I belong to a One Photo a Day group on Triibes. We also occasionally have a theme. This week it was to create a self-portrait. I created this in the software Studio Artist. I brought my photo in as the source, used a plain white background and painted with a litho brush. I then brought the image into Photoshop to tweek.
Have you ever made a self portrait? I was feeling pretty resistant doing it, but once I got into it, it was fun. I also think it says more about me than I realized while making it. I do feel like two people a lot. Part of me is pretty serious, plain, down to earth. The other part of me dances the salsa around my kitchen and dreams of taking tango lessons in Argentina.
