View Full Version : self portrait

02-13-2014, 02:23 AM
The gallery ask me to do a self portrait and a portrait of a man that paints portraits there. I thought they was joking but then all show up with they portraits painting and I had nothing :o
Anyway I did paint this because of it and also someone there saw my image I did in blacklights . yes that is me with blacklight paint on and all. anyway she say I could not paint that as it would be too hard to paint.
She saw the painting and laugh and say I did a good job on it.:thumbsup:

My photo of the painting is not the best . I did shoot it in raw but I could not put it in photoshop. I even try downloading the converter but it did not work. guess I have to get a newer photoshop. I read that on the net. I did fix it right in the camera but I can not save it in a jpeg.:eek:

c&c is welcome

yes I ate paint.:eek: But I spit it out. Have a very bad taste.:o The taste was in my mouth for a few hours even thought I ate something to get rid of the taste.

Yes the bottom image is my ref. photo. I use paint that glows in black light. I also find out that Vaseline, so that why the left side is blue and glowing. The right side is some white chalk that glows in the black light. On my lips I put Vaseline on and I had sand that I put orange paint that glows in the black light and let it dry and then I crumb it up fine and I kissed the sand. I used a timer and got in front of the camera and it took my image. wish I used more blacklights :o

this is what happens when you bore out of your mind and left to your own devices.
I showed photo the photos but no one cared. :o some say they never saw anything like it. Even the ones from the hippy of the 60's . Oh well I had fun and I had to take a bath too :lol: . it all wash off easy. :lol: :lol: :)
