- Self Portrait - by coreymill - Self Portrait - by coreymill
= Full View =

- Well, this is one of the MANY self portraits that I have had to do in my life . . . but I still think that it turned out rather well. Even though traditional pieces never look as nice in photographs as they do in person.

- - The assignment was a "straight-forward" self portrait. From about shoulders up, using a mirror to give it a more intimate/personal feel to it as apposed to a strange pose or facial expression that is more "staged".

Done in graphite = 22x30

haha thanks.

I used to get Kurt Cobain a lot when I had my hair really long. But my hair's quite a bit shorter now and looks more like this [link]

i like the rendering of hair,
shirt texture looks slightly odd,
but could be the paper.

Woah... thats amazing. I've tried doing self portraits of myself with either a photograph or a mirror but they never work out! xD I feel like I can't be honest with myself and draw my flaws or traits without over-doing anything... have you got any suggestions?

coreymill Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2008
Thanks. And what I do when drawing self portraits is show them to my family. Because they see my face WAY more then I do . . . so they can usually tell me if something is wrong and I just didn't see it. They usually are REALLY helpful :D

It's beautifully done, if you don't me saying. :blush: The hair is really good, the way it softly flows down and then curves out towards the tips, but what really caught me was your eyes. They're drawn so well, I feel as if I'm gazing directly at you and it's extremely captivating.

Just an...incredible job.

It doesn't help you look very attractive to boot, hehe.

Hehe, you're very welcome. Your technique is extremely good and the strokes are so clean. The hair looks like I can see light reflect perfectly in every individual strand; and your eyes are done just as well. :D
