Sleep Is but a Dream

by tamalasghost in Portraits

A self portrait, trying to capture the glazed over expression I've been wearing lately due to lack of sleep.

      Thank you very much. I should probably post my reference photo so people can tell if it's accurate or not, but that might not do any good, seeing as it was a fuzzy picture taken from a phone, through a dirty mirror.

      But what I found very interesting with this work is that you didn't correct the left eye and the way in which the natural eye glasses had distorted your face along the edge. Most people would have corrected it but you didn't and that makes this piece so much more original and realistic...excellent!!!

      Yeah, and that distortion just proves that I'm blind as a bat without them. People that don't have to look at themselves in glasses everyday probably wouldn't notice that. I just drew what I saw. (I was obviously wearing my glasses when I drew it.)
