Well well well. It that time of year again? Yes, it is. Time for Allie to post another self portrait.

I've been trying to post one every year now for the past three or four years. This would be Allie Katz circa 2006. I don't think I change much from year to year, but who cares? I think it better exhibits how my skills change. So to you nay-sayers: HA!

This was actually done as the final project for my Digital Illustration II class. I think I'll be okay, and it'll be an A in the hole. But wish me luck anyway. A's are good.

To explain this a little: I wanted to integrate flat vector imaging with gradient mesh to get a nifty stylized look. If you aren't familiar with gradient mesh, it is a vector function that allows you to use a grid to place points of colour that blend seamlessly with each other. That's what creates the soft, painted look. The blocky look is flat vector.

Damn though. This was a tedious one. But it sure takes less thought to do myself. After all, I already know what I look like!
