Wow, its amazing how one picture could have such a powerful meaning. I feel you, but you cant call yourself an artist if your completely sane ha. But I have to disagree on one thing, I think "doing the right thing even when its tough" makes you a true man. It about having heart. If you say confidence, that man could potentially become a serial killer, and serial killers are heartless bastards. Moving on..
First off, im diggin the hair. Those lines you used to show detail have an interesting color, its a bit mesmerizing actually. The way you made both eyes slightly different sizes to give it a more human feel is cool too. I like your style. From the color to drawing techniques to philosophy, I gotta say this appeals to me.
Dope work dude. and I see that gas mask haha.
i feel you on your comment, it is about heart. Words can be difficult because "we" as individuals put our own personal experiences behind things, even words. So confidence is a positive trait , like loving yourself. That's confidence in one's self. As for the killer thing, i get you man, but that to me feels more like someone lacking confidence and filling in a hole. this is definitely a HUGE thing to talk about and typing text creates issues with understanding, but we are on a similar page.
Thanks my dude! I don't draw "real" people much, let alone draw myself but this was a great experiment. plus drawing in Flash as opposed to Illustrator. and for real, i think we could put heads together on some big works.
