Selfportrait1 by Gorrem Selfportrait1 by Gorrem
Saw the Zorn exhibit Isabella Gardner Museum here in Boston, immediately went home excited to try a self portrait, since I hadn't painted anything from life in years. Went home, set up a mirror against the radiator and painted for 2 hours. Most of what I accomplished was realizing that I am in fact, NOT Zorn, but at least I broke my not-painting-from-life streak.

I don't usually look this intense, it's just the face I make when I'm painting. Or going to the bathroom.

You can see an animated .gif of the process on my blog here:

Your lighting on this is quite stunning my friend.  Very nicely done.  Really digging the rim blue light you have on the neck.

For some reason I was convinced you were a girl for the whole time I was following you. Epic fail. XD This is a lovely painting, It's great to see fantasy-artists' life based work to get a feel of their technical art abilities without being distracted by cool weapons and glowy stuff. Very nice.

Lol thank you but uh, if I may ask why did you think I was a girl? I won't take offense :P

I think a combination of your name (I know it's gender neutral, but I have known more girls called Devin and Devon than boys in my experience), and the girl face as your avatar. XD Plus purely the demographics of dA makes me assume anyone I don't know is a man is probably a woman.

Basically a lot of asshat assumptions mashed together! :D

Thanks for not taking offence. Keep up the awesome work!

You have very slim, serious facial features. It makes the grim expression all the better, it looks great :heart:.

Show her Treasure Island with Bale and Oliver Reed or Velvet Goldmine maybe and stand next to tv. Empire of the sun not so much. He was too young. Oh and The machinist wouldn't be such a good choice as well.
