Illustration Friday: Portrait

Well this is a journey to the past for me. I did this self portrait in . . . college I think. We're talking a l-o-n-g time ago. I never claimed to be a painter, so this is certainly not proficient in that sense. And scanned in, I see some proportion flaws. But to this day, I still feel like this looks like me (even now) more than any other attempt I ever made in my life (except for my bud monster maybe - upper right corner). I just think that's kinda funny.

wonderful portrait; i like the choice of earthy tones. Self portraits, I think, are the most difficult -- you pulled it off beautifully.

Very strong portrait! Awesome job! I have never done a serious self portrait...too chicken, I suppose! Yours is wonderful!

I like the colors you chose and the broad strokes. This has a brooding and almost wild look...very cool!

Carla, If you come back by - nothing personal. You're nice note popped up three times. Turns out you can never really get rid of these things - excess or not!

Thanks to all for the nice comments!
