This is something I jokingly refer to as a self-portrait of my own ass. That was never the intent, however. The final product, with the studded belt, dark-washed blue jeans, and black shirt riding up ended looking a lot like well.. my ass. At the time.

I need to stop trying to incorporate text into my paintings because it never looks as good as I hope it will. A collage-type approach may have worked better here.
On the other hand, I'm quite happy with the three-dimensional effect on the belt. Achieving this was a rather elementary lesson in geometry and shading, but a lesson greatly needed.
