excercizing self portraits

I found a new challenge: drawing self portraits! I did one last week that you can see here and doing that made me want to dive into some techniques and try more. I drew my profile, with a photo for reference. I'm very happy with the result, I have to say. And surprised too! This really is me.

Then the real challenge: drawing my own portrait from the mirror! I was way ahead of myself by deciding to also add an expression on my face.

I can use some more practice here The eyes are sort of right, the nose is a bit too small, the mouth is kind of mine, but not quite... and it's all a bit stiff. Practice, practice, practice.
