Here’s my fourth attempt in a short period to draw myself from a mirror image.
This time I needed more than a few minutes. The self assignment was to find new things in my own face, things I had never seen before. While not completely satisfied with the result, I think it’s a real improvement on earlier versions.
I also used a bounding box to get the proportions right. When it came to shading, I had to take off my reading glasses and work with a blurry focus of my eyes on the artwork. The reading glasses just threw me off too much to get the shading at the right position.
That is all.
