New Art!

I've been wanting to draw an original Twi-lek and decided to combine that with a self portrait. I'm not a self portrait liker (probably why I chose the hybrid), if it's OF myself that is but it's an artists duty to render a portrait of themselves at different points in their life.

The photo reference is a picture taken of me by my friends Peter and Pieter. We spent an all-nighter (11 pm - 6 am) dressing ME up in different costumes and make-up styles (though Twi-lek was not one of them) and taking photos.
We had a blast.

Take it easy on me guys and gals

Here it be...the "totally doesn't look like me" me...
Twi-lek self portrait

Love it - the "doesn't look like me" me!

Oh well, next time I bump into a female twi'lek I'll know what to chat about.
Just about to do an update to go on tomorrow - expect to see the non-self-portrait on the site!

Looks great Leah. I won't get into the reputation of the Twi-leks, we'll just leave it that you look "regal".

hehe, I guess so. You know, Mark, you are my champion! Thank you!

That's the nicest way to put that. Twi'lek reputation is well known.
Thanks!
