20 Minute Fun by Kyena 20 Minute Fun by Kyena
I hate self portraits or painting portraits of existing people in general. However I wanted to try out some new things and used a picture of myself as reference. The outlines are roughly TRACED from the actual Photograph.

Everything else is just added freehand. Mostly done for fun and relaxation in about 20 Minutes. I plan to do a bit more in this mixed style. I was always fond of mixing plain flat coloring with semi realistic one.

Your traced? I lost all respect for you.

I kid! Tracing is very much acceptable for a piece that's stricly practice (hell, I found out my favorite artists trace in there works, which was a slap in the face for me). Great piece btw, always good to see an artist trying new things.

Wow I wish to see something as strong and expressive in the future. I think the black areas would look even better with a bit more texture on them. This shows that you don't always need hours to make masterpieces. Keep it up.

I made the black areas purely flat on purpose - too much textures wouldn't be good :)
Thanks though!
