Self portrait! I've actually never ever done a serious self portrait. It's always been cartoony versions of me. Somehow I find it really scary to draw myself. I want it to look good but it has to be accurate and I don't want to portray myself like something I'm not. Well, I made some exceptions...

I've drawn girls with alternative styles, messy hair and piercings for as long as I can remember. Despite this I've always considered myself too "boring" to be able to look like that myself. Well, fuck that! This portrait is me + all the stuff I want to do. Piercings and the partially turquoise hair. It's a look I love, so why shouldn't I be allowed to get it for myself? No reason at all! Now is the time. :3

Is it just me or is Sweet Autumn basically you?

It's not just you XD Lots of people have commented on this and I guess it's sort of true. I wrote her voice acting script just as I would have talked if I were I jumping rocket launcher wielding core guardian. Her character design is a mix of all the things I love and wven though she's not at all meant to be based on me she just has all the things I'd love to have. You could say I copy her style rather than the other way around :3

Actually, I think it would look amazing. I've had my hair in a long ponytail before and all of it was dyed a bluish sea green, haha. It was actually kinda fun. I'm aiming to get my ponytail back, personally. I miss it.

But I digress! It's interesting to see a self-portrait (and I suck at them, so you'll never see one from me). And you're not "too boring", you're a Casual Friday kinda gal, haha! I say do whatever makes you happy!

I think I'm pretty much of a punk/grunge/skate/weird person when it comes to style :P I've just gone more and more "safe" these recent years. No idea why. Too much influence from people around me maybe that hasn't wanted me to change.

I'm a skater boy. Comfy jeans, skater shoes, and a sarcastic tshirt or a comfy hoodie, and a beanie hat. It's always been my style. Then again, I also like trench coats, even though I look kinda punkish in them. I can also apparently pull off a certain bishounen look, too...long ponytail with bangs, slim reading glasses, a nice shirt and slacks. haha, I just wear what I feel like wearing, and it always has to be comfortable. I've also got three tattoos, and more on the way. It's my body and my look, so I don't let other people influence it unless they think there's a style I'd look good in. If you just be yourself, then you'll be fine. Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

I like it. :) I had turquoise bits in my ginger for awhile. It looked really cool, I thought.
Your style is just too amazing, especially how you draw hair... I can't ever get my hair to look so detailed and pretty...

Hair is one of my favorite bits to paint, so I've practiced a lot. My main focus is to just let it flow. Don't mind gravity too much. Dynamic flow is more important :D

My natural hair colour is light sandy brown (or mousy gray :P) Right now it's dyed in a dark amber tone. Trying to figure out how to get turquoise dye and how bleach would work for pre-colouring >_> It's always a gamble. Well in any case, it would only be half of my hair. There are always hats :P

Lots and lots of hats. XD
(I dyed my brown hair black once. My friends teased me. I'm just keeping it brown now. XD)
