Self-Portrait Project!

Thanks to Amanda Blanchette's inspiration on drawing ourselves as Street Fighter Characters, I'm making a list that I'll be referring back to that involves even more fun! And I absolutely encourage anyone that reads this blog to do it too.

The idea is to illustrate yourself (or a friend if you so wish) in theme with anything off the list. Or come up with your own! You can even combine themes! And then you'll have a whole bunch of pictures of fun.

It's mostly just meant to inspire or use as a warm up. It's also great practice for character design - some are intended to coerce a bit of research. Using yourself as the subject adds an aspect of comfort so concentrating solely on the theme is easier.

I'll probably be adding to this list as time passes (if you have any unique suggestions, I'll gladly take them!) I also don't expect to finish the entire list, but we'll see how far I get. (:

from each continent (when drawing yourself from the continent you are from, be specific! For example, I live in Maine but I was born in Arizona, so I'd do a southwestern-theme!)
