Self-portrait in colour pencil


I enjoy drawing self portraits, but i never quite get my likeness - even drawing the grid up didn't help me quite get the face shape right! I think I've turned out a bit skinnier than the pic.

It's quite cheap kraft paper so I couldn't layer a lot of colour on, but I quite like the look of the thin layers such as the shirt and hair. It's a bit pink but it's the closest I could get with my pencil range. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.


Thanks for the class!
