Self portraits....take ages to get right!

We were asked to bring in a photo of ourselves for self portraits.
I havent done a self portrait since I was 17, its a lot easier to draw other people!

When it came to drawing myself, I found it very difficult I had to restart three times before I was even happy with a starting point.

My final outcome took me about an hour and a half maybe a bit more as i finished it at home.

Im pretty pleased with it although I can see that the proportions are not quite right.

An array of different toys, all arranged with our best friend Shelly the Skeleton.
I really enjoyed this session, sometimes its just nice to do some observational drawings :)
