More on the self portrait


I've had this thing up in my office all day and have looked at it repeatedly but once I took a photo of it I could suddenly see all the ways it looked wonky. The eyes, ears and jowls should be aligned horizontally and think the right eye (viewers left) should be further out and the left eye maybe further down. Anyway, If I don't do more this weekend I will try to finish it in Monday's class.

It's got this crazy Dr. Jekyll thing going on, if you hold up your hand and block one side then the other, the dark side of the face is like a wolf man scowling while the light side is a human smiling.

  1. Hoooowwwwlllll! Go wolf man!! Looks great with the colour in there now. Have you checked to see if your real face is perfectly symmetrical? Or are you trying to use this as an opportunity to be extra-handsome?
