Nice self portrait Matt. Especially if it is your first time using painter. Painter takes a little while to get used to. Good stuff man. I really like the way you rendered your hair. Very nice. I think you should post this in the guest self portrait gallery instead though so everyone can see your stuff and comment on it! Go into the section "Andrew Jones Self Portrait of the Day" and there is a subcategory called "Guest self portraits" . That's where we all post our self portraits. Good work Matt.
