Self-Portrait Sketch

Did this graphite sketch just a bit ago using an F pencil.  I wasn't so concerned with values as I was with the features.  It does look like me except my face is more elongated and the neck looks too wide.  It was fun getting back into portraits as it has been quite some time since I've done any sketching, of any kind.

Very nice, Ann,

I don't think the neck is too wide. I think it would look like that with the head elevated that way.

Interesting pose for your self-portrait, Ann. I like it but think you need to come to my house so I can feed you ice cream every day and fatten you up a bit :) Hope you are feeling fine!

This is wonderful Ann.

Thanks for the comments Vicki, Rhonda and Ann. It is always a bit intimidating trying to capture the image of oneself.

Rhonda, I put on three lbs and just knew I finally weighed more than 110. I weighed 108 but I'm still trying to gain which is a good excuse to eat several slices of cherry cheesecake
