Self Portrait

Did this last night. Not a literal self portrait. More of an allegorical self portrait.

"The Prodigal Son Returns"

Re: Self Portrait

Nice work, Chris. Has a bit of an anime look to it (I hope that's not an insult).

@Bruck No that's not an insult at all! I love anime. Like I said it's more of an allegorical self portrait.

Re: Self Portrait

Chris that's really amazing. I can't even draw good stick figures so I'm always impressed with those who have artistic talent.

Re: Self Portrait

Thanks guys! This kind of represents (among other things) my return to the world of art after being told for many years that I'd never be a good studio artist and to find something more practical to do. It means a lot that y'all think it's good.

Re: Self Portrait

So as it turns out...this pic is getting published! The editor for one of the school papers happened to see it while I was studying at the Campus Center. She LOVED it and asked me to get it scanned and submit it! Paper comes out today!

Re: Self Portrait

Nice work, Chris- already making a name for yourself on campus When I went back to school I had to take a couple fine arts classes and the only one that fit my work schedule on semester was drawing. I have always joked that I need to "trace stick figures" but I took the class, applied myself, and actually had a pretty good time. Fortunately the professor graded based on progress from your starting point, and not on natural talent

You have a good hand sir, splendid work to say the least.
I was an artist of sorts when I was younger but, never went anywhere with it.
And as the say, "if you don't use it ya lose it" thankfully I've been able to make a little use of it in making pipes so far.
