Self Portrait – Assignment 1

For this assignment , I decided to use a reference photo of myself because I wanted to focus on recreating general shapes in p5.js , instead of worrying about design aspects. By doing this, I ended up with an actually pretty detailed version of my picture. While I initially wanted to make the hair gradient to match the picture, I ran into some technical trouble. Instead, I decided to challenge myself by figuring out coordinates for creating lines for things in my code such as “armlines” and “necklace”. Eventually, I did end up using a coordinate finder which really helped familiarize me with how the canvas is setup.
