Storytime was part of the colored pencil magazines challenge for this month and what a task!  All that texture and detail took quite a while!  I couldn't resist the cute image though especially as i haven't been feeling well recently, it was the perfect tonic!

Self Portrait

After drawing the Snow Baby artwork i just couldn't get the idea of doing a self portrait out of my head!

So here it is!  This is me in pencil form!  It was very weird looking at myself for hours on end!  There were times when i forgot who i was drawing and periods when it didn't even look like me because i was so drawn in to the different areas, it was all a blur to me!

Now i step back and stop fiddling with little bits (I could have gone on forever), i am really happy with the likeness and my first successful self portrait!
