Self Frustrations by BlueChocolatte Self Frustrations by BlueChocolatte
** Ive now tried to enter it into my second competition... so :S well here goes the reasons for choosing this:
I've chosen it because it portrays the deeper side of who i am; I am usually quite frustrated with my self, this driven by the need for perfection in technique, creativity and of course, myself... This frustration sometimes becomes a little more than i can handle, and it can weigh my happiness down a little. I think this is a great portrayal of myself, because my happier side is often a veil to what's really in me.

~~~
[This is a self portrait that was an assignment during class. Just sketched up, shaded in with the lined texture (all from a picture). If you look through my art, the assigned work is usually the best... I am now working on the painting that goes with this for art class too.]

that the eyes are in one line....
see, if you tilted this picture a bit anticlockwise, until it looks like the head was straight vertical, you should be able to connect your eyes by one imaginery horizontal line...
sounds compicated....
here i tried to show what i mean: [link]

Oh. now i see what you mean. Yeah that's true. I think that was maybe because for this unit our art course asked us to take a picture of ourselves contorting our faces with our hands. So i pulled my left eye down... maybe?
but thanks, next time ill sketch the picture up that way.

It's artwork like this that recieves one of two reactions - an 'omg I want to do this one day :D' reaction and an 'I can never do this D:' reaction. This inspires both ^-^ really lovely work!
