Self Portrait

Here's something I started last year for introduction to watercolor in my illustration class. We only had a class period and week to finish it for homework (I didn't really finish to my liking.)

So I finished it in the summer.

I'd say caricature is definitely not my comfort zone. Looking back, I probably could've tweaked the features I exaggerated.

Anyway, what I do like about it is it counters a lot of the serious, moody, and downright emo self-portraits I've seen done by a LOT of people. I want to show my enthusiasm for stuff, like right in the middle of my commonly exclaimed phrase... "THAT'S AWESOME!"

8.5" x 11", watercolor, color correction in Photoshop. Didn't record how long it took.
