Nature Boy

Nature Boy

1. Who did you choose to do a portrait of? Why did you choose that person? 
Myself, because i though it would be easier to make myself rather then anyone else, plus i can always look at myself.

2. When brainstorming about this project how did you decide what would be the best materials to use to create it? Explain how your material choice impacted the look of your piece. Why was this so important. Explain.
At first, i was going to use pennies. then i forgot to bring them, and there wasn't time to do nothing, so i got some leaves and rocks and stuff from outside. there was no way to show minor details through leaves i could think of, so it made it a little more basic. it was important from the fact that it ended up working in my opinion. i though it looked nice, maybe not my favorite thing to have done, i don't like drawing/making people, but for what its worth, it ended up well enough for me at the very least.

3. Describe the risks you took or that were involved in creating the project. What were the challenges you faced?
the risk of just doing a face was very risky for me, i'm not the best at drawing/making people. also, i had used leaves, which i knew would die and cause problems possibly... kind of why i am doing this so late. also the hot glue gun, i burned myself a few times on that, but i learned to block out the sting after a while, but at first, i was worrying about it way to much.

4. How did your choices impact the look and feel of the piece? Did your choice of materials have any connection with the person you chose to represent? 
i made a few choices, using different colored leaves, using rocks for eyes lips and nose, pines for hair, all sorts of stuff i had chosen. with me, using nature was nice, it sorta Represented part of my peaceful nature, i don't want my friends to fight all the time, and i try to make peace happen when bad things happen, so that is a part of me, i guess.
