Seeing as how this will eventually grow to be a portfolio of things I’ve made, it seems appropriate that I start with a self-portrait. I put a lot of effort into this and am pretty proud of it. The only reason I put it through iPhoto was because I was worried it was too low-contrast in real life. This was because I only used mechanical pencil on it. Maybe some day, I’ll finish it by tracing it in sharpie and give it some variation in line-width, but having spent so much time on it already, the notion of making a mistake with ink terrifies me enough to simply leave it as is for a while.
