    Drawing/painting myself

    During the last years, I've drawn and painted myself serveral times. But I'd like to improve my skills, so I'm going to try sketching my face every day. I know that I probably won't do it. Nevertheless my aim is to make 50+ portraits of mine.

    I hope you support me with comments/critics to encourage me to continue.

    Here's my first one. It's been done within 1 hour. With photo reference.

    Next portrait!
    I'm really pale, so I had to cheat a little bit. Darker shadows and an bright light source, although it wasn't on my photo reference.

    I hope you like it anyway...

    I like how you did the hair and the eyes in the last one. That light looks also great. Try painting from your reflection too, not just photos.

    One and a half year later, I decided to draw me again. This time from my reflection. I painted it yesterday and made some corrections today.
