Post Your Self Portrait

Photography Prints

originally i had the idea, was that i was going to wear a hat and the goggles. i spent quite some time making the hat and the goggles everything lines up and the magnifiers work on this. and the original intent was to have a victorian suit with my head on it. but as it turned out, i had none in stock. i've been gathering textures but none were suitable.

so i decided i would build my own suit out of metal, i decided on a van helsing jacket, which i found online and used it as a model. at the time i wasn't sure what i would do with the arms, i wanted robot arms, like i was a bounty hunter, but i can't draw. and nothing i did made the arms look like anything, so made the background as i did. my head in the air created this surreal look, and would let me look around easier.

anyway, post your self portraits if you want.

Great thread -- great images!

I really, really like your whimsical, steampunk image, Mike Savad. It's now my favorite of your works.

Disclaimer: The above comment is a true and accurate representation of my appreciation for the aforementioned steampunk image. It is not written to solicit a reciprocally-themed response -- or any response -- from Mike Savad (herein to be referred to as 'the artist'). Nor was the comment written in an attempt to 'ride on the coat-tails' of the artist, or as a not-so-subtle attempt on my part to shout out 'Hey, Mom!' (for which, in any case, a Ouija board would be required). Nor is the above complimentary comment an attempt to increase my own popularity by linking my own name with the work of the artist. I mean no offense by positively commenting on the work of the artist, as he has openly expressed a lack of appreciation for such comments.

So there. In perpetuity.

How's This... A Bit exaggerated in size and proportion...But it's the closest thing I have to a Self Portrait....

very funny disclaimer Wendy, We all know how Mike can care less about comments on his work. So interestingly he makes this thread with his work in the major aspect of it. Hmmm Hypocritical he might be? lol, Ah I figured it out, Mike is especially proud of this one because it is very cool and unique and he is meshed into it and it took a lot to post it with his stubbornness with comments but he couldn't resist because it is so awesome and wanted to share it and make sure people saw it. lol, just playing with you Mike but think I am on to something anyway

Not a self portrait, but a snapshot of me when I worked in Spartacus. The movie, not the TV cable show.

Gosh! I just love all of these! .. I just posted a newer profile pic that takes a good 10 years off my age, but it was a simple photo-booth shot done late at night. I guess when there's time you are all teaching me that I'm going to have to put much more effort into this! Thank you all for sharing. I esp loved the potatoe-chips/remote control and the God and Buddha and belly dancing and Morph. I really dont understand Antonin Gauthier's ... what is that thing? Spartacus is cool and Regina... I expect to see you on a parade float or dancing in the street in down town New Orleans carnival or something! (warm smile). I love the feathers!

Amazingl, amazing work here....I am blown away, lol! Roger, your "God" series had me falling off my chair laughing!

I just did this self-portrait in self-defense after an interviewer ignored my pleas to ONLY do a head shot, and tried to do a "full-figure" photo of me for an article. (and I do mean "full" figured...guffaw! The gods were with me fortunately and her camera battery was completely dead...so I was saved from utter humiliation, but since I had mascara on for the first time in a year, I though perhaps I'd better try and do my own head shot for the article, then proceeded to laugh myself silly trying to get one that did not make me cringe. Below was the one I chose to send for the article.

After seeing all these awesome, creative self-portraits, I can see that I need to get busy and do some more!!!

This image is done in three dimensions... To perceive depth, Red/Cyan filtered 3D glasses are required.

Art Prints

My primary objective in this piece was to create a "surprise" of sorts... We're used to shadows being not only two dimensional, but usually without color. If however you have a transparent object such as the filtered lenses in a pair of 3D glasses, the shadow cast will also reflect these colors. To add an element of surprise meant to accentuate the subject of "3D", and the 3D glasses in particular since over the years they have come to symbolize "3D stereo", I converted the shadow of the 3D glasses from 2D to 3D but this effect can only be viewed through the filtered lenses of a pair of 3D glasses.

In actuality, there are many 3D stereo formats, but the most common by far because of it's ease of use is the anaglyph format which requires the viewer to view the anaglyph image with filtered lenses. These lenses filter the Red and Cyan overlapping channels from two slightly different perspectives which are combined together but the brain perceives the image as having depth!
