Self Portrait Assignment 1 – Hind Younus


At first I wanted to go for something more abstract, but also felt like that doesn’t represent me. So I went for some realism for my portrait. I tried to use all the tools we learnt in class to help me construct my form and face. In addition, I added things I am passionate about and like. In my left hand I put a cute duck because I love anything to do with birds, and the right a dumbbell as I really love going to the gym and doing calisthenics. The background I made my favourite color purple.

Overall, I think next time I would try to experiment with more abstract shapes as I could have branched out more in that direction, but in the end I am happy with how this portrait turned out.
