This is one of a multitude of 'self-portraits'. I believe that everything I do is in essence a self portrait but once you've been made to do more obvious ones after a while, for me anyway, they become a little monotonous. This one in particular was done first semester this year for a drawing class. My prof was one who was very into realism so my work didn't always go over all that well. However I'd rather take a bad mark than do work that doesn't come from who I am.
Still not finished but an ongoing piece, the outline is what I handed in and was up till 5:30 the morning it was due to finish it that far.I eventually decided to add colour to the piece, using the same small group of colours to fill in each section which has become a lot more time consuming than I had originally imagined.
This is currently where the piece is at. I haven't done much on it lately but intend to hopefully finish it this summer.
