The elements of art that I used in my digital still life is line, texture, and value. The first element is line, how I use line is by outlining my image. The second element is texture, for texture I made these lines that made it look 3D and realistic. Last element I used it value. For value, I shaded in some parts. The relationship of the size of your texture brush and controlling the value scale of your image is that if you have a bigger and large value brush then the texture will be the same but if you have a small and more controlled brush then you are able to make shades and texture very well. The part I found very enjoyable of the digital process is basically the whole process. It was very fun and I learned a lot. The part that I found challenging about it is when we were doing the still life drawing. I was outlining my drawing from a far distance and it turned out very bad, but Mr. Sanderl told us to zoom in and that helped out a lot.

When I got the image it looked very realistic and didn't have any texture or value to it. It was also very colorful, but we wanted it to be an image that looked like it was hand drawn. So we did this process that made it looked like it was hand drawn rather than a picture. The image looked way different than it looked before, it had more value, texture, and line. For my image I stuck with the basic tutorial, I learned but I added a little advanced filter techniques but it not as much.
The portrait photo I am using is a picture of me. It was taken in Las Vegas, in a hotel me and my family was staying at. My sister is featured in it but you can't really see her because the camera was'nt able to show her very well. She is in the bottom left. This picture means a lot to me because It was the first time I ever moved to another place. This final image uses a variety of elements of art; like color, texture, value, and line. For color we used a gradient tool to make it look like a faded color to black and white. For texture we made it look real life. Value, we shaded in to bring out the tone. Last is line, for line I outlined everything. In my opinion I agree with critique results my class peers gave me for my work.
