self portrait sketch



Yesterday Woodrow Phoenix asked me why my pictures of myself never actually look anything like me. I said I'd get back to him, and thought that I could either start going into deep psychoanalytic mode or just try to draw a more realistic picture of myself. So here's a quick drawing, looking into the full-length mirror (which means it's me in reverse.) I'd still like to find a shorthand technique, though, there's no way I'd draw this realistically in, say, a mini comic, or I'd never have time to finish it.

Edit Here are a couple pictures that figured into my discussion with Woodrow... including his own not-very-realistic self portrait. (I love the spindly legs!) His version on the DFC site looks much more like him.
