another auto portrait by cypherx another auto portrait by cypherx
i'll be headed back to work soon so painting won't be as frequent but here's a attempt at a realism self-portrait where I wanted to explore some brushes I never use but in the end used the ones I was familiar with.

I referenced personal photo and tried to make about as real as my digital work gets without going pixel by pixel.

about 5-6 hours most of which was spent trying to get the sketch and underpainting work done.

the shannen doherty similarity was completely not intentional :/

Was the illusion of a fish lens (photography lens) intentional? I think I am in love with this portrait/ID because of how the perspective appears almost warped. It reminds me of the old time portraits done for lockets. Like with the rest of your paintings I love how you blend the red/orange and purples in your skin tones. Your work is so warm and comfy!

Lovely piece and I love the elongated feel to it almost like looking into a water droplet! Your work is beautiful and the color usages are wonderfully done! Thank you so much for sharing! <3
