Self Portrait


Hello! I had planned on posting something else, but I felt the need to do a self portrait... things on my mind, so hopefully this image conveys that :)

Painted in the GIMP as usual with a drawing on paper first. Been a while since I painted really, its been a while since Ive really drawn outside of work either... not been in the mood of late.

Thanks to everyone who visits, its much appreciated.

Hmmm. I think need a haircut.

Ken :D

Ken, if I drew like you, I'd never be out of the mood.

I really like the caricature in this piece :)!!

RAWLS said...

I never would have pictured you looking like that... I just see you as your avatar pic....An orange bearded giant!

Charles Goatley said...

I'd gotten so used to seeing your avatar I was beginning to think you looked like that too. Hope you can find the mood to draw some more soon.

A really cool caricature. Mmmh, but i think a haircut isn't enough.

Thanks for your comment in my blog, the stuff is half traditional and half digital i like to work with the two ways so the ilustrations get a special touch...

Loving the GIMP pieces. Keep it up!

If your hair naturally has those wonderful long, yet stylish curls I'd go against cutting it! Unless you want to shorten the style a bit. Otherwise you're very metrosexual'ish (ignoring the 5 o'clock shadow). Haha.

and no, you DON'T need that haircut ken... a ponytail is what you need... perfect! ;o)
