Good Morning! Complete the following steps to upload your portraits to your blog: https://rooseveltgraphicarts.wordpress.com/your-blog/vector-self-portrait-post/
When you finish, you may begin/continue to work on an independent project or a tutorial of your choice. Tomorrow we begin our new project: Emoji Design.
Wednesday will be our last day working on our Vector portraits. You might have a final version and a creative version or just one final image with your creative elements. Include many details – shadows and highlights – and do your best craftsmanship – smooth lines and no unwanted spaces. Take a look at the examples below for creative elements you could incorporate into your portrait: missing “pieces”, doodles, incorporating chosen objects (butterfly, hot air balloon, stars, etc.), obstructed portrait (blurring, crossing out, doodling over, object in front of face, etc.), patterns, etc.).
If you are finished, you can create another creative version of your portrait, work on an independent project in Illustrator, or complete an Illustrator tutorial of your choice.
