profile self portrait

Whenever I see profile drawings it always surprises me how tiny the amount of space the features take up compared to the expanse of the cheek and jaw. Look at the mouth in this drawing – such a seemingly inconsequential little smudge and yet it sets the mood (my sulky looking mood, haha!) for the whole portrait.

    • I find drawing other people stressful because of their reaction if it doesn’t look like them or they just don’t like it. With a self portrait I don’t have to worry and can relax :)
