Self Portrait by ladyalita Self Portrait by ladyalita
This portrait is of myself when I was about 17 in high school. It was the second art piece I had done of myself for an art class. It sure was challenging. I used a photo of me as reference and did the old fashion way of making a grid. Takes awhile but I enjoyed the process.

enjoy! =)

Materials:
Heavy textured art paper
Ebony pencil (graphite)

Great technique with the humble pencil!

But more importantly is the pose, much more interesting than a standard portrait, full of enigma and questions.
