CONGRATULATIONS

If you have got this far it either means that you:

  1. Found this page by mistake
  2. Cheated and skipped a few sections
  3. Have completed all of the units and have created your portrait

II am hoping you are here because you have completed all of the units and now have your finished portrait. If you do have you thought about what you will do with it? have you also thought about what you are going to do next?

As the portrait you have created only tackles a part of the work that you did during UNIT ONE and UNIT TWO I would urge you to go on to working through the rest of the information that you wrote down. You can either keep with the same emotion or feeling to create a set or work through the rest of the items that you wrote down.

There is also the subject of what you want to do with your portrait. It would be a waste to let it just sit on your computer. It may be time to think about creating something to hang on your wall or sharing your image so that it can help others recognise what they are going through.

 

Look how far you have come... then keep going.

CONTINUING WITH YOUR PROJECT

If you have decided that you would like to continue with your A PORTRAIT OF MYSELF project the best thing is that you have already done the hard part. The information that you gained during UNIT ONE and UNIT TWO is already done so you can jump straight at scripting your next portrait. You may even decide that you already have the image for you next portrait already (see there was another advantage to all that experimenting).

To help you generate a theme for your portraits there are a couple of things that you could do to help.

USE THE SAME EMOTION OR FEELING

If like me you wrote down a few different feelings for each emotion then continue to work off of the same one. The result from doing this will be that you have a flow to your images in a way that describe the different ways that one emotion can make you feel.

KEEP THE SAME SCRIPTING

Whether you decide to stick with the same emotion or go onto another one, using the same scripting will allow your images to continue to look and feel the same. 

The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.

SHOW OFF YOUR WORK

I am always one for saying that images should be shared. It is sad when I hear of all the people who have images tucked away on computers and phones, that after a while will never be seen again. There is also the chance that a computer or mobile phone could be damaged or lost, along with those precious photographs.

Sharing or printing your work has some great benefits as well. There are so many ways that it could be done as well depending on what you would like to get from your A PORTRAIT OF MYSELF project.

SHARE YOUR IMAGES

Sharing your images with friends or family is a great way of expressing how you are feeling, without needing to open up the conversation. Your portrait will give you that opening and allow you to discuss things through more openly.

You may also want to shar your images in social media groups to help others or to get some feedback on your portraits to help you improve.

If you are feeling really brave you could send your portrait to me so that it can be added to the website.

Your name an email will not be used on the website. It is just in case I need to get back to you about your portrait.

Print YOUR PORTRAIT

Printing your portraits off is a great thing to do. Frame them and hang them on your wall. They make excellent, unique, pieces of art for your walls and will give you a sense of achievement. Looking at your images on the wall will also remind you that you can take advantage of the emotions tat you face. That you can control them, rather than having them control you.

We all need people who give us feedback. That's how we improve.

TELL ME HOW YOU GOT ON

I hope that you enjoyed this project.

I am always looking for ways to improve on things so please do give your feedback to let me know how you got on. Which parts did you enjoy and which did you struggle with? What parts work well and which could be improved.

Any information that you give will help me to update the project so more people can enjoy creating their portraits.

Your name an email will not be used on the website. It is just in case I need to get back to you about your portrait.
