Self Portraits: Real guy, Evil Genius, Distinguished Guy

I took several photos of myself yesterday hoping to use one on my website. When I was finished I uploaded them to my computer and picked out a few that I liked. I wanted to name the files so that I could distinguish between them later.  I named each the first thing that came to mind as I looked at the it. These three are Real Guy, Evil Genius and Distinguished Guy—but let’s see if you can guess which one is which.

This is kind of embarrassing…

Taking photos of yourself isn’t as easy as it looks, but if you don’t like the pictures, maybe you at least like my blazer.

Two Little Heads

The title says it—I’ve been working on two little heads. Behold.

Two heads for use in dimensional illustration

These are both for part of my current dimensional illustration project. It is the same character. One is for a portrait taken before his adventure begins, the other is after months at sea and surviving on the pack ice.
I cast resin copies of the original sculpey model to use for different scenes. I’ll be making some little clothes soon.
