This may be your most "earnest" self-portrait, while it's contrast from your usual powerhouse of Alternative hairstyles (SRSLY you rock this longer hairstyle better than the shortcut) & lithe curves in stylish poses (i.e. fav.me/d66pru1 & fav.me/d6eapyp ), it has sincere air of current state, fatigued but perseverant and with strong hope. This is reflected in small but significant things as in more elaborate dreadlocked hair, smoooth pullover top and cute abstraction of your duties into boxed objects. How one manages to maintain a strong sense of creativity & concentration while juggling many workloads is amazing.
...Hope you get some good rest after your animated project.
