dang,

must be hard to draw somehting like that without a reference.
But it seems to have worked out.
I like contour line drawings so I really dig this.
It looks like there is a light source coming from our left. But im not sure if the bold green represents shadow or light.

Awesome

Cheers/

Yeah.... It was supposed to look lighter on the left... the purple was mostly to throw in some color... but it could have been darker... consider it a secondary lightsource.
It doesnt really look terribly well, but since its my own face I kinda know what it looks like. so the lack of reference wasnt that big a problem.
THanks

Haha you're hip...

It must be an inmense P in the A to make a self portrait without a reference, and that's an awesome brush you've got there, looks all chalky!


J-qb responds:

It does doesnt it... to tell you a secret, its the same one as I used for the Rhino and the Skull paintings, just different settings.
I think the black background helps the chalk look too.

The goal of this one wasnt really to be a self-portrait, but I tried just drawing random made up faces, and that didnt work, so I decided to model it to my own face... i see it often enough anyways.
