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. :)

Oh, that's beautiful! You've captured a very loving look from both you and the dog.

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...:rolleyes: 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.

Wow - thank you everyone for the support and kind words - it's appreciated more than you know! It is weird to look at myself on paper ... putting Brandy in the picture helps though. :)
Thanks again guys!!!!!
