My favorite part about this artwork is how I drew it. My least favorite thing is how I colored it. My inspiration for this picture is keep trying until you think it's good enough for you. If I could change anything about this picture it is how I colored it. Thats it. I like how I drew it connected lines and the design. Some concepts I liked least while making this picture is that I can't always restart sometimes. I have to just finish with full effort. Something I did to create this artwork piece is I had to use a ruler and always use pencil when I draw and use colored pencils or marker to color it and always try my best.

My favorite thing about this picture is that it is a reminder of who I am. My least favorite thing about this picture is how I colored it. The inspraion for me to create a price of artwork like this is the saying "you don't know what you can do until you try". If I could change anything about this piece of art is how I colored it because I know that I could do better than what I did. Some concepts I have learned while creating this picture is that no one really knows what they capable of doing until they try so never give up before you try. The only thing that surprised me is how I colored it. I thought it was neater but it wasnt. To create this price of work I had to do nothing hard. All I had to do was draw things the describe me and then color it with my name in it.

My favorite part about this artwork is explaining everything that I like and what I do. My least favorite part about this artwork is the coloring because I didn't know what to color each part but I made it work. The inspiration of this artwork is telling basically my life story and all my hobbies and everything I like. If I could create the artwork again I would change the letters and the coloring of the work because it looks kind of sloppy in my opinion. The concepts I learned about creating this piece of artwork is how you can explain all your hobbies and everything I like in 16 pictures. The one thing that surprised me about this project is how I explained everything in these pictures. The stuff I did to create this project/artwork is tell people everything I liked in these little pictures.
