I have a belief that anyone trying to create anything will inadvertently create self portraits of themselves over and over again without even realising.
I have started working on some pixel art for a new project and was very proud of some alterations I made on my ‘Ding sprite’ from Ego to make him a low level dungeon-crawling adventurer.
I thought that looked pretty good, until my girlfriend noticed the following things:
1) That’s probably closer to my actual hair colour anyway.
2) I appear to be wearing that particular tee-shirt today.
Right down to the V-neck.
Score one for extra confidence in a theory, lose one for falling back into artistic self-insertion habits.
