Last month I decided I wanted to learn to draw a human head, and also learn to draw with charcoal, so here's the deal. I'm currently knee deep in a project, which is, as the title of the thread explains, 100 self portraits in 100 days. I'm on day 35ish and I while I'm proud of the progress I've made so far (I find I am somewhat less clueless than when I began) I finally got up the nerve to put together a thread that I will be updating daily from here on out. I am drawing with charcoal pencil on smooth newsprint, and all are done from the mirror.
You can check out the embarassing beginnings at this tumblr blog: brettshead.tumblr.com
Some days I am VERY strapped for time (or else I am just in a funk) so you might notice that even the more recent drawings have big gaps in quality.
For the purposes of kicking off this thread I will go ahead and post the last eight days of portraits, starting with ten days ago and moving to the most recent. Any feedback you can offer is VERY MUCH appeciated.
