since everyone else did blind contour self portraits last week, i thought that i would play catch up. i also thought i'd venture out into the world of moving the pen off of the paper to see what the results would be. another difference is that i thought i'd use my pen instead. since shading isn't an issue, i thought it'd be a safe venture.
this is the first one that i did. it's funny when you find that you like your blind contour self portraits better than your more planned out, high effort pieces.
this second one is my favorite of the three i did. it's actually the third, but i didn't like the second one at all. i tried to bring the glasses into it, and it got to be too much. the three-quarters portrait worked out pretty well, if i don't mind saying so.
