I think I’ve attempted self-portrait only once in my life as an assignment in high school. Ever since then, I was puzzled by a weird feeling one gets when attempting to draw oneself. Because we don’t actually look the way we perceive ourselves ^^

This was a quick 45-min graphite practice sketch on newsprint. Immediately, I see a few things I’d change in this drawing. However, I’ll keep it at that as I’m sure there are many more portraits to come ^^ This is my first entry for a 365 sketch challenge ^_^
