Self Portrait by Rick-Kills-Pencils Self Portrait by Rick-Kills-Pencils
*** UN-enlarged view is Exact Size as actual drawing ***

Well...it's about time I did a self portrait huh? The photo was taken by my daughter Maggie, when she was shooting me for business cards. Between shots I just made a goofy face :D
It is the same kinda face I made when I was 2 years old, my parents entered me into the "Little Mr. Dallas" Baby contest. I took 2nd place lol. I should post that baby pic of me for grins? On a side note, the lighting in the reference photo makes my right (your left) eye look very dark, and slightly larger?

SIZE: 6x7 INCHES
TIME: about 5 or 6 hours?
PAPER: Bristol Smooth 300 series
PENCILS: Staedtler H, B, 2B
TOOLS: Blending stumps, Q-tip, Tampon :lmao:

Going to take a break and hang with my mom and dad for the weekend. Gonna try to make the video where I answer questions for ya'll
:D:D

Nice work, Rick! I still need to do a self portrait. I started one recently, but my wife said the photo reference that I used didn't really look like me - I tossed it in a drawer. : )

I always mess something on my self portraits :D but I also improve on a couple things, ha!

Hi Rick,

Awesome self portrait! Am I able to use this in a tumblr theme I'm designing (and may end up selling)? No worries if not.

Thanks,
Mark.
