Self Portrait (1)

My first self portrait. I sat in front of the bathroom mirror for this session.

00s self portrait

I’m just now learning to draw the face components. Separately, I’ve worked on lips, eyes, noses, mouths. I thought it would be funny to draw my self portrait just as I’m starting out and then draw it again later (much later).

This sort of looks like what I think I look like. It fits my general description, but I don’t think anyone would look at it and say, “Hey, that’s Tresha!”

It seems odd to me that I couldn’t draw myself to be any more recognizable.

  1. You’re right. It’s a good drawing, but I wouldn’t have said, “That looks like Tresha.” Self-image is a fascinating topic, isn’t it? It will be interesting to compare this sketch with future self-portraits. But I wouldn’t wait too long to do another one. All the great masters drew or painted themselves frequently. After all, your own face is the one subject that’s elusive but always there.
