Hello, my name is Marta, I'm new in this comunity. Here is my submission for the self-portrait challenge. I decided to paint full lenght portrait in classicism inspiration. I made it in Corel Painter using brushes that imitates oil paint. Doing self-portrait I couldn't miss my two beloved budgies :)
Hi everyone! I'm Priscilla but you can call me Allicsirpart! Here is my self portrait submission for the proko/slew challenge! I used acrylic paint and paint markers on canvas, the canvas size is 20x30cm. I tried to incorporate my 2D-like artstyle with a little bit more realism. Hope you enjoy!
Hi everyone. My name is Corey. I’m a life long artist but needed an excuse to paint again. This contest gave me a chance to try some new things like working with an actual color palette. The hand is a little wonky but atleast my mustache is on point. This is acrylic on canvas.

That's it I'm calling it done! Based off a Princess Mononoke cosplay I wore to work for a Halloween costume competition (I won the competition but only 5 people at work knew who Princess Mononoke was). Painted with oil paint. Constructive criticism on anything, including oil painting, composition, light and shadow, clothing folds, face planes and anatomy, appreciated! I feel like I have a flat face that doesn't quite lend itself to planes very well. Good luck everyone!
Here's my final submission. Tried to keep the technique as traditional as possible ;) Good luck everyone!
This was an awesome challenge! The melting roses decorating the mirror represent my passionate but withering ambitions, while my skeleton reflection pressures me to realize these dreams before it's too late!

Thanks for putting up the challenge! Here is an updated image of my submission. I was able to varnish and take better photos without all the glare.
Hello! This is my first time entering a Proko challenge. Really liked the challenge but saw it a little too late. Would love to hear what you think! :)
Here's my entry: "Calming The Chaos In My Mind" I used oil color with pallet knife for the color, and titus ballpen for the details.

This is just meant to be a study before I do the main thing. Lol I look like an evil psychotic polka dot clown. If I could please have constructive criticism on anatomy, face planes, light and shadow and shape design. I'm aware the shading is messy as this was meant to be a quick study before the main event. Graphite pencil on cartridge paper.

The series I worked on this year is called Reclamation, and speaks to the idealisation of the female body. As recognised artists have predominantly been men, inspired by the female body and therefore projecting their gaze onto it, I believe it is important for more women to be recognised as Artists and for them to define their own bodies. La Femme - always mystified, elegant, sexy, the artist's muse and effortlessly envoutante - is almost stripped of her humanity and deified. Women are first and foremost human beings, who shit smell laugh cry fight jump run fall travel speak read eat play in other words live. And their bodies are first and foremost vehicles for them to experience life, and as such they stretch bend bloat change and adapt. In this series, I aim to reclaim my (female) body for what it is: a vehicle of life. Neither an object of desire nor mystical femininity, simply a vessel which allows me to exist in 3D and try out the "human experience". Nothing less, nothing more. https://www.noemicassin.com/work/reclamation

Hello, I know that the challenge is about self-portraits in color, but I'm primarily an inker, so I decided to post my pen and ink drawings. I also include a quick painting study of my reflection in the mirror.
