Self Portrait--Andy Warhol by Melaninny Self Portrait--Andy Warhol by Melaninny
For my drawing class last semester we did a self portrait a week in different styles. ^^

This is week 9! Andy Warhol.
I had a lot of trouble with this one (this is actually my second attempt). It was difficult because we were drawing, but Andy Warhol worked with screen prints of photographs. I'm not so great at drawing photorealistically (tips are appreciated!), especially in this style.

I actually like the result, but my teacher still didn't think it was Andy Warhol enough and I kind of agree.
Also I thought adding the hand in was cheesy. = P

At least you didn't do the fuckin' 4 things in 4 color palletes thing, A++++ for that. Or soup cans. The world is tired of Warhol.

Haha. I totally agree, I don't think it's a style I would do if it wasn't an assignment.
