Portait with self with.... by meluseena Portait with self with.... by meluseena
Full name: "Portait of self with selportrait with.."

Used a painting by Bronzino as the source for the armour. Fancied myself with myself with myself, in a codpiece to boot. Aibrushed bakcgrounds, textures from cgtextures.com.

I might start taking commissions on these digital-collage portraits. :)


--------------------------------------------------
Technique:
This was created using digital collage technique that involves the layering of many photos and textures and much brushing over, to create a new unique image. Essentially its like good old fashioned collage... only it's done in photoshop, and extensively repainted.

The concept of infinite is simply amazing - I sometimes stay between two mirrors looking at how many myself there are. One could loose oneself.

I've always been intrigued by that pic inside a pic thing. I used to spend hours (literally) thinking about it and how to make it happen. :giggle:

I think you *could* make it happen, you'd just need a fake say deep down inside, someone is holding a pixel-sized portrait with nothing in it, then you take a photo of HIM holding the portrait.. don't know.

Actually, yay digital art, so we can mock this up with no migraines :D

I mean about how it would possible to achieve such an effect without using computers. Like if I took a photo of myself, and then I held that photo while I took the exact expression of the photo, and then you take a photo again. And again and again. Would it start self-perpetuating at some point? Gah. My head hurts now.

Though I must admit my head is smaller (physically, mind!) than that in real life
