This was SUCH a fun exercise I made two cards today. The idea is you make a self portrait line drawing without looking at your paper. Then add some colour with your medium of choice (mine is acrylic of course).
The first one was done while I looked in the mirror (not sure why I thought that was going to help - LOL). I could not see my paper as I had it on a book and had it tilted towards me. I added some acrylics and ta-da - its' me!
Then someone (on our ICAD FB group) pointed out that these are usually a continuous line drawing. i.e. made without picking up the pen between eyes, nose, hair etc. - Yikes! So I thought what the heck and gave it a shot too.
Hilarious! I think I'll do one of these every time I need a good laugh. You should try it - if you do let me know!
