Self Portrait in Watercolor by shimbo-kun Self Portrait in Watercolor by shimbo-kun
Technically, this is a self portrait. I didn't want it to be, but I needed a reference from that angle, and I needed it fast, so I took a pic on my cell phone, did a quick sketch, then just did my own thing with the colors and shading.

So yeah. It's in watercolor. :3 Did it in like... an hour or so. It's really quick, but it's cool, I think. ^^

OH GOD! FULLVIEW! o.o Otherwise, the eyes look weird. o.o'''

my hands shake in fear of this medium, but you have a very controlled stroke.
do more watercolors, please. they're breathtaking.

Pity,but I'm glad that you're having a real life, as opposed to spending all your time on the computer like me.

I'll be looking forward to seeing your art. ^^

Maybe I will... but I'm not sure how much of it fits under this sn. I usually reserve this sn for my male-oriented/male erotic artwork... my other screen name is more for my other stuff. If you're interested in it, it's motosuwa.
