This is a current 3rd term project I'm working on currently. This is suppose to be a self portrait from reference. I chose to use a year old image of me and my son that my wife took candidly. I'll update the finish after I give it about 4-6 more hours (23 hrs so far 'cause I'm slow!). [I updated the image Feb 1, 2006]

My mom was a great sport to sit for the original reference photographs I took in preparation for this project. I skewed and distorted the original picture in Photoshop and painted according to those changes (i.e. the longer-than-possible neck).
