Art 3 Final Exam

What are your artistic strengths? What are your artistic weaknesses? What can you do to improve your art as you move forward? 
My main artistic strength is pencil. I love painting but I'm not the best at it. I really like drawing eyes and shading. My weakness is definitely painting. It is my favorite but I just find acrylic paint to be abnormally hard for me to do and get it to look right. 
Here is my pencil drawing from Art 3:

Select your favorite piece in Art 3. Describe how you created it, why it is your favorite, and what you think this piece says  about you as an artist. Why do you think this piece is better than the rest of your work? What makes it "good"?
My favorite piece in Art 3 was a sketch that I did practicing drawing a crying eye. I honestly think it is the best thing I've ever drawn. It wasn't a final piece but it lead to a final piece which is also above that was a pencil drawing. The eye is my favorite because to me it's the most realistic piece that I've drawn. I believe this piece shows that I am an emotional person but that also shows that I can shade well. This piece is better than all of my work because even tho it was a sketch I still worked very hard on it and it shows an emotional time during my life. I believe what makes it good is the detail and time I spent on it. 
Here are the pictures:

For this project we all had to write down what we personally thought our weaknesses and strengths were on a piece of paper along with other things, like what we like to do in our spare time. Then we switched them with people in the class and had to do a blind portrait biased off of that paper. My paper talked about stress so I didn't a girl with a "MOST LIKELY: To be stressed out" ribbon.  (you have the picture)  


For this art project we could do whatever we wanted to do. We could use whatever medium we wanted and do whatever we felt like. I decided that I needed to practice faces so I did an eye crying and then completed the rest of the face including shading.
