New self-portrait. Pencil, then Photoshop.
I'm not supposed to be leaning on anything and I hate that it looks like I am.

Amazing!! The flat patterns and the negative space look amazing and it makes the coloring and shading of the skin really pop :)

wow i really like this. Nice emphasis on the skin and your face which all looks amazing btw :blushes:
I like the way you paint, and this overall concept looks really nice, the blank flat white against the 3d realistic-ish skin.
I just like the whole picture :+fav:

I love the way you used the white space and the same pattern for the background and the tie; the result is very interesting and pleasing to the eye. :)

It does look like you're leaning on something. But it's still excellent.

Great! Technique is bueno, and the positive (or is it negative) space works really well. Nice decision with the arm, diagonal and no tangents.

That is a beautiful self portrait and the shirt being the negative space has a very appealing effect. Amazing work.
