Charcoal Self-Portrait

For this piece, I first drew an oval (as the base for a head) and used anatomical drawing techniques to add rough features. I spent a great deal of time then refining those features and adding shading, then a neck and shoulders. After all of this was completed, I shaded in the background to provide a sense of where the light source is located in the piece. My very last step was to draw in my glasses.
