Gaining ground on my 2nd self portrait for drawing. due in a week. I'm excited about this one now even though it started out rough. this is the third LARGE piece of paper that I've sketched a portrait on, the 2 previous were other completely different , TOO abstract ideas. this one's simple and has no blank/questionable/awkward spots. I actually based this one off of a simple idea, of the picture of me when I was less than 5 hanging in a tree smiling. Funny how you can draw more meaningful, beautiful pieces from the simplest elements of life.
