Here’s a self portrait I did! I should do more, it’s really good for the ol’ skill set to try to do a self portrait a year. I think my last one was in my final year of art school. This one’s just a quickie ink looking one though, nothing fancy. I look so smarmy in this! XD

Done in Photoshop. Alas, not real ink!

    This is extremely pretty ! The use of thick lines are awesome! also...the way you did the lips are soo natural!

      Oops, I tried to respond to you and responded to myself instead! XD

      Thank you! I used to think ink lines needed to be fine and uniform to be pretty, but I'm learning to loosen up more and more.

    So realistic! I'm always amazing by the things Photoshop can do. I try to remember that whenever I bitch about how expensive it is.

    And I've always really loved the word smarmy XD

      It's definitely ridiculously expensive, I think there are better alternatives for digital artists to be honest. It's versatile, and it's what I was trained with, so I have it! XD

      SMARM

    Very cool to see you using a very different style from usual. I like it! Even if you do think you're better than us. ;)

    Did you make it home before the storm or are you stuck at your sisters? Hope you're doing well.

      I'm totally alive, yes! The drive home was pretty scary because of low visibility, but with no ice and pretty good roads I decided to risk it. Hooray for being alive!

    Hah! Is this a "Yea, I could totally make that garbage truck look like a jeweled queen." kinda smarmy or maybe something on the order of "Ooh baby, particles are just really compact energy waves. Mmmmm." ?

    You are really cute, and you did a pretty good job there.

  • Link

    This is actually really cute! (I swear I don't mean that as awkward flirting oh my god. |D)

    I just really like how you did the nose and the head tilt and the expression and. YES. It's a cute stylization while also being accurate to reality. :3

      Aw thank you! I gotta do more like this then, it's great practice. Maybe with other people's faces too.

    You could easily turn this into a vector graphic. This is the sort ot image that would work as a column header or blog icon. the sense of design works. looks pro. Good job.

      Hey true, I could! =D Thank you!

  • Link

    Oh hey there, I'm pretty obviously better than you. ;)

  • Link

    I love how well you captured your likeness with just a small amount of lines ("brush strokes")!

    your line work is so simple but it holds so much information :D really nice
