Self portrait...


Not really haha... a study. Unfortunately not from life, but the next best thing, a photograph. Ive not done something like this in a while and need more practice at it, particularly thinking about light and form... hopefully more coming. Need to level up for 2011!

Ken :D

You know...I have to say, it resembles you a bit. Hehe ^_^

This is looking awesome! If you say you haven't done this in a while and you need to practice, well I can't wait to see how the next one will look!

Cya!

lol I got quite a shock when the page was loading up.....I was like, 'Where's his hair?!'
Then all the wrinkles came in and I was like, 'Thats not Ken!' :)

Nice Volume!

TJ: How dare you! O_O haha! (which bit??) Thanks, hopefully next one will be better... I forgot how hard it is. So many little details and trying to convey the subtleties of form... tres difficult! AHh thank you! The header is temporary I think, trying to sort out my blog, but I dont have much time :D So its currently half baked... :)

Laurent: hahaha! Yeh man I went bald over christmas... glad you knew it wasnt me :D Thanks dude! Hope youre all set for new year!

Oh man, you've certainly aged--hey, wait a second...

Glad to see you're still posting! I haven't moved to Wordpress (YET), but school and World of Warcraft have been stealing away my time. :(

Ken said...

Ahhh WoW.... the time eater. I almost bought it once, but my friend said to me, if you buy that we will never see you again.

So I didn't buy it.

It sure looks fun though! Happy New year :D
