In painting class we are doing self-portraits! I love myself, so I love doing them! BUt I decided to make a series of science fiction self portrait for myself, using themes from all my favorite science fiction movies, shows, and books.

They are all 8inches square, and painted with acrylics! I gridded all the pictures, thats why they actually look like me. Wink

Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy

X Files
Title: I Want To Believe


Fifth Element
Title: Ecto Gamat

This is the start of my third one. Since I'e taken this picture I've mixed sand, paint, and glue together to make a sandstone wall as the backgroud, and I've started carving symbols out of it!!

I'm planning on working on a Doctor Who one next, and I've got ideas for Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate, Total Recal, Ender's Game, and Men In Black, so far. I was also thinking about doing non sci fi themed ones with Harry POtter, Spongebob, Army of Darkness/Evil Dead, and Phineas and Ferb!

What do you think?

Awwwesome.  You look ridiculously cool in the first painting. I think that one is for sure my favourite-- partly because of the homage to an epic saga, but I think it's also the best-executed of the three. But your sci-fi concept is pretty wonderful. I wish I had the patience for something like that.

Yes, i think it is the best so far as well! My teacher is submiting it into an art show, and I'm kind of sad because now i can't stare at it for hours like I used too! Wink

Very nice.  I hope you made some kind of copy of it, for your portfolio.  They're all great.  I can't wait to see the third one finished and the rest of the series.
