    Auto-portrait as Degas

    ... the fantasy is in having dark hair again, hehe ... iPhone sketch, iPad chalk work, AR Pro colorizing ...

    This is a real stunner. You got a fantastically "aged" oil autoritratto (self-portrait)! I don't know how You exactly did it, especially this smokey appearance, but I'm literally in awe in front of such an outcome!

    Sadly, I also don't know how I did it ... I don't have any particular method, I just stop when things look right, or when I've run out of solutions for why things don't look right ...

    The background I think was a result of the transformation of a neutral high-keyed bucket wash on the iPhone, that eventually got toned down on the iPad and in AR Pro through the Adjust Layers Tool ... Things look so much darker on the iPad ...

    Thanks ... I have no hope of ever being able to paint as Degas did, or of looking French, so this is the result, hehe ...
