This is admittedly a semi-rip-off of Dr. G. I liked the idea a lot, but I thought of this twist on it to find self-portraits by any famous artists in art history and replace the famous artist with a SC selfie. I saw this Rembrandt etching when I visited Amsterdam in 2013 and it blew me away. It looks like a newspaper photograph. It is only about 5”x6” but the detail is amazing. I also used this compo as motivation to try drawing this in order to force myself to really study the cross-hatching used. I tried to imitate it, the best I could, and I did learn a lot in doing so. What he did with a lot of it is entirely counterintuitive. This was so much fun, I thought I would make it a compo suggestion. The WIP reference photo is my own, given away by the reflection of the green light in the upper right corner. Again, apologies to Dr. G.

Rules:
One entry per artist.
Must identify the original artist and piece the entry is based on.
No image loads, all done in SC.
