The girl with the braid by shideh The girl with the braid by shideh
It was time for a new self portrait, the previous one from 2009 has been bugging me for a long time. This one has better proportions and more likeness! It's based on a photo from my birthday. I recently learned how make a fishbone braid on my own hair, so I'm really happy! This is also the first time I paint one, and I enjoyed it a lot.

Here's the old one:
