I really like how I chose to depict this topic. I knew I wanted to play around with the idea of hands pulling at facial features that are vital to physically expressing our emotions. However, I ran into a problem when I realized the hands were too clunky and covered up too much of the face, which is the focal point. I then had the idea of having the hands hold hooks that could be punctured through the skin and pulled to symbolize forcing of emotions. I liked this idea even more because anytime i can add a splash of blood i am all over it. I like the execution of the project as well. I think I did a good job technically wise. It was also a good experience for me to have to opportunity to create different skin tones. I generally am confined to my own skin tone because most of my portraits are self portraits because convincing people to let you draw them is surprisingly difficult. All in all I really like this piece.
