Self Portrait--Collage by Melaninny Self Portrait--Collage by Melaninny
For my drawing class last semester we did a self portrait a week in different styles!

Here we have the 6th week's portrait, done in collage.
I'm not sure what I think of this one. I think I liked it better before I tried to fix it. I like some of the textures (most of it was a National Geographic ocean issue xD) but I am not that dark at the same time. : P I guess it's alright for what it is.

Yeah. I used gluesticks so it wasn't *too* messy, but it always takes longer than you want it to. _-_

I have a lot of rubber cementing to look forward to this semester, too. xD

I hate busywork like that. One of many reasons why I'm a terrible student! :D
