    Crappy self potraits of a crappy face :)

    Here's pretty much all self portraits I've done so far... From oldest to newest.


    A crappy old pencil drawing


    A sketchy one. I like this one.



    The next two have some... accessories added




    This one's the first colored self portrait I've done. Looks kind of... superficial.

    Alright, just finished this one. I think it's better than the previous one in terms of color variety.

    It seems that making these keeps getting a little bit easier each day... Or perhaps it's just because I found an angle where my face is better lit. It's hard to draw your face when it's completely in the shadows. Anyhow, this one was pretty fast and equally sketchy. Also, in the previous one I just looked like an old Chinese woman.

    Well, I did another self portrait... This one right after taking a sauna. Tried a little bit different technique this time. Some comments/crits would be appreciated as always.

    Somehow I always manage to look crappy in my portraits even if I never draw any of my zits.



    Oh, here's also a tiny little self portait I did a week or so ago in pencil.

    Thanks! I'm sure I'll keep making more of these. I was thinking I should try making a bigger one in pencil next... hmm. We'll see.

    You're quite good with features. I agree with others when they say to keep going.
