My name is George. Online I am known as Ren and Slacky. I'm 24 years old and I struggle with many mental health issues. I am an artist and my muse- the complex emotions of a fractured mind. I struggle witth body dysmorphia, and sense of self in particular. Self portraits help me anchor myself. 

I have not drawn myself in over half a year. Since then my MH has declinded significantly. This self portrait is my purest expression of self. 

This piece is accompanied by an aseprite file with different 'layer notes' as well as a playlist of songs to compliment it. I'm high, suicidal and an artsy bastard.

Thank you everyone. The future is uncertain my friends. At the end of the day, this quiet post lost to the archives of pixel joint will hopefully last much longer than me. <3 More art when I manage to make it-

I'm sorry to hear about your struggles. I have my own, which are completely different from yours but they're struggles all the same. I hope that someday you can overcome them and be happier.

Thanks for sharing this lovely portrait!

Great Job!

I relate as a person that struggles with o.c.d and a.d.d I also face certain challenges with my own psyche.

This peice is excelent, has amazing stylized dithers, and really speaks from internal mood.

Great color progression, this is a F4V3 for me!

I saw this drawing on this site and thought "interesting, I'll check it out in bigger size". I opened and read something like backstory of drawing. I'm sorry that you have so many troubles, dear author, but I'm happy that you decided to share it with us. I hope that you felt at the list a little bit better after that. It's interesting that you decided to pour your soul this way. 

Writing shortly: i liked your self portrait (my favourite in this: Colors and inconspicuous "bitmap" effect - I'm not sure that i used right terminology)
