Self Portrait - Limited PaletteI really stink at certain things – artistically speaking. Color theory and I have never been friends. Likenesses too have never been a strong suit for me.

So, when I saw this month’s “Draw Yourself As…” limited palette option, I thought: What the hell? Why not?

I did it in Open Canvas 5.5 and with only one brush (though I did vary the size of the brush). It was a good experiment, I learned a lot, and it also showed me areas where I need to focus in future practice. I’m not terribly thrilled with the results, but as I said – it was a hell of a learning experience.

How about you? What’s the strangest self portrait you ever did?
