Hell yes. Look up acute pulmonary pneumonitis and pulmonary fibrosis. All those atomised solvents...

:bounce: I got around to taking pictures of my paintings. So I smooshed them into a blog post, and am now shamelessly advertising it here!
(The images are huge, so I can't actually post them here. :blush: )

I usually paint nudes so I can't post them here because there are children and parrots present.

self portrait. Done at school with photoshop for an asignment. The face is too long and the eyes are too bright, but the acne is dead on.

Those are pores, or blackheads. I'm not sure.

Disclaimer - I know nothing about art. I can draw chemical structures and geometric figures and that's it.

The eye blood vessels seem too sharp compared to the rest of the picture. Given that the rest of the face looks sort of soft-focus, the blood vessels look very sharp and draw attention to them.

It's a good picture but treating the eyes with the same level of fuzziness as the lips would help (I think).

Edit - Also, you look cute (in a strictly non-predatory way) :shocked: Stop fussing so much over what you look like and enjoy youth while you have it :smile:

A self portrait is usually about what the artist feels about themselves expressed visually. I don't think you're composed solely of acne and blackheads! :shocked: (Plus, who said self portraits have to look like you? Mine is purple!)

I agree with DB, cute! (also non predatory. Though I don't think I'm that much older than you anyway)

Her nose is shorter and her eyes are farther apart. The grumpy expression and the hair are right. The zits are correct sometimes. I must say, that's one of the most realistic whiteheads I think I've ever seen in an artwork.

Her eyes used to be blue, but they've turned turquoise in recent years. I'd think that was really strange if Ubi Dubius hadn't started with blue eyes as a child and had them turn green.

I suppose, but what does the penguin represent? (And does it have anything to do with the gay penguins in the zoos everyone's always on about?) Otherwise, your avvie says that you are a chemist, quite right I do believe.

(Before anything about crabs is mentioned, I would like to point out that Zoidberg is much more like a lobster!)

Well, your avatar suggests you don't fit in with your adopted country, you like sandals and sardines and you pretend to be a doctor. Am I close? (apart from the doctor thing, that was just silly).

Ze pengvin represents my use of free software and my strokable head. Apparently my hair feels like a squirrel's. No, I have no idea how anyone came by that knowledge either.

Also, if I hadn't lost the picture my banana would be back. I may have to redo it.

Adopted country, check.
Sandals, check. (Though not of the Jesus variety)
Sarnines, nar!
Doctoring when I shouldn't be? Check.
if you count yelling "swine flu!" as often as possible as doctoring
3 out of 4, not too shabby.

Perhaps they were referring to the squirrel that is often found in paint brushes? Or they have a hypnotic effect on animals...
