First Selfie Sketch

I’ve never been one for the ever-popular phone selfie.  I’m rather self conscious about my appearance (who isn’t?) so I’ve always shied away from doing self portraits.  Last night, stuck for things to draw, I decided to go for it.

This is done with straight up pen so I had to do a lot of redrawing as I went along.  I made my face too long overall (hence why I have a rather dramatic neck shadow) and my hat was way too tall so I worked a bit of background there to cover it up.  Just an example of working through your problems.  Overall I’m pretty pleased, I haven’t done any proper portraits for a long time and this actually has somewhat of a likeness.
