project I asked my friends for feed back, most of them just told me it looked great already, some gave me constructive criticism.
