This is the second (and possibly final) version of my self portrait!
There were three reasons for doing this portrait, and I would appreciate any comments or feedback
One of the main reasons that I made this portrait was to better familiarize myself with the program GIMP.
I also wanted to do this portrait to be more self-confident and comfortable with myself. By doing this portrait and using pictures of myself as references, I was able to do this piece without inputting my thoughts on myself into the picture. If I had done this the way that I feel
how I look, then I would have no boobs, a bigger nose, fatter arms, etc. Several times throughout working on this, I had to stop, take a deep breath, and compare it to other pictures and force myself to stop being so judgmental of myself.
The last reason to do this piece was to just have fun! I had a lot of fun on this, even though it took me so many sleepless nights, packages of cookies, and energy drinks to do it! This was not a stressful event at all, and I'm very please about it.
Please comment and let me know what ya'll think
