The Year Of Drawing Adventurously – Week 2 – Selfie

Following the chart to 52 drawings this year. My second challenge of the year is to draw myself. This is a sketch of the photo I use for my Welcome Page.

  1. Looks so good! As I’ve mentioned… I do not generally enjoy drawing people. I’m always disappointed with my work! And drawing myself? I always wonder who the hell it is by the time I’m done! But yours looks like you… really great job.

    1. Thanks so much! My first attempts at people were horrible. I had a little guidance from another artist and I’ve watched some tutorials on YouTube for help. It’s made a big difference!

  2. It’s a good portrait, and basing it on a photo rather than looking in a mirror is better for avoiding “The Stare”.

    Would like to make a book recommendation seeing some of the comments from others above, worth taking out from your local library if they’ve got a copy. “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” by Betty Edwards. It’s well worth a look, even if you’re a beginner.

      1. Sure… I did try to comment on both of your drawings, but I see that they disappeared. Check to see if they are waiting in moderation or if they went into your spam folder!
