:bounce: I got around to taking pictures of my paintings. So I smooshed them into a blog post, and am now shamelessly advertising it here!
(The images are huge, so I can't actually post them here. :blush: )
Look! A new sig.

I usually paint nudes so I can't post them here because there are children and parrots present.

self portrait. Done at school with photoshop for an asignment. The face is too long and the eyes are too bright, but the acne is dead on.

Those are pores, or blackheads. I'm not sure.

Disclaimer - I know nothing about art. I can draw chemical structures and geometric figures and that's it.

The eye blood vessels seem too sharp compared to the rest of the picture. Given that the rest of the face looks sort of soft-focus, the blood vessels look very sharp and draw attention to them.

It's a good picture but treating the eyes with the same level of fuzziness as the lips would help (I think).

Edit - Also, you look cute (in a strictly non-predatory way) :shocked: Stop fussing so much over what you look like and enjoy youth while you have it :smile:

A self portrait is usually about what the artist feels about themselves expressed visually. I don't think you're composed solely of acne and blackheads! :shocked: (Plus, who said self portraits have to look like you? Mine is purple!)

I agree with DB, cute! (also non predatory. Though I don't think I'm that much older than you anyway)

Her nose is shorter and her eyes are farther apart. The grumpy expression and the hair are right. The zits are correct sometimes. I must say, that's one of the most realistic whiteheads I think I've ever seen in an artwork.

Her eyes used to be blue, but they've turned turquoise in recent years. I'd think that was really strange if Ubi Dubius hadn't started with blue eyes as a child and had them turn green.
