So me and Jair are both attending CCAD now and they forced us to create these self portraits so we can 'connect' with the other students...right
I finished mine two and a half weeks prior to the due date (unlike denart)... i did the initial portrait from life... the picture was a little small for my taste but... so i took advantage of the "be as creative as you want" line... so it became a doodle page for the week... on the right are my favorite mediums all from life... above that is some stuff from imagination and the rest is imagination... i put in some things or symbols that define the sources of my inspiration... (abandoned buildings, spiders, broken glass, graveyards... etc.)...
I finished mine the night I arrived. All my other self portraits were all dark and depressed Time for a little change! (and also because there's too many emo posers at college)
I went for a grayed out look by first covering the entire paper with willow charcoal and then used 2H and HB. heheh
Done with a mirror with Jair behind on my bed, sketching something, making me nervous...
EDIT: oh yeah, we would love some crits!
