Sunday sketches No 4

I'm so excited because Sunday is here and finally i can post my new sketches!! Last week i wasn't at home so i didn't participate at Sophias S.S..
I hope everyone is feeling good and having a wonderful summer!!
Of course don't forget to visit all participants here in Sophia's blog!!

Well, today i decided to show you myself... how???  by sketching me...
To tell you the truth, it's the first time i'm doing this and especially by looking at me in a mirror. I found it extremely difficult and the result isn't what i expected, (the nose is too long, the eyes too close)  however, i'll keep practicing and who knows.........



The first sketch was made with a 2B pencil, then i used aquarella's pencils and with a wet brush i softened the colors.

Update 15/07/2010

I did some changes in my portrait...
Yoy can see it below:

  3. The sketch looks amazing. I tried to do myself and failed miserably, it is extremely difficult to do. Even if it doesn't look exactly like you it is a wonderful sketch.

  4. she looks a bit surprised but I think it's a good effort, it's very hard to draw faces but yours has quite a nice personality to them and you draw them in such symmetrical which I always have a problem of doing, good job

  6. I tell you what, I could NEVER look at myself in the mirror and attempt to draw me!! So kudos to you for the attempt alone!! :)

    I think it is a really great start. Don't give up. Everything takes a little practrice. Soon, you'll be an expert!!!

    Happy Sunday and lots of hugs!! :)

  8. Getting proportions right is always hard for me. I think I always make the eyes bigger than they should be. I don't think I could do a portrait without making the grid first. Even then it's hard for me to get everything right. lol.

    I think you did a good job. Keep practicing! :)

  11. Thank you all of you and each of you seperately for the encouragement and the great - sweet words you wrote!! I needed those words because i was a bit disappointed from my portrait.
    The next two weeks i'll be on vacations but when i'll return i'll try to sketch myself again.. :)

    Till then i wish you wonderful, relaxing summer days!!! :)

  12. Ελένη μου, οι διακοπές μου θα είναι στο βουνό και αν και θα έχω μαζί μου το laptop δεν γνωρίζω αν θα μπορώ να συνδεθώ στο ίντερνετ...
    Σε ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ για τις ευχές σου!! Θα πάρω μαζί μου ακουαρέλες, μολύβια και ένα μπλοκ και ελπίζω να καταφέρω να αποτυπώσω κάποιες από τις εικόνες που θα δω...
    Εύχομαι να περάσεις και εσύ υπέροχα και θα τα πούμε σύντομα!!
