Self Portrait in Oil – DPW Challenge

6 by 6 inches, oil on hardboard

I just finished this self portrait for this week’s DPW challenge. It’s a little too crooked, and a little too cute, but I don’t mind that :). It reminds me that I want to practice drawing anatomy. I have a set of great tutorials by Riven Pheonix¬†called the Structure of Man. If I had a better understanding of the structure of the human head, I could focus more on getting a likeness without trying to figure out where the eye goes, where the nostril goes, etc.
