This is a digital painting done in the same style I used for Paint by Numbers. This time I saved some screenshots to show the process. I started by taking three selfies and stitching them together digitally the way I wanted. Then I doubled the canvas size and started painting.
I separated the original into a grid of smaller squares and placed them next to their corresponding coordinates on my painting, then used smaller and smaller brushes until I was happy with the results.
This took a long time. ♥
