MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 02-03 ~ Self Portrait ~ Drawing/Coloring!
The second contest of this year is starting and now the spotlights are completely on you! This fortnight's art contest category is Drawing/Coloring with the theme set as Self Portrait! Usually artists work in pieces that will represent themselves, adding their art to their profile! They not always show us their real faces through those pieces, but how they see themselves, using metaphors.

Self Portrait --- a day by Utsune
Comment: Self portrait of my colourful inner self(?) yay. I find colours and identities co-exist, and colours change over time as people change.
I was working on something new for the contest, but was shocked to see that it's already past the deadline! I couldn't finish it in time, so my apologies for something old. It's something I did a while ago for my I.D., so it's my self portrait of sorts. :/ I'll try to complete it on time in the future. Done with PrismaColors (but manipulated on the computer to be black and white). The color version in on my dA if anyone is interested.
