Face Mask / Drawing

Mask1 2014-09-30 23.37.09

As a project, we had to construct a face mask. Through observation, we had to draw the face mask as accurate as possible with appropriate shading.

Why do you think you drew the mask instead of looking in the mirror and drawing your face?

There’s many possible reasons of why we drew a mask rather than looking in the mirror and drawing our face. I think the main reason for this is because, with a mask, there’s more details that can be achieved rather than just simply staring in the mirror. Also, designing our own masks improves our craftsmanship.

What do you need to improve?

I think I need to improve on the shape and size aspect. The shape I try to go for never comes out the way intended. For example, the shape of the mask I drew is clearly a little different from the shape of the mask I constructed. Size wise, I feel the mask drawing could’ve been larger. I have difficulties in drawing big. However, I am working on it.

What is the strong points of your drawing?

I think I did well on the shading aspects of the drawing. I paid a lot of attention to that since it played such a crucial role. Using charcoal and the cloth found in the art kit, I added the shaded areas to the drawing, attempting to make it as accurate as possible. I think I achieved that.

I think the purpose of this project was clear, as it is the same as the purpose for every project given in this course; To improve our artistic skills. I think this project helped me grow artistically. Not only did it improve my craftsmanship, but it improved my shading.


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
