The self portrait project will never end, I'm sure. I've been doing some half hearted tries in my journal. All done at the end of loooong days. Focusing on drawing made me wind down and relax, but I have to admit, I didn't take much time for them, so they don't look like me. But that's okay - these were done in the past few weeks as journal entries, and were nice exercises, and the different outcomes are very interesting.
It's proven. When I'm relaxed and not too focused on the end result or restrained time, drawing a self portrait goes way better! Next time, I need to take a better picture though (the look on my face is a bit weird!) to draw from... However, I'm real happy with the result.
I used an HB-pencil and an eraser for this drawing.
