Self Portrait Number Three

So…. taking a selfie is interesting, riiiiiight?

I definitely wanted to tackle my eyes and nose again, and stuck with a standard, selfie type photo to do so, although looking at it now, I only wish I have chosen a different angle.  Maybe next time? 🙂

I also wanted to take it a bit further than I have before and attempt to include more detail in my clothing and to include my tattoo as well, which I have avoided because it just seemed unnecessary.

I used a variety of graphite pencils for this, especially on the hair.  Ranging from 2H – 12B.  I lightly employed some vine charcoal in some areas for shading and a charcoal pencil on the shirt.  A brush tip marker was used to fill in the area of the tattoo.
