Self portrait Final
So, I finished the self portrait, and I was completely stoked on how it came out. I bought some Matte finish prismacolor fixative and sprayed it with a light coat to help protect the drawing. I left it outside to dry in the garage, and when I came back the image had a white, waxy film on it that totally destroyed all the value. I was SOOOOO bummed. Especially on the shirt area, because that was where the film seemed to do the most damage.
Ive never had fixative leave a film like this before, so Im not sure if maybe it was the brand (Which I had never used before).
If you look good you can see where I was scratching off the film.
Oh well, just means I should start something new!!!!
