So this is something I have never done in my memory - drawn myself. I have drawn plenty of others and animals and places etc but never myself.
Took a week doing it at night before bed. The reference is from a series of photo self portraits, which is something I do reluctantly every few years but I wanted to do something different this time.
It's pretty simple and basic. Stipple for the skin tones and lines for the rest. I did a little extra work in Affinity Photo because I usually add the title and my name there and noticed that the right cheek was a mess and needed more stipple work to blend it better. The is black fill with white stipple to give it some added detail.
I avoid looking in mirrors so this was sort of weird, looking at my own face for hours. I think the beard came out well and the hair isn't bad and that is usually what throws me off the most.
