Default I feel funny posting this...

I do. I've never done a self portrait before, but really wanted to try it out. This is the result - of course, I had to include my little JRT. I'm pretty happy with it. Brandy turned out great, the sweater that I'm wearing looks a little funny, it was bunchy and dark in the ref. photo, but I may have made it too bunchy, and perhaps made too much of it up. Oh well, thanks for looking, let me know what you think.

rock on..i have never had the guts. I think a few practices of sheets draped and use ink washes will help you get the feel of material and drapery. We had to do it a dozen times... I seriously don't know what i really look like. WHen i look in the mirror i think..is that me? Which is why i have avoided the self portrait. Your brave.
