Its me by JohnPowell Its me by JohnPowell
well I've been up all night, started rendering this yesterday at about 8PM and its now 8-something-AM so I'm spent.

I'm no sort of portrait artist and this is actually the 1st real attempt at a self portrait so i hope you all dig it.

I realize this is an older work, but it's totally awesome! I can see your influences (in a good way) and it really inspires me.

Plus you're a cutie-butt


(and no that wasn't a creepy thing for a stranger to say at all, why would you think that? >_> ).

I had close to the same idea with the cloud hovering above my head, I did not finish it yet but now everybody will think I copied you :D

Although the actual portrait doesn't have that much reaction/ expression, you were able to create emotion through your color so kudos to you! :)

I really enjoy the piece.

I have to tell you that your hair looks a bit Butch Patrick-ish though. Which made me chuckle a little, but I think it adds to the visual character.

I kind of figured your icon was a self portrait, too. This is rad, though, too. Everyone should have graphic lightning bolts all the time.

I was up all night and it kind of felt like the right thing to title it at the time.

haha, yeah im rather far from being anything emo in "real life" i suppose. But ive always wondered what i would look like with jet black hair, girl pants, and huge shoes.
