Who, What, Where, When and Why? I do not know.

What does your profile picture say about you?

Your profile picture says a lot about who you are and what's important to you. If you have a photo of yourself in a business suit, looking very professional, then you probably use your social networking profiles seriously. You use them as another weapon in your arsenal of  marketing yourself to potential clients. If you have a photo of your children, then you are probably more interested in family and the true 'social' aspects of social media. If you have a picture of your pet, your pet takes priority in anything you do! If you have a photo of yourself doing the "Duck Face", then it's pretty safe to say, you are a teenage girl.

I switch mine occasionally. I guess it depends on what mood I am in. My LinkedIn profile currently has this:

Since I want a sample of my art on my profile, I chose this small section of a larger piece I had done for Analog Magazine.

One day, I randomly asked for a suggestion on my Facebook Page for a project. Some one suggested I paint their profile picture. Hmmm. Interesting. I thought about it for a minute and decided it would not only be fun, but it could be good practice on how to get a painting done quickly. Well, I did it and it did turned out pretty good.

It's 600pxi X 600pxi and I did it in ArtRage Studio Pro in about 3 hours. I actually didn't want to spend that much time on it, but I was having so much fun experimenting and messing around with it, I went a little overboard.

SOOOOO, someone else has asked me to do there's and since I'm such a sucker, I said I would. For nothing. I think I'm going to do this one in black and white though. The photo ref is a little iffy, but I think I can work with it.

If you'd like your profile pic done, drop me a line on my Facebook Page and I'll see what I can do. I'd like to charge $50 USD for each, but I may do it for nothing. Depends on what mood I'm in.
