Updating my last post on Self-Portrait

I happen to realised that I never posted you the full progress on the making of my self-portrait. I really thought I did, so please forgive me and enjoy the photos of the full progress, from the sketch to the final wash:

Thank you for your patience... :-)

Unfinished Self-Portrait

I just love this description from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

'An unfinished work is creative work that has not been finished...  The term can also refer to ongoing work which could eventually be finished and is distinguishable from "incomplete work", which can be a work that was finished but is no longer in its complete form.'   

This is exacly what I believe happend with my self-portrait. I eventually finished it, and can be distinguished from 'imcomplete work', but somehow I feel is not in its 'complete form'.

Lets remember the original photo I based myself on to interpretate my self-portrait:

Is not perfect, but, hey! Who is looking for perfection?

What do you think?
