Final Self Portrait

For my final portrait for Figure Drawing I choose to draw inspiration from the very talented Chuck Close. Close has his own unique and defined style that is recognizable to most when it is seen. The attention to value and contrast Close uses in his pieces are incredible, I tried to do the same with in my self-portrait. Even though this project took a lot of time to complete I really enjoyed working in this style. Doing one square at a time really gets you thinking about what color or value should go where. While working on trying to get the proper blend when you step back you have to take the time and place all of the highlights and shadow in there correct place.
