Self Portrait.

Something I threw together tonight after work.
I just wanted to draw something that ISN'T an assignment. I think you need to do that as often as possible to keep from losing yourself in your work. What would you make if no one was directing you? What comes straight from your head?

I hadn't done a self-portrait in a while, or, well, a portrait of anyone, so I figured I needed practice. Pencil + reference + ink + photoshop.

Thanks for looking.

ALSO: flickr updated.

And yes, Lenny, I am a halftone junky. :P
