Lino-Cut Lady

Latest assignment for my Illustration Essentials class. Creating a self portrait using a lino-cut print.
Here is what I ended up with. Inspired again by Art Nouveau prints.
At first I left it with a violet background:

4 x 6''
Then I decided I wanted a white background:

4 x 6''
And then I wanted to see what it would look like if I tried to embrace the texture that cutting to the white created:

4 x 6''

So yeah, not really a particular likeness to me, but I wasn't really going for that. I guess it's more of a spiritual/personality portrait, haha. This was pretty fun:)

Initial sketch:
