My teacher told us that whenever he has his students do self portraits they always look like they are either scared or mad. He was right. When he assigned the self portrait project all our drawings looked really miffed. Mine looks especially spooky. My angle was really weird. Regardless, it's probably my best drawing ever. It makes me want to continue learning to draw portraits.
In the words of Napoleon Dynamite: "It took me about an hour to do the shading on your upper lip." However, I probably won't be asking anyone to go to a dance with me by drawing their portrait. At least not any time soon.
