Final assignment for Painting class.

It's oil on canvas, and if the top photo gives any general idea how big it's a 2'x3' canvas.

We were supposed to make a collage centered around either ourselves or some idea in pop culture, and I chose to make a self-portrait of sorts. It was ok to do something a bit simple because we didn't have a whole lot of time to get them done.

There were some things I was planning to add on originally, but there's no way I'd be able to include them before it's due tomorrow. We technically have two hours of class time because it's a 2 hour final exam period, so I might make some more adjustments to it if my professor thinks it needs them. He says accuracy isn't as important; He's grading it based on how it stands as a painting.

So yeah! this is what has been contributing to my lack of free time! Oh, and that landscape's at the studio though, so I'll post a pic of it after I get it back (I'm more proud of that one lol).
Still have another few finals coming up this week, and then I'll get caught up with my inbox ^.^

The background is the back of a Yugioh card. Yugioh/GX/5D's is my biggest obsession (but I'm sure you all know that already, lol)
