Gesture marks and self portrait

Gesture marks and self portrait - student project

I really enjoyed trying these exercises!  

They really helped me to break free of analysis paralysis and work with gesture using traditional and digital brush pens.  

Trying to make quick, less controlled marks in the earlier exercises really helped me work more spontaneously when drawing the final portrait.
