The presentation of my design occupies the whole area of the composition. The composition contains all nine values from my value scale. My design has broad range of value that reflect the photograph of myself. Yes, I cut all of the strips of value into uneven shapes that breaks each value into a flat plane. I created a 1/2” proper grid, which utilized the location of the correct placement of all shapes and values. I tried to avoid outlining facial features to the best of my ability. My design turned out successful because it engages the audience and it encourages them to explore the design. The craftsmanship of my design has been executed in a professional manner.
