First submission this year, also the first in a really long time here on deviantart, I'm sorry.

This is based on a quirky self-portrait we were tasked with during a recent drawing course. benjaminforsell.tumblr.com/ima…
I didn't think much of the drawing itself as it was done with a bad pen on bad paper, so yesterday I opened it up in photoshop because I still wanted to do something with it.
This is what I ended up with and I must say that I quite like it. I have a thing for certain ambiences that evoke a certain emotional response in me but it's something I find hard to put my finger on. This time however, I feel successful, this is important to me as an artist.

Haha awesome expression! :XD: and this came out really well for 'bad pen + bad paper' with a touch of photoshop! Your art has grown so much over the years, so much that it's hard to believe you were the same artist back then. wow XD and your human portraits are fantastic :D have you thought of opening commissions on DA before?
Either way, good work! It's nice to see you being active around here again :)

Thanks for the kind words Tara!
The thought of doing commissions here has crossed my mind, especially now that they've made it more profitable for the artist. I just haven't bothered to familiarize myself with PayPal yet...

Oh yes, PayPal is a must need... it took me a while before I could get one! (Because NZ wasn't compatible for some time) not sure about Finland, but yeah it would be good if you could :-D

Yeah it's compatible here, my friend made an account in order to buy a multitap for the original Playstation. Took Crash Team Racing to a whole new level.

Great work. I really like that raw sketchy look you got. Outstanding job on the shadows and lighting. :)
