Yeah, this will probably get stored in a box never to see the light of day again LOL! Self portraits are extremely difficult. There is this mental stress every time I try it.
“Does this actually look like me?”
“Did I make myself prettier than I really am?”
“Did I focus on my flaws more than I should have?”
“It isn’t that bad…”
“This looks nothing like me…”
“I should trash it and never try again.”
This will still make it into the book, but only as a small biography image.
If you’d like a photo to be drawn and included in the book, be sure to get your submissions in, too.
