Close But No Cigar Young Grasshopper

(If you haven't voted yet read about it here and then go here to support Prince-y in his quest for Monster Hunter domination! You only have until Monday to cast your vote, so the sooner the better! Please and Thank you so much, so very much to those of you who have already voted! We both really appreciate it!)

I spent all weekend on my Master Imitation for my drawing II class. We were supposed to pick an artist and draw a figure in their style. 

So since I did my presentation on Chuck Close, I figured I might as well imitate his style since I didn't really want to do any of the other artists. 

Chuck Close's work looks like this: 

So my self portrait had to be in a similar style. It looks easy enough, right? But it take for freaking ever!

Here's what I came up with:

My teacher told me to draw a grid and go from there. So that's basically what I did. Then I used different colors and geometric shapes to build my figure. 

It definitely looks better from farther away than it does close up, but that's all in the style. 

Prince Charming says he can tell it's based off of me. But I never think anything I do really looks like me. At all. 

What do you think?

  1. Like I said, if we were in a classroom of people and had to pick out who's portraits were whose, I'd be able to tell this was you.

    Also, thanks for the further Monster Hunter support! :D
