Are you feeling exposed? by Raiecha Are you feeling exposed? by Raiecha
Finished my self portrait! Well, when I say 'finished'.. I still have more to add to it, but this is all i'm uploading onto here.

It's basically a piece which describes me, right now as best I could. It basically suggests a confinement inside of my head, where i'd locked everything which would aid/allow me to move forward with my life. Not just with my art, but also with personal situations. Coming to the end of my degree, I finally feel like i'm growing up and moving on - freeing potential and confidence, if you will.

That's what it's about, in a nutshell.

All together this is probably about 30 hours of solid work - It's a pretty big drawing, Segments were drawn on 2 lots of A3 paper. All done with my trusty mechanical pencil and a bit of acrylic paint.
I haven't slept today, I'm very tired.

Really hope you like it, this one is pretty personal to me.
:heart:

Edit; Thank you all for the wonderful comments and faves! I never thought this image would get such a good reception. Thought i'd just say thank you here, rather than clogging up the comments replying to everybody with the same thing.
So, thank you, i'm very, very flattered and will be producing loads more work like this very soon.

EditEDIT; Holy shit a DD. Thank you SO much.
