Self portraits
« on: October 01, 2012, 03:46:42 PM »
So, my avatar looks a good bit like my dad - that inspired me to try altering it to look like me.

The attachment is much improved from the version I posted in Council Room; that one looks as much like my brother, provided the good Reverend assumed a hippy look.  It needed the nose lengthened.  This is actually a pretty good likeness.

So, would anyone else like to post a self portrait?  Altering something else, like I did, is fine for those who can't draw very well, like me. Kil, make sure yours is human, and wearing pants, if only out of frame.

...So then I just had to do Buster's Daddy - not quite as good a likeness, but that's him, all right.

I had to email my family with some attachments...

-And for purposes of proving that I got a decent likeness, here's me, trying to imitate the pose and not getting the lighting very close.  I did nothing to this but crop it the same way. 

Buster's Daddy says the resemblance to Horton Heath must be genetic, though we have no known people in Texas on that side of the family.

I see I need to trim my fur.

...And the oddest part is that I chose this avatar not because of any resemblance to my dad or me, but because Manuel is a deeply troubled man of who I'm very fond since I wrote about him, and because to an artist's eye, the visceral emotion of the shot, and even his wrinkles, are beautiful, and I'm proud of my work...

That would be slighty a separate topic - the world demands an artistic rendering of Tristan -not the pokemon.

Is that a processed photo?  Nice.

And do I see a long mustache?  I just knew you had a thick mustache (your handle screams it, somehow), and feel very gratified now. :)
