Self Portrait

Here's the finish for the self portrait I posted sketches of. Granted, it's been said that bird doesn't look anything like me which I can't really ague with but I like it nonetheless. There's a few new elements to the portrait that weren't in the original sketch, like the way the background transitions from night to morning. There's no distinct symbolism I could point to, that might be a little self-important (but what self-portrait doesn't have that ingredient in some measure), but it's a more intuitive way of portraying the Me I think of when there's a Me thinking about how I think of Me...or somesuch
