My self portrait
This image is created by many images that I have of myself in the background with the one large close up covering the majority of the piece. I used a large variety of images throughtout my life to give the viewers a feel for who I am. Part of the assignment was to divide the overall image into nine sections, and to create one overall united image with each of those individual ones. I chose to change the texture of the larger image of myself as it crossed into the new sections. However, for the background I left the textures natural, and instead chose to change the colors. Many areas of the piece have very saturated colors, which I think fits with the chaotic pattern of the background images. Overall, I believe that this digital piece shows pretty well who I am - mainly because of all the pictures that I incorporated throughout the background.
