Myself Drawing Me by SlimyYetSatisfying Myself Drawing Me by SlimyYetSatisfying
This is one of my self portraits that I had to do in class.....
Done with prismacolors.


For some strange reason this picture has become my No.1 Faved and Commented Deviation. I don't think it's my best work, but apparently I'm wrong. I'll be sure to do more like this in the future.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-07-12
Myself drawing me drawing me by ~FinalFantasyEva uses the contrast of the colour with the graphite really well :D ( Suggested by shuathewookie and Featured by Marker-Guru )
:iconsanirimarrone:
My first impression: whoa, look at that perspective. If you would, go by the words more than the stars- I'm bad at quantifying my opinions. Vision was midground because I didn't pick up a clear message besides it being a self portrait (but hey, it's classwork). Originality- pretty high up there since you've combined a neat perspective with an Escher-like twist.

With Technique, I have more to say. There seem to be a few scars on the paper, on the closest hand and on the face: were they caused by the metal end on the pencil? Be careful with pressure in any case. Back to the hands; the closest one looks well proportioned, although the middle- and ring- finger joints are a bit hard to see. (The shading and detail on that pencil are gorgeous by the way). The farthest hand looks a little flattened in the fingers, but that may just be my eyes. The hands on mini-you look a smidge blocky, (and something's funky with that left arm!) but that's not a huge issue for me.

But wait, there's more! It may just be my ancient monitor, but the shirt blends into itself quite a bit- took me a while to realize it had a collar and buttons. You did a good job showing how mini-you's shirt hangs down from the shoulder, and the folds in it work well. Something about the transition between mini-you and the paper is off, but I'm not really sure what. Also, the shadows around that area don't seem to fit. On the other hand (no pun intended) I commend you for incorporating the skin tones into the shadow of the near-hand (not so great at that myself). Other skin things: the reds/pinks look a little strong in some places, but overall it works.

Impact: I quite liked this piece. It's not the best I've seen, though it's definitely one of the more interesting pieces I've seen that came from class. It makes me want to draw right now, and it's feeding time, so that's saying something. Nice job!

This is the sample picture for the "Art Initiates Life" page on TVtropes. And I say you did a great job!
 Ah, and since this hole thing is a drawing of yourself drawing you, which you drew yourself. So in the end that would make it out to be you drawing you drawing you.

I agree, it's not you're best work but it talks to your viewer and you just cant plan that kind of thing, it just happens naturally.
Great concept and a great sketch, well done!

Glad to finally find the artist of this artwork, it was shown in my drawing class at my university. :D Interesting to see you did it for a class, and it was shown in my class lol. Everyone found this as a inspirational take on the "hand drawing" style artwork.
