Self Portrait by RohanElf Self Portrait by RohanElf
A poor photo of a Self Portrait done for Uni. Based on and inspired by ~ka00te’s ‘Harder Pressed’: [link] and certainly not pulled off as well.

And yes, that is my hair colour.



EDIT: Um... oh my gosh... I am SO SHOCKED that this got a DD! I never thought my work was good enough for one! Um, well wow! Thankyou SO MUCH I'm honoured and shocked and... Thankyou, really, from the bottom of my heart.

As self-portraits go, Self Portrait by ~RohanElf is an interesting departure. ( Suggested by MissingHorcrux and Featured by zeruch )

Used your portrait as an example of a self portrait in my art class. They thought that it was really good, awesome and well done.

Oh, well looking at the link, not original, but I think you pulled it off better than the other artist! Something strikes me as off when I look at theirs...

This is pretty dang amazing. Probably the best self portrait I've seen yet.
I just searched up self portraits on dA because I wanted to look at others', and this one stood out to me so I clicked on it.
Yes, very original at the concept of a face pressed agains glass, and depicted very well here...along with the colors and clothes, not to mention facial expression, it makes for a very successful composition, not to mention a personality statement!

don't you hate it when people comment on your hair (mine is magenta) and they dont like it, well i am an artist and i am legally entitled to do whatever the hell i want with my body or my hair for that matter

Funny you should say that, mine is magenta with an aqua streak atm :) :)

Lots of people think I'm wearing a wig (or at the least, extentions) when they meet me.. I guess the combination of a weird colour and abnormally long (past my hips) is a bit too weird for people to think its my real hair.

I was wondering if I could use your self-portrait to teach kindergarteners what a self-portrait is, and how it can be something silly, not just a bland front view of a face. I think that the concept of being pressed against glass is something that they will love!
