21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Audrey Hepburn Portrait on: February 06, 2008 06:12:12 AM
I think it's nice. well rendered. but I'm going to give you some unsolicited feedback. I'm a college admissions counselor for a small fine arts school, part of my job is critiquing high-school portfolios (about 200 a year) out of those 200 portfolios, I see about 10 to 20 Audrey Hepburn portraits all of this same image. This might be part of the reason your art teacher wasn't so happy with it, she probably wants you to be pushing yourself artistically and thinking out of the box. maybe you could use her as inspiration for a more original work? I'm not trying to bum you out or piss you off (so please don't be angry), just trying to give some perspective. Take the idea of Audrey (gamine, classic, demure, ladylike, etc...) and expand upon it, think about why you are drawn to her, what feelings do you get when you think of her... and make something fantastic and never seen before!!!
My teacher gave me the image, the assignment was to redraw it on a much larger scale.
Thank you for the critique though Smiley

huh. well then I don't know what your teachers problem is, because it seems you've done the assignment. HS art teachers can be like that though. don't let it bum you out, keep working and keep having fun with your art

ALSO: since your hair is wavy/curly invest in a difusser to attach to your blowdryer. ask your stylist how to use it if you don't already know.

ALSO ALSO: Paul Mitchell Sculpting Foam...put it in when your hair is wet and curl your ahem...curls around your finger beginning at the roots

good luck!

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. work  a dime sized amount into damp hair staying away from the roots (focus mostly on the bulk), section off and blowdry using a paddle brush. all of the 'Super Skinny" line reduces frizz and plays down "poofyness" the shampoo/cond is nice too the line also makes your hair dry faster so blowdrying isn't as huge of a pain in the ass. Invest in a good quality flat iron (chi, ghd, or fhi) and some heat protect spray. and if you dye your hair, go to a professional stylist. also S factor smoothing creme is WONDERFUL but a little on the pricey side.

professional products can be expensive but it's worth the quality. (the super skinny serum lasts FOREVER!)
also don't wash your hair everyday, its bad for it and will dry it out!
