New Art: Auto Retrrato en Kahlo

A while back I had to do a self portrait for my Spanish class in the style of one of four Latin American artists: Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dali, Goya, or Picasso. Frida's art stood out to me the most, and I already had ideas begin forming when I heard the nature of the assignment. I'm quite happy with how it turned out, although I managed to get a smudge of ink on the face which is frustrating. As for much of my art, the background is scrapbook paper and everything else is drawn in marker (Copics)
I'm most happy with how the flowers turned out, since I was positive that they would end up ghastly, or looking like a six year old had drawn them. Surprisingly though, they didn't~
I do quite enjoy making self portraits; I ought to do more of them, though perhaps in my own style (though I did enjoy the inspiration Kahlo's art gave me)
I hope you readers enjoy the art~
