Where is my mind? by Charlie-Bowater Where is my mind? by Charlie-Bowater
A self portrait :noes:

I find portraits really difficult. Which I why I never do them. :P

But I've always wanted to try, so here you go: ME D:
I've tried to be as honest as possible. It was quite strange painting myself and making an effort to not be flattering about it. I have no idea whether or not I like it :bucktooth:

Anyway, title is of course named after the awesome 'Where is my mind?' by the Pixies.

Photoshop CS3, Wacom Intuos and a fucking scary reference of myself. Bokeh texture by ~H-D-STOCK

You have an incredible talent. I like all the colors here and the portraits is amazing. I'm still working on my first painting on digital but at the same time I'm learning my colors/light/shades. Thanks, for the inspiration and keep up the great job ;)

You probably don't realise it but you draw yourself all the time. People sometimes say that my characters look like me but I can't see it.

Very nice though. I'm a big fan.

You did an amazing job on this, Self portraits are incredibly difficult, im impressed. Not suprised though, all of your artwork is brilliant, you are an inspiration, I can only hope i can reach your level someday :) The expression is spooky however lol..you need to do one with a smile!

Wow, this is AMAZING! I usually flatter myself way too much when doing self-portraits. -______-
But I don't think you COULD flatter yourself too much, we've seen your picture young lady. ;)

Gorgeous colours and shading, and stunning likeness! Make more! 8D
