I don't normally post my art on JGO, but this picture was exceptional, see, I really, really out did myself. So I figured I would share this one.
(It's based on a pic from a t-shirt: I'm not that good enough yet to come up with something this good on my own)
Many great artists have a self portrait of some kind or another, and, well, I'm not great, but I figured I should have a self portrait...of some kind.
I really don't know how I came up with this idea, but it seemed like the best way to portray me: I drew three figures: an Elvish warrior (The LoTR fan, who does have the heart of a struggling young warrior), a superhero (The Marvel fan, who believes in justice and always doing what's right, no matter the cost) and a nerd (The LoTR fan and the Marvel fan, and the all around OK kid, who is an introvert artist).
It's a simple pic; I could have made it a lot cooler, if I'd wanted to. But I didn't want too, I wanted it plain and simple, like me.
(For the record, the one on the far right is how I actually dress)
(The pic looks better in person)

"Marry, sir, they have committed false report; moreover, they have spoken untruths; secondarily,
they are slanders; sixth and lastly, they have belied a lady; thirdly, they have verified unjust things; and, to conclude, they are lying knaves. " (Dogberry, Much Ado About Nothing.)
Best. Line. Ever.
Well, one of them.

It' official. ...Like, more official than before. So, we all knew I was a nerd, but now, now I actually have glasses. It's official.
Yes, I wear superhero T-Shirts, I love Spider-Man, all of my favorite movies (Save LoTR) are by Marvel, I really don't do well in social environments, I actually enjoy reading Shakespeare, all three of my friends are nerds/geeks (So, I do have more than three....almost.), and I've seen almost every episode of 'Star Trek: The Next Generation,'. The glasses are just the icing on the cake.
You don't have to worry about me, I'm not going blind or anything; I'm just a wee but farsighted, and yes, an official nerd.

I have this piece of paper that I use whenever I'm drawing. I put it behind whatever piece of paper I'm drawing on, so if my markers go off the page, they get on it and not on something important. I use it to see what color a marker is, or how two colors work together, or to scribble on if my pen isn't working. I use it for all kinds of things. It's covered with lots of little faces, and this is one of my favorites. 8)
Have a great week,
