Another self portrait, this time using a 'Bark' coloured Inktense pencil.
Spent approx. 25-30 mins on this one while watching TV with a shaving mirror resting on the arm of my sofa.
A little kinder this time, although my roll neck jumper isn't flattering my neck and chin area especially well.
I had intended wetting the ink up with a waterbrush after sketching but hunger set in and I started dinner instead.

Nice but in total honesty, I liked the other one better. I didn't find it scary at all and overall I really liked the comp and colour.

Such a cool thing your doing.

I second Margret Ann, great eyes this time... You are a beautiful person, inside and out. I like your roll up top, (we call them turtle necks)... course I like them because they hide my old woman neck LOL
Great self portrait.
