Can you see it in my eyes?

People always tell me that I capture a little bit of myself into all my drawings. I believe all artists do so... I see it in my friends work all the time. This time, however, I thought I'd do a self portrait...I don't remember the last time I drew myself intentionally-- probably in highschool for a project. Anyways, heres a fast mirror sketch.

That does look like you. Is your hair really that long now? My little handsome Aladdin.

Julissa said...

Yeah, that does look like you! It is all in the eyes hehe.

You're right though because people have told me the same thing. Once I did a series of woman painting and people thought they were all self-portraits. It must just be in our self-consciousness or just the fact that we look at ourselves everyday hehe.

Ciao Abz! That looks really cool! I do see the resemblance when I look at your profile picture ^_^. Love your hair!
You know, the Aladdin comment, makes me think you have a flying carpet...

Great portrait! I love the lines! Everytime I draw a face, people ask if I'm drawing myself. I guess artists unconciously draw what's familiar.

Eugenio Enrique said...

Hey Abz! portrays is always a challenge, and in this case I think it captures you yourself, well done!

By the way, please, take a look at my last post..

Best,

EE

I've never tried to do a self portrait...I don't think I could stand looking in the mirror that long.

You did a great job on this!

I get told the same thing! Once I finally saw it, it was a lot easier to really change up my characters and styles!

Thanks back to you for stopping by my blog! Your work is great! I'll definitely be stopping by again!!

Oooh, great self portrait! Love the strong lines and the intensity in your eyes... They are the eyes of a tormented artist soul. :)
