Mirror Face by toerning Mirror Face by toerning
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.

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

This is awesome!! You really do a great job capturing the 3-dimensionality of the eyes, nose, and mouth. Reminds me a bit of Nicolai Fechin... Someday I gotta learn how to paint...
