I must apologize for not being around much lately. I'm having terrible health problems. I also apologize for not commenting too much, I can't really be of much help. i hope my votes mean something though.
I wanted to do something very dramatic on my first self portrait. Maybe to portray a fierce, rugged look, or maybe this is just the way I'm feeling lately. Sorry if is not good enough for portraiture.
Just used one light to bring up a dramatic look and give the skin a more rugged look.
Hope you like it. It's my first one. Critiques welcome and also your modifications.
