Drawing 2 – Self portrait

1000 drawings, Illustration


I don’t usually do self portraits but I was inspired by the Inktober drawing-a-day challenge (which i’ve totally missed this year), and also the French Inktober which has an added challenge of a set daily theme. Their first theme… Self portrait.

So my aim with this one was to work in a bit more dramatic shadowing, and include a graphical background, to give an aesthetic result (at the risk of seeming narcissistic).

Still getting to grips with my manga pen nibs and the fact i’m working on bog-standard tracing paper.
