Deconstruction Self Portrait by Th3w-san Deconstruction Self Portrait by Th3w-san
Another assignment for my epic Drawing II class.
This one was "self portrait with deconstruction." The professor was intentionally fairly vague about explaining it further; he showed us a lot of Dali and Magritte and then pretty much just turned everyone loose on it.

Not really any particular deep meaning behind this one; it was mostly just playing with shapes and composition and media.


It's charcoal and ink; probably took about 20 hours or so in total (spent way too long on it, honestly).

Also, you can't tell from here but it's pretty freaking huge (at least by my standards). here is a picture of me standing egotistically next to this egotistical self-portrait in order to provide a sense of scale.

What really catches my eye is the subtle texture on the warping checkerboard structure, and the way you've used the light to bring it out. :)

Knowing that you aren't actually egotistical, I can look at that second picture and laugh. XD

Dang, though... it IS huge. D: Love all the little details, especially on the tiles.
