Sinister Self-Portrait Diagram by PandaKong
Sinister Self-Portrait Diagram
I'm taking a life drawing class my teacher wanted us to either be really harsh for our self-portraits or to make something very interesting. Sooo, I have a life drawing book and it had a diagram of the proportions of the face relative to the eyes. I decided to do that but with my own visage.

My classmates and teacher encouraged me to add more eyes, so you get a cyclops one. Also since it was a diagram they said formulas and equations would be good for the background. The math-y stuff in the background all has to do with phi and the golden ratio. Also, a bit of equilateral triangle stuff. My handwriting is pretty messy so that adds to the might-be-a-serial-killer aspect. The background reminds me of a blackboard which I find compelling in a way.

I worked so long on this and it paid off. I'm proud of it, but it is a lot creepier than me personally...

I'm actually very proud of my progress so far. The subject matter actually deals with proportions, but a bit more creepy, which although doesn't fit my personality, it fits Halloween.
Are you all confused as I am about this Watch Feed?
dA looks like a timeline... like all the other social networking sites.

Stop that.

(But also, I will decide what new art to post on here once I get more free time / decide when I am 100% done with any pieces and can get a good scan or photo)

I just started taking a life drawing class. So basically, yes, figure drawing! Live nude models. The first day was pretty fun but the last couple have been a bit stressful. We'll do one minute gesture drawings as warm-ups and I won't finish. I think I've been psyching myself out, but I'm excited for the rest of the semester.

I haven't really decided what I'll be posting to dA, but for now I have the work that I at least kind of like over here: Amanda's Sketch Blog

I'm a student and sometimes I take art-related classes.
