This piece was done for a college art project. The assignment was to reproduce a work of a master or other historical art piece. I chose a self-portrait by Flemish artist Jan van Eyck. I have always been fascinated by works that are exceptionally detailed or hyper-realistic and this piece also touched on my love for drawing the detail, shading and fold of fabric. While this is no where near prefect, I was still exceptionally happy with what I ended up with. The original work was done in oils. I used charcoal and paper for my version.
