Self portrait

posted on 10th of january, 2009

It must be very common among unexperienced artists to make self-portraits (from old photos usually). Nothing wrong about it when you're too shy to ask someone to be your model.
So, that's a pencil drawn portrait of me how I looked a couple of years ago when I had short hair. Since I was a child some people used to mistake me for a boy, it always caused funny situations.
I grew as a tomboy, playing with boys and refusing to use make-up (I still think using make up is a bad idea). And in my opinion this self portrait expresses my spirit the best.
Maybe one day I'll be experienced enough to ask someone else to be my model. The photos are patient, but live people are more interesting to draw.
