Week 8.2 Self Portrait

Self Portrait

This was in illustration I made of myself. This was one of the most time consuming projects I have ever made. I took a photograph of myself then spent an hour drawing it in pencil. After that I used my charcoal and nearly turned the table I was working on completely black from the chalky remains of my iniquitous drawing style. I spent a good eight hours straight consistently changing the shading and highlights to create a good image. Prior to this piece I have never made a self portrait before. In addition to this piece I also added a cooler facial hair look to myself, in my opinion. It almost makes me look like a rockstar. Overall I feel good about this piece.
