Self Portrait by elizile Self Portrait by elizile
'Tis I.

Kinda. The lips are off. I think I made them too Keira Knightley-ish...or something.
But whatever. At least the hair turned out cool.

Poo. I want a scanner.

Your drawing skills are amazing... I swear this one looked like a photo in the thumbnail (and even in the small view size! )

I can see through the possibly bad scan to how well done your self-portrait is. And it's a fine work. I must add that you are very lovely Elizabeth. (I'm married going on 39 years and I'm going on 60 so don't think I'm flirting.) You don't look modern. You look like a movie star of the 1940's.

Still, please get to a better scan and post it again please.

I dunno why I never responded to this, but yes. It really does. It looks AMAZING. I can't stop staring at the face (which.. uhh.. doesn't translate into some lesbian-esque obsession with you, I promise. XD) It's gorgeous. You're gorgeous. I love this.

Wow! Very nice! =D I love the shine on your hair, and it is an interesting pose for a portrait. Have you got photoshop- if you have, there should be some way of removing the yellow colour, if you don't like that.

Good golly gosh..i simply could never bring myself to do a self portrait. Massive congrats here however, as you have both the artistic skill (in spades) as well as the (very beautiful) face to produce a portrait of such richness and quality. Uber impressed.

Wow, this is great! Did you use a photoreference? The dark shadows sort of suggest a flashlight. *eternally curious*

elizile Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, I used a reference. It was just a shot I got of myself with the digicam.

As far as the flashlight effect goes....well...the flash on that camera is REALLY bright... :shrug:

Thanks for the comment! :)

I used to get bored with stuff and skip all the little details. It pays to have some patience. I wasn't expecting the hair to turn out that cool. :D

Hah, yea.. I can't sit still and do details, but thats mainly why i'm a writer, not a sketch artist, or anything of that sort. lol

I strain myself so much harder to write. It takes me forEVER. And yet it's satisfying, like a work of art that turned out the way you wanted it to.

I miss writing. I haven't in a long time. I have, like, constant writer's block. :(
