Laughably 'Realistic' SelfPort by RoseSagae Laughably 'Realistic' SelfPort by RoseSagae
Okay... be kind to me xD You have to realise that the last time I ever tried to do anything realistic like this was when I was 10 years old. I'M NOT KIDDING. In fact, I was going to try to find my self portrait from then (done in the same way, just pencil) and put them side-by-side just to prove that I have improved since then but... I have no idea where it went :( I know my mom framed it (even though it was awful) and she used to have it in the guest room... but Erin moved into that room and I have no idea what they did with it xD;; OH WELL.

So yeah, remember that I only ever draw "cartoony" things. I would NEVER draw something like this except I had entered the "Portraiture" category in the fair and was going to trad. color my Nurse!Rose pic, but then I realised that I had written all over the original lineart (stuff like "Originally drawn on this date, finally colored on this date) and I was like "CRAP!!! I can't use it now!!! What am I going to do!?!!!? D:"

Then I thought well... since it's a category that I know I'd probably lose anyway, I may as well just enter a total piece of crap.

And here it is!!!!111

There... I got it out of my system. Now I can go back to cartooning >____> *will probably scrap or delete this once it really starts getting to her*

Tools of the trade: Bic Mechanical Pencil

Personally, I think this wonderfully done! :) 100 times better than what I could do, because I can't draw human faces =P

I can't either xD;; That's what we get for drawing so many animals, I guess!
hollyann Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2006

:O Amazing. My realism abilities can barely even begin to match yours! *eats drawings I did of people*

You are really good at this. :) You were able to draw the basic shape of the face, and used concave and convex (is it convex?) lines to show realistic human form. You even did well on the eyes and lips! When I try to draw them, they look like cheap stickers. :O :O

Wow...Rose really DOES have a lot of freckles <3 They add to your personality! =D

And may I add, You did a FANTASTIC job, seeing as your last try was at age 10 xD *applaudes* Realism is a bitch so you should be proud of this!! (I know I would!! =D )

At least your face looks like a face XD Whenever we did self portraits in art (only twice, luckily) I always had the most retarded drawing XD

Don't be silly Rose! This is wonderful. I can't draw people(definately not myself) to save my life. It is really realistic compared to your normal cartoon style so I say wonderful job and don't be so hard on yourself! ^^
