Dog Portrait

1. Who did you choose to do a portrait of? Why did you choose that person? 
I chose to do a portrait of one of my dogs because I have never done a project involving animals and I thought it would be interesting. The idea also worked well with my materials. 

2. When brainstorming about this project how did you decide what would be the best materials to use to create it? Explain how your material choice impacted the look of your piece. Why was this so important. Explain.
I chose to use different types and colors of rocks for my project. I thought it would be different and a good idea. My materials impacted my piece because it made my project look more edgy and rough. It also added texture which made it look better and more 3D.

3. Describe the risks you took or that were involved in creating the project. What were the challenges you faced?
I took a risk with my project by doing an animal. Most people did portraits of themself but I wanted to do something different so I did my dog. Some challenges I faced with my project was trying to decide how to do my background. It was also hard to find the right sized rocks to fit together to form my piece. 

4. How did your choices impact the look and feel of the piece? Did your choice of materials have any connection with the person you chose to represent? 
The choices I made improved the feel of my piece because it made it look 3D and more realistic. Using rocks added texture and I think it turned out nicely.
