Think Again by Cataclysm-X Think Again by Cataclysm-X
Posted this one at Facebook and thought "why not post it at deviantART too?" :dummy:

After taking a glimpse at my gallery, username and icon, people somehow keep assuming that I'm a guy, and most importantly, they really think I look like either Misha Collins/Castiel or Robert Downey Jr/Holmes. LOL.

As far as I know I don't look like either. But hey, who am I to say I'm not in denial and really am RDJ with an identity crisis.

Secondly, when people found this self-portrait, they ask me about the accurancy and similarity of the drawing compared to the reference I've used. So I thought it would be fun to mix a part of my drawing .: My Own Worst Enemy :. with the original coloured photo which I used as a reference.

Et voilà! :#1: Here you go!

It doesn't resemble my likeness anymore. I have a fringe now and my hair grew much longer until it nearly reached my butt. There, some useless info you probably didn't want to know. :lol:

Hope you guys and gals have a beautiful week and enjoy your (summer) holidays & vacation. :)
Adiós, ciao, au revoir, नमस्ते, vaarwel, tschüss, até a vista, adjö, cheers my friends!

I love it SO much! 
What i like most about it is the monochrome side, and then the colorful burst. It's almost like there's two different people mushed into one. But that sounds weird-

Did you do this in graphite and in color pencil? If so, I love how you integrated them together!
AceDreamStar Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2011
Your drawing of yourself is beautiful and judgmental, and yes, it’s true you do seem to have the spirit of a man (no offense) which makes sense as to why you have to female guardian angles. Though evil is not technically a guardian; life is not complete without it, along with good. You’re one of the few artists I’ve seen who draws lucid portraits. Excellent print, very spirited.:heart:

The thinking is very nice:)
Shisho2k Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Dur, I just realized this was you. =D

From reading what you write, it sounds like you have some kind of reservations or self image shyness going on. If that's the case I wouldn't worry yourself over it, you're actually quite adorable. :boogie:

This is you? You're very pretty!
I really like your hair by the way. Mine is too curly and annoying! :frustrated:
But yours is straight and blond....You look petite, are you sure you're twenty-two? :confused:
Cataclysm-X Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Gosh thanks! :blushes:

Curly hair can be really beautiful :) my youngest bro used to have a lot of curls too.
I'm quite small yes.. People are always unsure about my age. Sometimes they think I'm older than my real age (25 or even 27) while other times they think I'm much younger (usually 16 but sometimes even 12! I once had a "where's your mommy" conversation with someone. It was ridiculous :XD:).
ZoMg1010 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011
You're welcome =D
I know some curly hair is pretty, but mine is just frizzy mess. :frustrated:

:lol: you don't look THAT small.
TurbulentIndigo Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2010

Word of advice though, once you post art on facebook it's theirs, not yours.

I always thought you were a girl xD Most guys don't put cute guys as their avatars :P

I dunno how else to say it but you look xD Like Cataclysm-X. Not like I pictured you, I basically saw you as your old icon (the one with the red bandanna) but still cool. ^^; Sorry if that makes no sense xD

LOL yeah it must be awkward since you're all good at drawing dudes. D: I think it's pretty obvious that I'm a girl, idk.

So... if you're really RDJ with an identity crisis, you changed your phone number without telling me about it! Shame on you! :boo: (LOL, this emote is hilarious! :lol:)

Awesome portrait, the colours in your hair are brilliant... And you look so pretty! :D (Whenever I try to do a portait of myself, I end up looking like a spokesperson for crayola or some other colour exlosion buisness)
