    Does anyone want to be painted?

    I need practice. I only paint portraits, just post a good photo of your face (and a bit past the shoulders) in this thread and I'll try my best. For optimum lighting make sure there's only one light source that only illuminates your face partially (so I can paint contrast). Though if my painting doesn't turn out well I reserve the right to not post an update about it.

    PS no extra eyes will be added.

    Here you go, kali. If it helps you capture the terroir of the setting, this was on a mango farm.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    I'd love to paint you holding whatever the hell that is!! but I need a better pic (one with better lighting)! do you have one closer up of your face + upper torso with preferably indoor lighting? the kind of lighting i want is the kind that will show the crinkles in your shirt.

    google image "chiaroscuro" - like that.
