How do you draw a portrait of a shapeshifter?

This way seemed to work pretty well.

Drawn with Prismacolor pens, colored with Photoshop. Comments and critique are always appreciated.

Huh. This is definitely quite interesting...different segments of your personality?

Infervorous

This is very cool.

This is nicely different and intersting. Much more clever than a regular TF work. Symbolic of some of the many options somone could become!

I love this! I like how segmented it is with the panels, yet still very coherent and unified. It seems very personal.

Inali

in all well done. you not only grasped the 3 layers of dimension, but made a collaborative of your own work. well done! =^v^=

Wildly clever!

I love pieces that are abstract in concept such as this! This is fantastic work, and I must compliment you on doing this such a thing, since this is the first time I've seen anyone do something like this here! Also, the antenna on the left side of her head? Made my day. Insects represent!

Definitely one of the more "artistic" pieces I've seen lately, at least in the sense that "Art" means "self-expression". You did a grand job of portraying a shapeshifter's most noteworthy trait, in a way that catches the viewer's eye and makes them think. I would be proud to make such a piece myself. :)

Extremely creative, there isn't much better I can say that's already been said, but, well done. :)

NachtderWolf

this is brilliant ♥♥♥

Gfox

Interesting concept, and nice use of the medium by having parts seem to stick out of the panels.

Nice conceit, well rendered! 7@=e

Everything to be said seems to be said, but I think it is more of a self expression piece than what one normally sees. I like it.

Chrysalis, you're the best, I'm so glad you're around. ^^

this definitely is a VERY good portrait of a shapeshifter. you made it so we see the aspects of the shifting form with the eyes of the shifter, yet in such a way that we still know ourselves. well done.
