Oh, SelfieArt Day, how you taunt me! You sound so simple, and yet, you are not. You say, come and play, and then, you turn into hard slog. It is hard to draw yourself!!!
But, in the interests of not-giving-up-ingness, I will continue to try.
This time, I went for the sepia look, in charcoal. I used Derwent pencils for the initial outline.
I used Mont Marte “Coloured CHARCOAL” pencils in Burnt Sienna.
Sanguine. And Sepia charcoal.
So you don’t look exactly like me, who cares?
To add drama, and draw the eye away from silly little things like resemblance, I painted the background in black.
Then, I added a thin line of copper metallic paint around the border. There’s still no getting away from the niggly lack of resemblance thing. Stupid SelfieDay! Never mind. I may not have won the race, but at least I competed, right?
If you decide to join in on the challenge, make sure you swing by Teresa Robeson’s wordpress blog and tell her about it. She’ll include your links on her regularly updated list. Include the hashtags on your post: #SelfieDay and #Doodlewash Day! Have fun.
Talk to you later.
Keep on Creating!
