I really liked the value layer and decided to save the black and white version as well... I love the background too!

2019 self portrait (started Dec. 25th 2019 - finished Jan. 6th 2020).
Part of my “Prince of God” personal project where I revisit my self portrait at the end of every year, the first one being “Sariel, Prince of God” from Dec 31st 2018. An intimate, reflective piece to explore my feelings and thoughts on coming out as an agender trans person, the complicated relationship with my body and the way I face the world around me. I wish I could be braver, pose for these face-on instead of hiding. But the world still scares me. I’m still not comfortable. I’m confused and afraid... and I can’t wait to see how these portraits will change in the coming years. The future is bright
