A Self-Portrait

Interestingly enough, all my self-portraits are of a slender version of me. Some wishful thinking interfering with my pencil, I guess.

I'm going to get a mirror so I can do a more accurate portrait. It was nice to notice, though, that both Jenny and Katie recognized which sketches were self-portraits as they flipped through my sketchbook! It seems that the key to a recognizable portrait is the tilt of the features, as well as the shape of the face and the proportions of the features to each other.

Unlike my short self, you must have a long slender neck, too.

Have a good week! :):)

I am laughing as I well imagine any SELF portrait I do will take off 25 lbs easy! Excuse me going to de-weight myself!!!

Yours is beauty full.
