Hi! Newbie here. I finally worked up the courage to post because this seems like a fantastic place to learn to improve.
I am not very practiced in digital painting (or painting in general) so I thought I'd attempt a self-portrait; I've used the photo attached as well as a few other photos as references (hence the differing colors). I'm aware that the composition isn't fantastic and that I'm just kind of... well, staring. xD I hadn't thought about that when I sat down to practice, to be honest. Obviously this is still a WIP... Feel free to critique anything and everything.
