Self Portrait

Here I made a self portrait in Photoshop, and developed it. I did this to have a rough idea of a very skinny creature that will have my face. I will definitely change the face expression and maybe the shape of the head. Sloths doesn't have ears. Should I leave the human ones, get rid of them or come up with something totally new? :D

  1. Hey Alice!

    I think that you've got a great style here, but maybe you should now really work on possibilities for your final hybrid. I definitely think that the ears should be a human/sloth mix, so have a go at drawing what that could look like. You can keep your ideas rough, sometimes just speedily doing some drawings can be a real help, even if you don't like them.

    Push the skinny-ness and maybe change the face shape so it's a bit more sloth-like, at the moment you have sunken features but you really want to push that to get a great mix.

    Brilliant stuff though! Keep it up! :D

  3. I love the seriousness of these portraits, Alice - like the work of some gloomy, German expressionist! Very bold, very European, very early twentieth century...
