Self portrait 3

The last of the self portraits! This one’s directions were just “anything [we] think is interesting,” and I find profiles to be interesting because they can look almost impromptu, like you’ve sketched the person while they were in the middle of something else. Except in this case, I sketched myself. So.

Anyway, this one is also graphite, and to keep up the pattern of using a different technique for each self portrait, this one involved gesture drawing strokes to create the shapes and forms, lights and darks, and no blending or highlight-pulling with erasers. It’s also my favorite of the three, because I think it looks most like me naturally, as opposed to me posed.
