Sliver of a Glimpse - 1 by beleequa Sliver of a Glimpse - 1 by beleequa
Ok, I dont know why this keeps deleting my comments on this piece, so here we go:

-Cheap acrylic paint
-1 week over the summer
-Based on Chuck Close's style
-1" squares
-Bottom half still not really finished looking
-REQUIRED self portrait
-4' by 1.5' including the unshown bottom half

This piece was a lot of fun to make, but I had to rush it at the end, so it didnt exactly turn out how I wanted. But for the most part, I'm happy with the top half. =)

Hope you like it!

Ooo I love this. I'm studying Chuck Close, but I don't really like his work, but I love his style. This was great inspiration to actually do a Chuck Close style work.
LOVE IT
Thanks!

This is really cool.. almost a pixellated mosaic look. The red under the eye is a little loud though.
I really love this~
