Self Portrait by Elle-H Self Portrait by Elle-H
[EDIT] Okay, so I couldn't leave this for 24 hours without making an edit. Sorry for spamming your inboxes! D: What do you think about the added texture? Good or bad?

Well, I finally completed a self portrait. I usually have difficulty getting a good likeness, but I feel pretty confident with this one. :)

I applied some of the things I learned from my oil painting class here. Looks even more "painterly" than usual. Heh.

You're a beautiful girl :3
This picture almost looks like a Photograph.
Love the brightness parts on your eyes, lips and earring :D
And the textures are nice too (:

Hate to be Negative Nancy here, but I think perhaps you made your face a little too rounded, too wide through the cheeks and jaw? And you also look a little scared out of your mind. LoL

heh. That's my look of intense concentration. Me looking at myself in a mirror under heavy scrutiny... apparently I scare myself. lols

Maybe I've gained weight? Just kidding. Perhaps sharpening up the shadow on the left side of the jaw would help...

It looks gorgeous! :heart: I don't think it looks painterly, you've blended it way too well for that to be true, so don't worry about it! :hug: :meow: Totally amazing, I'm speechless xD I feel bad about not writing more, but I'm busy spazzing out at how awesome this is~! *A* <3333

this is really cool! I love that you used accessible and affordable software and prove that you don't have to use CS to do stuff!

Thanks! Heheh, you know what they say about necessity. Though honestly, I'd never attempted using Elements to actually paint befor a happy accident I had a few days ago. And when you're using tools this basic, you really don't need much.

I think you pretty much know what your'e doing on trad media so it helps. I spend a lot of time probably not tapping the full power of what I have because I don't understand how it's supposed to work in real life. (I seriously make it up as I go.)
