When drawing a person, proportions are very important because it helps make the person look real. If you draw a person with really long legs and really short arms, its gonna look weird. I showed mass and volume by creating folds in the sweater and making the legs and arms curved and not stick straight. By doing this project, I learned how to draw the details of a person instead of just the person. I used charcoal pencil because it helps with shading and getting those really dark values and other values too. With this project I had the most trouble with making her seem proportionate. I also had trouble with getting the hair to look okay. As you can see I went a little overboard with the amount of strands of hair.
