    Tsumami Self-Portrait (newbie here!)

    Errr...apologies if this isn't the right place... it's going to take a while for me to get familiar... >_>;

    Anyways... this is probably the only Self-Portrait I've ever done in my life. In fact, this is the ONLY one I've ever done... (and, I'm not sure if I'll do any more... yet...).

    Tsumami Self-Portrait (newbie here!)

    Painted with Golden Acrylics on a masonite board (24X27 approx.), used a photograph of myself and the grid-line method, and being a full-time student at a Canadian Art & Design school... yep, this was a Painting assignment.
    And, unfortunately.. I couldn't figure out (at the time of the Fall Semester) how to damn-well get Skin colors. So, this portrait.... became, as my instructor said, 'Matisse-inspired.' ><;

    But, what I see wrong:

    -Facial placement, nose looks small as well as lips (despite working from a photograph, and using a grid)
    -Need more lighting on the face, I feel.
    -One eye is strange (even though that is how it looked on the photograph)
    -I need to make my paintings (in the near future, right now taking Color Theory course) brighter or something....

    And... pardon me for being self-critical of myself. It's going to be ongoing like this, really. ><; Any other critiques (if possible) appreciated, since I need a thick-ass art skin.
