Self Portrait Study

One more study, this time of myself, a photo I took myself. It was cropped horribly so I edited it a bit in photoshop sloppily before starting:

Flat colors kind of to just isolate the painting areas...
Some building of the forms with color. Realized the eyes were unaligned and too far appart, doh.

The shadows were a bit harsh so I softened many of the edges, and added some semblance of a background.
Final edits, a bit of texturing, and reduced the eyes, which seemed to me to be too large. Final picture:
