2.To find the different values in the portrait, I used a value chart to help me determine how dark to shade each shape in the portrait. I also looked at the portrait and tried to find the darkest and the lightest. I then looked for the ones in between.
3.I think I used a full range of values because I have many different shades. If you look at the right side of the picture you can see his shirt there is very dark. However, his eye on the left side is very white with almost no shading.
4.I think that this was not executed very neatly because it was extremely difficult and frustrating to trace the portrait onto the tracing paper. Also, I feel like my different values in the portrait are not blended very well together, even though I used a blending tool. All in all, I feel like this was not my best project.
5. There were many obstacles in this drawing. I would have to say the hardest one to overcome was, as I previously said, tracing the picure with the tracing paper. I could hardly see anything on the darker side. To overcome this, I held it up to the light and tried to make out the shapes, but it was still difficult.
