Aforementioned traditional art. This is a 2X3foot Oil paint self portrait for class. It's done with combination north light and artificial light, 8 hours. I worked from the mirror and the likeness is actually pretty good, if i do say so myself!

Maybe I'll write a more substantial comment tomorrow, i just really want to get this off my chest tonight but it is now...late.

<edit> uploaded a different reproduction with MUCH better colors. this is WAY closer to the original, but you know how that goes!</edit>

You did a fine job with this, particularly with the points of light on the tip of your nose and your brow.

and i like how its sort of
umm..... not completly neat and tidy
its nice and flowy and more expressive
sometimes being too polished ruins the feeling you know?
