Gah, I feel so conceited drawing self-portaits. But I really liked the original photograph and really wanted to draw it. Took about 2-3 hours to draw. I was on a good rhythm. And I quite like drawing stuff from photographs. One of these days I'm going to gather my flower pictures and draw them. There are some violets and foxgloves I've adored for a few years.
Took about two and a half hours. 0.5mm & 0.7mm pencil on 8.5"x11" plain paper. Photoshop for the blue.
