Saturday Squares

Self Portrait - Noodler's Ink

Another quick self portrait and another quick Christmas card design.

Card Design - Watercolour, Ink and coloured pencil

Nice portrait! Not stressed like the others. I like the change in pose. Though portrait eyes are supposed to be a tad larger than in real life, these could be a tad smaller. Your emphasis on the eyes, though, show the most important part of a portrait to me. I always make my upper and lower lid areas too round which does not work at all.

Your Christmas card design is really cute and fun.

I agree on the stress level the eyes are always great.

I'm really drawn to this portrait. It seems very personal to me...though most are!

Dave said...

You're so well organized...Christmas cards already! How do you manage to draw yourself smoking? Cigarette in one hand and pen in the other? :)

Nicely done, both of them!

Anita Davies said...

Thanks Jenny. Yes, I always make the eyes larger when I draw me...I think it's because I like them about myself.

Thanks Lorraine, yes, much less stressed.

Thanks Suzanne. I see this as quite personal too, like I dropped my guard for a moment?

Sadly Dave, I have learned to do almost anything with a cigarette in my hand. TUT!

Thanks Marie and Anita.

Thanks Serena...It's a fascinating subject to focus on oneself.

Thanx Phthalo
