I forgot to post the finals of these paintings!
Here's the self portrait, all finished. So much work went into this... it's crazy. I'm very proud of what I did, but.. I do want to move on from it!
This is more of a tentative "final." It's as far as I got by the end of the semester. Perhaps I'll pick it up and finish it sometime, but not now!
I got extremely frustrated, somehow, with these portraits at the time. I was trying to force too much from them, instead of letting them be. I was way too stiff, and way too straightforward. This semester, I'm working on curing that!
