The design dose use the entire area of the composition. all 9 values are used in this composition some more than others. the broad value scale wasn’t used that much. I just used my value strips to judge what value I should use in the design. I do believe that the portrait dose break break each value into a flat plane. The grid properly uses all shapes in the correct spot. its not perfect but the value and shapes of the strips dose fit and creates a facial proportion. I believe that i did not outline any feature around the head and the face. I do believe that the final design has been done in a professional matter for the most part. It look amazing from a dissidence like in the picture above. but close up, there is some spots that was not covered and the eyes should have been a different color in my opinion. other than that, it look very good and was done in a professional matter.
