hi, i've been working on an oil self portrait for school recently and thought i'd post it here seeing as there seems to be a lot of traditional artists around. I've mainly completed the face and i'm about to start on the hair.
The posture looks odd (the shoulders appear disproportionate) because in the beginning i was attempting a 3/4 shot but have since abandoned it for a more straightforward front view.
Unfortunately, the digital camera didn't transfer the painting very well (particularly the deeper shadows) and it took some tweaking it in photoshop to get a more truthful representation. Despite the bad photo i was hoping to get some critiques and comments, thanks.
