Self Portrait

9 Favourites
This is another older piece, my first (and right now, only)
self portrait. I'm not sure why I took the picture this way,
but I like it ^^;

I did this in Art II at my school, so part of the assignment
was to used an odd color for the skin, which is why I look like the wicked witch of the west XD

You might notice a slight glare on the upper right hand corner, because
the piece was framed when I took the picture. And if you're wondering what that dot is on the left
side of my lip, it's a monroe piercing:]

your shading technique is amazing.

im jealous
ArtisticObsession's avatar
:D thanks so much!!

I burnished a lot in this piece.
buy yourself a clear wax pencil and
I'm sure you'd get the exact same shading
technique down :]
