14" X 11"

Prismacolor markers, and Nexus Ebony .30 :heart: on Vellum paper.

This is a self portrait. I created it to enter it into :icontraditionalart:'s Unconventional Self Portrait contest.

I've kept to my usual MO...that is to use all 50+ colors in my collection...Oh and I ordered more because, as you know, you can never ever have too many colors. ;-)

It took about 12 hours...and my hand is cramped now. Ouch.

Hah, thanks for checking it out. I'm like a kid when it comes to prismacolor markers. I have a ton of them and feel like I have to use every single color in the box. lol.

Very cool. It looks like you have some interest in tribal designs.

I do like those sorts of designs. I actually use to do a lot of mehndi a few years ago, and that has definitely carried over into my art.

Thanks! I surprised myself a little with this one, and that is making me really focus on drawing for a while.

Again, nice work. I think you are operating at a more comfortable level here and that is especially rare to see when we turn our observations inward!

Cool stuff
