Yesterday was International Self Portrait Day, so I did this.

I’ve had the idea floating around in my head for a while and thought it would be a good excuse to bust it out and practice in a more realistic style. Look for it on a business card or banner later this year.

Here’s the entire piece. It was done at 11×17 in separate layers for easy editing. The portrait was penciled digitally from photo reference, printed as blue lines, inked by hand and then colored on the Cintiq in Photoshop. The iPhone lineart was made using shape layers.
