2021 01 SelfPortrait 1069 marco ciavolino post

Norman Rockwell I'm Not.

I've seen others do this I and wanted to try my hand at this iconic self-portrait image. If you want to try it with your hand this follow the link below the photos to download a clean base image and a layed photoshop file and the link I used to create the sketches.

Note that I do not smoke a pipe. This one came from Amazon Prime and will go into my prop bucket.

Here is the original painting.

2021 01 SelfPortrait 1069 marco ciavolino BASE


What better way to kick things off than embracing the beautiful challenge of turning the camera around and pointing it at your beautiful noggin! That's right. The 52Frames mantra is to "embrace imperfection" and there's nothing more perfectly imperfect than your unique self. It's tradition here at 52Frames to start the year with the Self Portrait challenge, because it's a great opportunity to not only introduce yourselves to the community, but to take a plunge into the space of creative vulnerability. Allow yourself to let go of fear and doubt and show us your true, creative selves. A self-portrait can tell a story, portray a nuanced personality, or just be outright wacky, This is your creation and you can decide how you would like to be "seen". Be creative, be vulnerable, be brave. Be You.
