Ominous and well-executed..

So you look like a cross between younger versions of Stallone and Paul McCartney? Wonderful tones. The whole "ambiance" of this piece reminds me of a late 60s French movie about the Algerian youth.

Somehow, I really like the "smear" of red to the lips' right. It gives it a mysterious edge. I've scrutinized this piece and I can't find a flaw; great work!

Good stufff

I always found self portraits to be really difficult to do, I had to do em alot in high school and college. I like that you have hints of blue and green in the shading, really brings lushness to the skin tone. I think maybe the right eye feels a little small. Then again, maybe thats just how you look, faces arent always as symmetrical as books have you believe.

The fact you made the portrait so large reminds me of Chuck Close's portraits.

Thanks for the comment buddy.
Yeah, this was my final product at the end of a self portrait project in college so i had done a fair few leading up to it, focusing on getting a good colour palette in mind ready for this one mostly. Can't say i'm a fan of Chuck Close but i can see why the size aspect relates, I focused on artists like Jenny Saville and Lucien Freud mainly.
