April 25th is DNA Day, and Teresa Robeson of One Good Thing has challenged WordPress artists to celebrate their DNA on the 25th of every month with a self portrait. So here’s a picture of my face!
I’ve always had a tough time with self portraits, or with portraits of real people in general. It’s always much easier to design a character from scratch than it is to try and capture the look of a real person, especially when that person is yourself. The day I drew it I kept coming back and fixing, tweaking, messing around with it, but I’m pretty happy with the end product.
