I have a particular hatred towards self portraiture. For one i am not particularly interested in capturing myself ( heck i am stuck with myself on the daily basis ) and for two, for some obscure reason in all my attempts i come out looking like a man and not very attractive one.
This time i was forced to do a self portrait for a scholarship application and after several attempts i think i managed to come up with a rather clever and creative solution to my problem.
Its started with this photo:
and progressed to here with charcoal:
and ended up looking like this after i shoved it into photoshop
