I Scare Myself Sometimes

me... scaring myself
so i thought i'd sit down and try out the self-portrait thing. it was an EDM challenge recently, and i haven't been doing those lately. i stuck with black and white because i didn't feel ready to try out color with water colors and people yet. i've got a lot of practice to do yet, and i need to really start with the basics, i figure.
so... the results aren't so bad. here's the picture it's based off of:
me and my girls

i'm actually pretty happy with how it turned out. it actually looks like me, i think. the crappy part is that it's not perfect and i scare myself looking at it. but though it's not perfect, it's work in progress and progress is always good.


  1. I like it a lot. Granted it's totally frightening, but then again so is the photo... whew! look at those bags under my eyes.

    My one comment on your portrait, the frames of your glasses are so solid and dark, it looks like they are set back into your face, cut in sort of... does that make any sense? I don't know how to fix it or anything, just something that struck me.

  2. Wow, I really like it. I've never tried a self-portrait, and I'm quite scared to even attempt it with watercolors.
