disconnection from immediate reality by KimDingwall disconnection from immediate reality by KimDingwall
Narcissism in the genre of fantasy.
This picture makes me feel weird.
It was so much more difficult than I first thought it would be -_- The last time I drew my own face I was 12!
Ah, and I turned out kind of androgynous. This face is actually that of a female. My sister does sometimes call me a little boy (and then sings Suit Yourself by the Shout Out Louds).

But!!! I finished it in time for :iconrealm-of-daydreamers:'s dreamer's self portrait competition!! YEY! :la:

It might occur that maybe, perhaps, possibly, when I go for walks through forests I pretend to be an adventurer. It was cute when I was 8, but now I'm 22 >_> <_< >_>

If you'd like to see the process, you can only see the beginning. I filmed the first half: youtu.be/liZgDnLlXsY then I got mad :x

Edit: little things that were annoying. Also, added hair (I'm a girl, I promise.)

impressive expression of the drawing, is a masterpiece. It reminds me of the action of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" where soldiers arrive off the coast of the island and are shot and death, and the commander for a moment remains silent, a silence that meant death and sorrow around what I like about your drawing is that conveys a sense of "silence" even in the midst of a tragic moment, I congratulate you, the few who can reach the heart of a person.

Sorry for my proor english, a hug from Argentina.

Damn this is really good! I love everything about it, from the little nicks you gave his skin here and there, to the rain drops falling against his body and dripping down. @_@

Androgynous paintings are impressive, it makes her look as though she is purely and simply a warrior, no need to identify her as male or female, though the knowledge she is female makes her badass XD the runes on her fingers give me shivers, great eyes O.O

(You can't be a fantasy adventurer with all the death and fights when your 8, and besides, why do you think Stan Lee is still an actor/writer? ;D)

Yay for a fellow androgynous she-beast. xD I could tell you were a girl, though. I think I enjoy your commentary on it almost as much as the painting itself. The painting is quite amazing. :love:

I thought "oh, is this a medeival 'Mulan' type of character?" because I could see she's a girl-
Then I read the description and realized it was a self portrait. Lovely job!
