Self portrait 5… Is that really me? ( Drawing 55 )

Man… I think that the most difficult part of learning to draw your own self-portrait is to look at your creation afterwards.. This guy just seems to be suffering..
I think that maybe if i redid the mouth in this one, it wouldn’t be so bad.. For for once, I’d like to walk normally down to the train. And for the sake of process, lets just let it sit there.

analogrevolutionart gave me some suggestions when i did my last self-portrait, and although i DID listen, I didn’t really carry it out.. She suggested that i draw from real life rather than a photo, that i turn my head and that i drop the smile for a while, to get something that’s easier to handle.. I think that those are good suggestions, and i ought to do all that.. But for now, I’ll stick with this photo.. I want to master it.
