This is my second self portrait that I have done this year. It isn't my favorite piece I have made, but it is okay. I have to admit that this one was tricky. My main trouble was with the eyes. I once made them too small than way too big and than to "they're still big for your face". But finally after several tries I got the eyes down, wooo! The way I did this was by paying attention to the shadows instead of the length of everything on my face.
I completed this picture basically by sitting in a dark room with a studio light, using light and dark blue chalk and black charcoal.
The unit I did with fabric helped a lot with this portrait since it involved clothing.
