Self portrait part 2


edm draw your self portrait 2 sm
Originally uploaded by sbergeron00

Today I tried another self portrait. I just grabbed what ever paper and it ended up being 140# watercolor paper. It was drawn with just an old mechanical pencil that had HB graphite in it.

I didn't do any real blending of the lines just some sketchy shading and accidental smudges. it was done pretty fast (for me) about 20 minsand was drawn from a photo of me that my husband took from last spring (07).

The only way I'm gong to get any better is to keep trying and working at it. BUT I want it to look like me NOW! sigh...

cheers!

Wellll...it might be you. It does look very similar to the previous one. I have to say well done.

This is nicely done. The hair is great! I really like the expression too!

I think you're doing well getting in the practice sketches that we all know we need to get under our belts. I can't wait until you venture into colour! There is so much fun ahead!

There is nothing like practice for portraits -- and i have to tell you, self-portraits intimidate the heck out of me. What you can do if you are up for the challenge is do a self-portrait every week, or every other week, or every month, and sort of monitor the progress. You have a very solid start.

It looks so much like the one on the right side of your blog that I'd say it must be looking like you. Remember, we don't always see ourselves as others do.

Cool braids! I think you're very good at that difficult exercise!
