Self Portrait, Week 1 at ITP.
According to Collins Dictionary, “a situation or experience that alternates between making you feel excited, exhilarated, or happy and making you feel
sad, disappointed, or desperate.” – Nun’s edit “nervous, anxious or overwhelmed”.
Sketching – sketch an outline on paper
Defining coordinates and functions – define coordinates of the sketched outline and define which functions to use to illustrate the graphics
Identifying layers – identify the order of the front/back layers
Coding – code using p5.js web editor
Rearranging layers – rearrange layers to best illustrate the outlined image
Arc – the arc function was difficult to understand and I ended up compromising the design and doing it by trial and error
Graphic pitfall – it was difficult to get my hair to look like it’s not falling against gravity, therefore, I rotated the whole image and changed the project outlook to look as if I am upside down (which technically answers the objective of the portrait as well).
The before and after of the rotation.
