Self Portrait

I've brought up design forums before, and my status as a bit of a post whore, but they have a monthly avatar theme. January was a self portrait. Despite having done a portrait in the past, I decided to go back to the same photo set and do another.

Last time did it using the pen tool in Illy and then just block coloured the details, having got a tablet for my birthday and not used it anything like enough I decided to do this by hand. Pencil tool in Illy for the outline and then the Shop for colour. Seriously I didn't use the fill tool once!

Some of the colours aren't perfect, but I tried to sample the colours from the photo rather than making them up.



OK, yes I ignored my tattoos.

This one goes out to Hulk Hogan!
