For my oil painting class I have to a self portrait today. I've been struggling because i'm like "fuck realism?!?! BWAhajahalaksdjflah;ad"
My teacher said I didn't have to do realism... but I can't put a cartoon on my 18x24 canvas either. She gave me a longggg list of artists to look at and get inspired by and here's what I came up with.
I hope she thinks this idea is okay because if not. I don't really know what I'm going to do instead... fuck.
either way, I'm really happy with how this turned out because dude, I didn't think I could draw like this or colour like this. so hooray.
