Andre's Self Portrait
by Andre W. Humphreys
My third drawing
I used graphite pencils only, on graphite drawing paper about 9x12. I was getting more interested in the improvements I've made and was excited to do another portrait so I decided to do a self portrait.
My hair, which has small wave patterns was mostly difficult because I couldn't find any drawn examples anywhere that is close to mine but the end result I was satisfied with. I was mostly impressed by the way I got the position of the shoulders because only my face was in the original picture so I had to improvise.
If I did this picture again I would definitely do something with the background to bring out the picture.
