self photography

so im trying to do some self photography and just after some tips on how to improve. obviously these are heavily photoshopped

i have to take a self portrait for part of my uni work and am wondering how i could improve or what areas to improve in or anything feedback at all. be as harsh as you want i really dont mind.

im not the most comfortable taking photos of myself haha i dont know why, just not a fan of being in the photo i prefer to shoot them

also these aren't my final pieces/work but more or less ideas/development

thanks in advance

these are bold and may be breaking some rules, but they kind of work.
weird...I was using a globe in a self portrait last night. sometimes you have to use yourself if you want to do experimental works.
keep going with these!

The composition in both images are really well done. You have given each shot a personality. Well done. As for the post processing, I think it works pretty well but is processed to the point where it will be judged according to personal tastes more than the artistic vision of the photographer.

The second one is very theatrical...i like it...maybe in black and white, a tad less processed (maybe some white powder over the face too ).
Now that i think of, that processing reinforces the insane look..
keep them coming.

Both are cool.
The fourth is very comic-like, that one can be great only in B&W, without the pencil look. (great lighting, reminds me of a shot of "La Jetée".)
good work.
