Self Portrait (Sep 2014) [EDIT: Feb 2015]

By messyb
I wanted a new self portrait for my videos so here it is. It's not perfect but it's a lot better than the last ones.

For the record, the videos are the biggest reason why it seems like I do so many drawings of myself. The other reason is that I don't upload most of my other work, because either it's rubbish, I can't be bothered colouring/shading/digitizing it, or all of the above. So it's not due to egotism (although I am pretty fucking awesome sometimes).

EDIT: I had some issues with finding a way to have my mini-beard look good on the final image. I might end up adding it another time.

EDIT 2 (08/02/2015): I completely redid the shading. It was way too subtle and difficult to notice in the original version, but now the shading is thicker, and I think that the whole image looks much more three-dimensional than it used to. I also changed the facial expression. I think that this one is much more emotive, even if it's unrealistic. Original version of the image can be found here.
