1. I did my portrait piece of myself. I chose myself because I wanted to challenge my self by doing a self portrait and using food for my medium.
2. I used skittles for my medium because I was inspired by the portrait made of skittles Mrs.Sudkamp showed us.
3. First I traced my picture onto the cardboard and then I used a app to figure out what colors to put where based on the shadows and highlights. After that I used markers to color it so I knew where to put the skittles. Then I started to glue the skittles and then I put a background behind it to make it pop more.
4. I find the colors and the result successful because you can tell what it is and the colors make it look more realistic. I would change my medium or put it on a smaller peice because it took a long time to complete and people kept eating it which messed up how much I needed.
