I tried this challenge before, but I wasn't that successful, so I thought: why do you not try it again?
Note: I won't upload every portrait singly (I already drew 3 ones, but I'm not really satisfied with the second one, so I don't post it yet). But, if I succeed in this challenge (hopefully), I will upload a picture including every portrait I created - a collage of a sort. ;)
Enough with the jaw, let's start :D.
The following portrait was actually the first one (above is the third):
It doesn't precisely look like me, but I am still quite happy about how it turned out. :)
However, the main thing is that I practise a lot and learn something about the light and shadow ratio in the face and how the human head itself is constructed.
Furthermore, to draw a portrait with the aid of a plain mirror or in general from real life is pretty much the most difficult thing which you can think about when drawing.
So, reproducing my face is just a minor matter ;).
That's it for now with the challenge ~
Some more doodlings:
