portrait art

Post by anapola » Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:05 am

Im doing a self portrait for art class, I need help with the pose? In my art class were doing a self portrait, it has to be as tall and as wide as you. Im using cardboard to make mine, you can use anything, but I don't know what pose I should put it in, any ideas?

You could try Rodin's The Thinker or similar pose of the sculpture outside the British Library. A recling figure position like Henry Moore? Or just standing with arms at your side a la Anthony Gormley? An Angel of The North pose is a good one if it reflects you.

Great suggestion, if I were you, I prefer an Angel of The North pose. It would be a great work.
