Self portrait for advanced computer illustration class. It's meant to be both disturbing and pretty.

This reminds me of a parody I made of one of Shakespeare's more famous sonnets--about his mistress who is really very unappealing, and really is a humorous poem itself---anyways one of the lines I wrote goes: "If pimples be roses his face is a garden"............
But this piece is powerful, it speaks volumes.

Lol yeah, that was done after my piece, I saw it in ImaginaFX about a month after I painted mine. My first thought was :tehy ripped me off!" but of course, artists come up with the same ideas independently all the time.

Reminds me of when I had chicken pox: "The sores will, at first, look like dewdrops on rose petals". Ha! So poetic; so freaking painful. >.<

This is fantastic. It really gives you an uneasy feeling, but at the same time, it's beautiful, so you have to stop and stare. The way the flesh blends into the petals makes my skin crawl (but in a good way). c:
