self portrait by Seth-Desmoen self portrait by Seth-Desmoen
this was the final for my painting class, a self portrait. I tried using a photo reference at first but didn't like the direction it wsa going, so I used a mirror and did it freehand. I went kinda wild with the color theory, but I like how it turned out.

20X24 acrylic

25 hours

I like colors which You used. Shadows and lights are brilliant. I'm seeing nice depth of field in arms. Great work!
But I'm little socked - You aren't lion, even lizard ;-)

haha, thats what my mom said. I guess I got frustrated when I was doing it and since it was off a mirror, it ended up in the painting :D

I love the colors in this. It has a sort of Van Gogh feel.

thanks, I was trying to use some color theory I'd learned in a previous class. well, that and I was intimidated by trying to match flesh tone realistically :D

Wow, that is really impressive. A big step up for you. You....are....improving. And it shows.

And indeed this makes me jealous! But so does the work of nearly every other "serious" artist.

By my reasoning that means my body should be liquified and sprayed on schoolyard children. At least I will die with dignity.
