Abstract Self Portrait
I was struggling to find a way to abstract myself. After many different ideas, I decided to blow my head up. It seems to have worked alright.
I started first by drawing a face, and slowly obscuring it with the removal of skin. As you can see, there still is a bit of a facial base in the blood. Also, as the throat is pulling apart, the trachea within is exposed.
With the help of a friend, the colors for the background were carefully chosen. For whatever reason, we as humans are naturally disturbed by such a bright tone of yellow, (which is often associated with phlegm).
This piece took about 4 hours total to finish.
