Should I continue arting, or be a socially enept hobo for the rest of my life?
>Should I continue arting
did someone give u the impression you shouldn't?
> socially enept hobo for the rest of my life?
art/job, do both?
head is massive because you haven't accounted for the camera distortion, and the outstretched arm makes it obvious the painting is based on some lame selfie.
if it's a self-portrait, why are you using a photograph at all? set up a mirror and paint your face from life.
Well then your teacher gets the blame for being retarded.
Even still, you could have used a much better photo. the camera needs to be much further from the face to prevent distortion. have someone else take the photo, and having some background, narrative, or hint of emotion couldn't hurt either.

Get a job, do art as a hobby. Move to art in 5 years when you get gut and don't have career.
I seriously don't understand people that want to be designers/illustrators from the get go without any other skills than loomis.
It's good for a first attempt.
The colours are a bit mushy, the blonde , reds and brown. a bit of contrast would have helped.
The composition is mad, why cut off the top of your head? was your mirror too small?
Think I have a chance at game art? 1St attempt with acrylics.
I laze around all day, it's also a waste of time and money. What I did is a real waste, while what you did was keep learning by each brush stroke. They said it's a waste because they think it can't generate money.
its a waste if you dont learn to SEE or construct things properly. If you knew how to sketch and see the shapes of your face correctly then this would have been a close to perfect looking painting. Its great for a first attempt but has obvious shortcomings due to lack of skill.
Don't call it "arting". Respect art and it'll respect your efforts over time.
Keep drawing and painting. Art is a jealous god, and if you don't keep trying to satisfy this god, you will be doomed to never knowing your true self.
Hey, OP, this is my selfportrait
