For this project you will create a portrait in which the main subject is the HAIR. You will be working from a photo for the face and you are to focus on giving the face both belivability and form using a wide tonal range. However, the star player in this image will be the hair. The hair of your subject should not be hair in the traditional sense, but instead should be symbolic and metaphorical. I want you also to focus on these princples of design: Balance, Rythm, and Contrast. Pay close attention to how you use the visual elements of line, texture, value, and form to convey meaning and express emotion. Additionally, it is important to think about how your art reflects your own personal voice and style.
