Hi again, that's me up there, reporting with four less wisdom teeth. Peas are magical. They kept down the swelling pretty good and I should be up and running by tomorrow!
Once most of the swelling had died down, I decided to try my hand at a self portrait from life. I think I'll delve back into this one, there are some drawing problems with it and i'm not completely satisfied with how the painting turned out... but learning, learning, learning always.
Edit: 12-17, tried another selfie tonight. Still got them chubby cheeks. Turns out I refuse to sit still.
