Howdy everyone! :iconbummiesplz:

I know that I market myself as a vector artist/animator, but that doesn't mean I still don't have the foundational skills in place to create some fancy fine art. ^^ This piece was created during my stay at the Savannah College of Art & Design for my Life Drawing class back in 2009. We were required to create a piece that included a self-portrait of our face, hand, and foot. So, logically, I decided that my ligaments had turned against me!

Feel free to let me know what you think!

How in the name of celestia did you manage to self portrait your hand, your foot and your face at the same time in that angle? That would require some serious yoga.

I did a self-portrait of myself as well, but well... With a different style and shading.

Is he afraid of the hand gun or the smelly foot? Nice face reaction you put there, btw. Your pretty good, Zach. I hope that Double Rainboom will be just as epic. If not, better.

Person: Eat the foot or I'll shoot.
You: ok... *omg that gun is so real*. =P

I love how the hand and foot look. This is such a fun picture to look at.

You put a lot of character into this. I've seen a lot of self portraits in this day, but most of them aren't nearly this much fun!
