"Self Portrait (as a child)"
This is just a random drawing I did for no reason at all. Well, it was supposed to be for my class "The Lab", but as I was working on it, I found out that it did not fit the assignment's requirements. I wound up having to do a completely different drawing. It made me very sad to abandon this drawing, so I thought I'd finish it this weekend. Yeah... it's based off a photograph of me when I was little.
Somewhere buried in the charcoal is a teeny weeny little dead bug. I squashed it while it was crawling on my paper, and I'm pretty sure it's still stuck in there somewhere. I tried zooming in on photoshop in an attempt to find it, but it completely blends in with the charcoal! Ha, I must have colored over it. :[ That poor bug - what a pathetic way to die. At least it gets to live on in art forever, which I guess isn't so bad. I commend it for being such a convincing charcoal speck. :D
