I posted a while back about a drawing project that I was engaged in– a 7-foot tall realistic self-portrait. …In pencil. (Yes, I wore them down to stubs)
This was such a strange final assignment for my drawing class. We (the students) mostly sat around in the studio, twitching slightly from hyperconcentration, and wondering, “what does one do with a larger-than-life self-portrait?” It’s not exactly the typical Mother’s Day gift, but it’s even weirded to have it on your own wall.
So now it’s in storage. But I’m pretty proud of it (except for the face, which I, um, never finished in the chaos of exams) and wanted to share.
This is most of my body, but the full thing was head to toe.
(fun fact: I almost forgot to draw my tattoo until the last minute)
This is the strongest part, I think. That damn rip in my jeans took me HOURS.
Yeahhhh, just look at it.
