Self Portraits

As part of a workshop, I'm doing a self portrait that is supposed to, in a way, be representative of my personal viewpoint with regards to art and illustration. One of the key elements of my art is the juxtaposition of non sequitur elements that, though separate, create a mood and atmosphere because of their combination. It's something that I don't often get to express, but wanted it to be a key part of this self portrait. Here are 2 sketches for this portrait, with and without an actual portrait of me.

Update: Here's the final sketch. I enlarged the bird and simplified my tree design. I think it's added more movement without making it some sort of "action piece." Look forward to a finish soon.
