self portraits

So I was short on ideas of what to draw thursday so I picked the old standby (myself). Instead of using a mirror, I used my computer's camera to get an interesting angle to draw my self from. It was also nice because my eyes could be looking an other direction besides straight out of the picture. The top one is more of a caricature and is painted with watercolors. I know, I know, I was feeling like being strangely obvious or something and chose to label myself "ME".

Happy Halloween! I felt like doing a headless horsewoman. She looks bored or dazed, which might actually be appropriate since it is probably a real drag to be lugging your own head around... I guess we all lug our head around, but we typically use a hands-free method. The Illustration Friday topic is "scary".  I would probably be scared of a headless person, but I'm not sure I made this one that scary. Pencil drawing colored in Photoshop.

is for fun

So I just painted this in Corel Painter just for fun. Don't be too hard on him, I only spent a short while on the painting and I had no reference. I was trying a more limited palette that was mostly yellow toned.
