The assignment for this project was to take 20 professional-looking photographs of an actual human subject. I decided this was a great opportunity to take some beautiful fall pictures of my little sisters, Charlotte, Claire and Daphne. It was so much fun, and the assignment made me fall in love with photography. I love the way the DSLR camera captured all the beautiful details of their faces. I would love to experiment further with photography after this project.
The assignment for this project was to create a digital painting using Illustrator. I decided to go with a self portrait that exemplified the side of me that most people don’t see, which is that I’m Native American. I wanted to create something that shows what I would traditionally look like, had history not been altered by the arrival of Europeans to America. I really love this piece and I think it gives a great insight as to who I am as an artist and a person.
