A Self Portrait

So I have been wanting to do a Photoshop self portrait in a similar style to this portrait I did of a friend's girlfriend. I've been at it for a while, but every time I start one I begin to hate it before I'm even half way done. Anyways, I finally sat down and made one that actually kind of looks like me. I'm not sure that I like it too much, but I think that's because after a while I get sick of looking at myself. I'd much rather draw cartoony pictures of myself. Anyways, you can see the final painting below. Let me know what you think.



Below are some of failures I was talking about before.



After finally finishing the realistic painting of myself I decided to color this little doodle, to make myself feel better. I actually think this one looks most like me.

I like the portrait alot, It looks like you from the skin pigmentation to the little sticking up hairs on your head. However, I really like the last drawing of you (as the more cartoonie version). Suggestion - create a compilation of all of the drawings of you on one file. I think it will look really cool. Love JZ

Pretty good, definitely keep up the photoshop stuff. You can definitely see a progression if you look back in the archives for older stuff you've done in photoshop.
