This is a half-self-portrait and half character concept drawing. This is not the creature I actually picture myself as, but it was a challenge as I had to be careful with absolutely everything, especially facial features as I was actually planning to do a complete self portrait. But it turned out this way and I hope that i don't look that shitty comparing to all those beautiful women you see online every day.
The strings.....oh yes, the magic strings that I constantly try to unwrap are the fragile thoughts, imaginations....consequences....lives that I can control. I think that this is a pretty complicated painting to explain and there is too much personal stuff to it that I would like to keep for myself...
Anyways, about the technical stuff:
It took me 2 days to finish, Photoshop only.
I've spent most of the time on the HANDS (bloody hell, thought I was going to kill myself, but didn't happen just yet)
Not much reference photos taken...no, just one of me which I will not post
And no tutorial this time...or at least today.
