I chose to create portraits as my AHS capstone because I find drawing humans extremely interesting; not only are bodies fascinating and incredible machines, humans also have very distinct personalities. I wanted to explore drawing people that I see every day and using my art as a way to portray some aspect of their personality. I was interested in trying to depict personality because it is something that I see every day, but that the average viewer of a portrait might not necessarily see. I explored multiple ways of doing this and eventually decided on using both composition and medium/approach to show personality.
