SP from Mirror



An update on my self portrait done from the mirror... I think this at least looks like me. I'm working on a commission too, but this was bothering me so I decided to attack it one last time.

Holly, I haven't done a self portrait since I was forced to in school. It's a hard thing to do, and as Arti said, it's hard to smile at oneself (or do anything but have a look of extreme concentration) when looking in a mirror. You've have made good progress since you took this down from the blog. It does look like you, but I sense that you aren't yet happy with it.

Thank you, Arti and Gary. Gary, you are right - I'm not happy with it! I just put it down because I have a commission to finish. I am satisfied with the general proportions, but the background is too dark, and the skin tones aren't quite right yet. I hope to post an update Friday. Thanks for watching!
