Self Portrait No. ---
With this piece, I learned a lot about how to manipulate colors to create a mood. It can't get too "weird" even with a strange color scheme because it ends up not looking like what you want it to portray. The surreal style I am going for must have an element of realism, it must look like it could feasibly exist even though it does not currently.
After the first "done" stage I was challenged to look more closely at the lines and textures of edges, and not creating necessarily a uniform edge, but to manipulate it to tell the story I want.
I really had to look deeply at line in this piece as well, what the composition was saying and where it was leading the eye. I had to make some major and minor changes to bring attention to the correct focal points.
