Self-Portrait 2 by wytrab8 Self-Portrait 2 by wytrab8
This was done from a photo I took of myself. 2002.

Lovely, just lovely. (No, I mean just lovely.) The awkward posture—distant gaze off to the side, and in the opposite direction—the not quite self-possessed expression, especially with the mouth, kind of distracted, kind of obsessed—the odd setting (is it down in a corner? best spot for a self portrait)—disheveled hair—dress otherwise conventional—the action or tension shown in the left arm, which you can't even really see (nice touch)—it has all the charm of something from "The Ring". Which is what I confused it with on first glance.

The muscle shading is also spot on, which really makes the picture.

I could criticize a few things, but I won't, since I want my comment to have a happy ending.
