In my portrait I was trying to portray that I am a student and I work very hard in school due to the many pencils and pens shown. Also, I wanted to make the face look very similar to my own face. The composition shows a trapped feeling through showing only the hand and pencil case as out of the mirror while having my face in the mirror. I chose to include my pencil case to show that I am a student. The lighting that I chose was slightly to the side of my face. This created interesting shadows on my hand and face. The background in the picture is the cieling of the artroom where I was drawing. THis also symbolizes school adn the fact that I am a student. I had many difficulties while working with this portrait. I really struggled with my face and getting it to resemble me.
