Me and Myself by Simkaye Me and Myself by Simkaye
Self portrait.

Ok ok, for those who haven't yet guessed, Mic is my good alter ego (and the polar opposite of Sol). His conception began with "if I were a guy..." And yes, if I were a guy I would be a very superfabulous homosexual.

So this is a picture of me and my male-self, I suppose.

You've already seen Sol, my dark alter ego's beast form:

Michael Allan Houser - male - Homosexual - Superego - "Me"
Encompasses: understanding/acceptance, compassion, career-drivenness, passion/love, wisdom, inner peace, emotional strength, positivity, spirituality, femininity, confidence/courage, gentleness, fashion, art.

Solstice - female - Asexual - Id - "I"
Encompasses: Ambition, distrust/jealousy, detachment, physical strength, carelessness, masculinity, chaos/unpredictability, secrecy, anger/ferocity, intensity, wit, protection, lust, negativity, impulse.

Mic is the best of me, the very embodiment of my good conscience, the absolute best of me and then some. He's a stronger part of me than Sol is, though that hasn't always been so.

Mic makes me strong in a way that is gentle, while Sol makes me strong in a way that is dangerous.

8" x 10" watercolours, coffee, acrylics, and prismacolour premier coloured pencils.

Eh!! I am so blown away by this. For starters, the expressions! You two definitely look like you're enjoying the party, but especially just being in each other's company. I love love love the posing and just damn. Them clothes are gorgeous (AND YOU PROBABLY HAVE THEM RIGHT). I am so jealous of how fabulous Mic looks. The outfit uggh. It's like so fancy but also so much fun. THE VEST! I am having a fashion overload here OK. And I don't know why, but I have always really liked Mic's hair and this still has not changed. Is that matching nail polish by the way...
I love the deeper meaning to everything you do, especially since it is so personal. And you share it with us. The difference in how your other "selves" have shaped you are very special. Both dark and so very light, it is beautiful to see them both drawn and mirrored to yourself.

:D Thank you so much!
I DEFINITELY HAVE MY OUTFIT. I tried to paint sequins. I tried.
Leave it to you to be the one to notice the matching nail polish! I'm just wringing my hands in glee that someone caught that detail. I'm just so glad that someone appreciates the effort and meaning I sink into my work, it gives me all these sappy, lovey emotions that I can't even begin to describe. PHEELS

Ugh so jealous. I think you did a perfectly fine job. From afar, sequins shine and that's definitely what your shirt is doin'. Maybe I like hands or well I definitely like nail polish. Interestingly enough, I noticed it on Mic's hand FIRST lol.
Yes be overcome by da pheels

Haha!! All I can think about when looking at this picture is the song "I'm In the Mood for Dancing" by The Nolans :giggle:. Haha I didn't know Mic was your alter ego but that's epic! I love his hair! And argh! You draw you so well! I freaking love the texture on the clothes. They look so realistic and beautiful. The poses and anatomy are brilliant and great job on the colouring and shading as well hun :hug:.

Thank you!! :la:
I tweak Mic's personality for story purposes, to make him his own, rounded person, but the core of him even in the stories remains the best of me and then some.
