It's cool how you show your steps to completing this. I love the detail on your scketch. Being an artist myself, I know how long it takes and how hard it is to draw a self portrait; and sitting on the page really helps bring the picture to life. The attire that the skecth wears if well detailed and gives it more of a realistic touch, the shading helped a lot too. I don't see anything that could be fixed or changed, and I honestly think that giving this picture a background would take the eye away from the main focus, but it wouldn't look bad if you had decided to. (Can you do backgrounds?) Have you done any pictures in color?

I do love that you show the steps.  I have have sat and stared at your images trying to figure out how you do certain aspects of them.  I love your work.

thanks so much for the review.
I might add more details and backgrounds later on. I've already made colored sketches in "Pencil Vs Camera":
Take care

to be fair the medium of the sketch should also be photo-realistic or some filters and stuff on the photo to make it a line sketch 
Nice start tho!!!

Can you show us what it looks like from the top? :)
zvrn's avatar
Yeah...I hope he will show it from top view...I've always been curious how these 3d-drawings looks like from above.
nmystery's avatar
from above 3d drawings are all stretched out lengthwise (or can be stretched other ways.. depending on the angle the artists wants it to be viewed from)

Wow, I honestly thought you used a projector or something to draw yourself out. This is amazing, both the final outcome and process of making it.
YumeiKaze's avatar
That is so amazing! I wish I had enough practice to do that. :)
