Self Portrait Progress

So I usually hate showing people my work before it's completed, but I'm hoping this will motivate me to finish it sooner rather than later.  Here are progression pictures of what I've been working on lately.

Blank face.  Spooky?

Getting some value in there.

Kallisti was keeping me company.

Very cartoony looking at the moment.

Wow. When did I turn into Jake Gyllenhaal?

Some notes: I actually started this when I had long-ish hair, which I have recently chopped off and colored blonde.  So Now I'm just kind of making up the hair in the painting because I don't feel like changing it.  I am lazy.  You have no idea.

Also, I wear glasses, which I'm thinking I will add once I'm pretty much done with the face.  More pictures to follow soon!  I will probably paint some more today since there's like 7 inches of snow on the ground and I have the day off.  Who knows, I may even finish it today!  Probably not.  But maybe!


  1. Wish I could paint like that, cool. :0)

  2. It's turning out awesome! And your kitty is so cute too!

  3. Thanks guys! I'm alllllmost done. Pictures soon!
