Self-portrait - student project

Thank you for your class Gabrielle, it's really helpful !

I'm a beginner and my first attempt to make a self portrait was a complete failure :

But after your class I can see some progress :

The original photo was really bad with little contrast (and with teeth!!) :

I still have trouble with shading and it's work in progress of course. I need a lot of practice and hopefully I'll get better :)
