Water Self Portrait Study

I HATE painting myself, it's so creepy.
But my eyes were hardly visible in this which made it less spooky; I hate looking into my own eyes as I paint them. Blergh.

Digital painting. This is for school (my topic is 'distortion' so I'm distorting faces with water - stupid me, choosing water to study...) and took two days. I was starting to feel very bad that I was making a stupid fox dress up game and yet I had done pretty much nothing art-wise for school. =P Now that I've painted this I feel much better. And you get to see me tipping water over my head.

Apologies for the facial expression; it's so angsty. :ohnoes:

Don't be so rash ... this is probably one of your best pieces.

You don't hate it because you "hate painting yourself" ... you hate it because it takes considerably more work and skill to do this kind of work successfully. Don't worry... you're going to be Oh-KAY.
