7202012 Self portrait by KenDraw 7202012 Self portrait by KenDraw
MAN- This painting is close to a month or two old! I lost track! I Did this as a self portrait for my painting class, we were supposed to do an image that showed what represented or was symbolic/important to you.

SOOOO I did a lil of both.

Each thing shown in this has symbolism behind it, Most of which are from dreams! Some are just what I love- but I'm sure that one is obvious- HAH.

ANYWHO! I hope you guys dig! I would have posted this sooner but the best photo capturing device I have on hand is my cellphone! (So until I get somethin' better, this is all I got!) And since the image is 16"X20"...



I'm taking Commissions!:star:

Aw man, I was hoping you'd get around to submitting this! :'D
I know I've already told you how much I admire this, but I still think it's fantastic that you're so advanced in almost every medium.
THAT AND THIS IS JUST A COOL PICTURE ALL IN ALL.

Oh good god, I love every bit of this. Every color and shade blends together so perfectly and I loe how the characters look in the pic. Like they seem to move.

It looks wonderful, Kenny.

Thanks Caylee! Haha in that case, maybe I'll post more of my paintings I've done!
I used oils! I haven't really gotten my hands on acrylics, but I know they don't blend into each other as much as oils dooo~
And Thank ya! The layout and the imagery is actually based on a couple of dreams I've had, I'm glad ya dig it!

Wow! Oils? I've played with those once upon a time but I decided I don't like them because they take forever to dry. That's my only complaint, but they do last forever (or should I say a very long time) and (like you've said) they blend well and are shiny. :D
You do a nice job with them~ :)
