Self portrait by Iruuse Self portrait by Iruuse
What ye looking at? >:[ 

I found a very unflattering sun-in-da-face photo of myself and decided to exaggerate it in this color/facial expression study.

I hope you enjoy, critics are always welcome. :)

I love this picture. She looks as if she was just caught crying. The facial expression is subtle but somehow clear. I definitely get vibes of her mood and emotion, and a little backstory too.

She stood out in the thumbnails for me because when I look at her, I feel that I'm looking at the face of a character I've had for a few years, but never knew what she looked like. Thank you. :3

Many artists would be amazed at how creative they can be with a face and a bright mono-directional light source.  I'm glad you chose that photo for this work. I'm lovin' it!!! ;-) (Wink)

Probably the most haunting in a good way self portraits I've ever seen. And I've seen damn good ones in all kinds of mediums and edges/techniques. Moleskin, watercolor, oil, charcoal, etc. But this right here. Its so catchy.

You managed to exaggerate the facial features and realism in your tones/lighting/painting without making it lose it's sense of realism and without turning it into a typical "caricature" or "anime/comic" look. It's gorgeous.
