    Art exercise - post your picture and we'll all draw your portrait in any style we like. Anything goes, from stick figures to cartoons, to poster art, to steampunk, to Old Master portraits in richly gilded frames. With the depth of talent and humour evident here, and the omnipresent "Don't Be An Arsehole" principle in force, I think we can keep the lurkers entertained.

    So I don't mark myself as a gigantic wanker who just wants everyone to draw pictures of him for free, I'll hold back posting my own mugshot until the thread reaches its third page.

    If we post our own can we draw it too? Or is that too narcissistic?

    Yeah, feel free to draw your own portrait if you want to post a picture of yourself.

    Okay, I'll bite:

    It's as accurate as any pic I have at hand - I dress in black, my hair does tend to lay like that, and my beard actually extends along the jawline and up, only it's all gray. And I hardly ever smile in a public restroom....

    i would open it up to: take a picture from the self-portrait thread and draw it. for convenience's sake.

    Although, A) Perhaps not everyone there wants to be Remade/Remodeled, and B) Using only pictures posted here should make it easier to compare the actual photo and the art piece...
    Here's me...

    @allana - Nope. Let's keep it strictly to pictures posted here.

    That is, without a doubt, the greatest shirt ever.

    Here's me...don't expect me to draw though. I have neither the talent nor the patience.

    Try not to dwell on the eyebrows - I know they need a damn good plucking...

    i proposed such a thing. and mark does bring up some good points about how difficult it could be. i still think it'd be fun though.

    that picture of kitsune is win.

    @frequentcontributor, hope you like it.

    @greasemonkey: Interesting choice when your subject is actually an atheist....
