A sequence and some colour!
a la bapsi - Thanks a lot for looking :]
Black Spot - Thanks for the support, I think drawing larger has really helped.
306th - 313th
8 more! Into my new house down in Bournemouth now, eager and excited to start my second year! Hoping for that to be reflected here.
Hey Meaisín really enjoyed looking at you. You're doing a brilliant job especially of coming up with different poses and styles. I really look forward to seeing the next ones. Very inspirational!
Marian Rowling - Thanks a lot for the kind words. Your comments are flattering and inspirational too :]
351st - 361st
Eleven towards a countdown...
Hmm... It would appear that my scanner and resizing images is not best friends with this fine grain-heavyweight paper... please excuse the 'extragrain' :/

It is done... Happy Birthday My Face... I wished for better drawing skills...
I have completed a self portrait from live reflections every day for the last year. 365 days of hair growth, different mediums, themes, good times, bad bad times, and a lot of learning. My desire and inspiration has been to improve, and has come from seeing all of the work around me, the work from other sources such as ConceptArt, my friends and family and the people around here who said nice things to encourage me onwards.
It has indeed been a year of reflections, and I think I leave this exercise for now with an excitement to try other things. I do not stop doing these self portraits to stagnate, but to try and use my time to improve dramatically in other areas! I need to pursue an unquantifiable list of art mediums, topics, work, studies... and I'm eager.
I was recently successful in applying for an exchange to the Parisian art school ESAG for Jan-March next year, and I want to be awesome before, during, and especially afterwards :]
The drawing is about 'doing it'... and keeping on doing it... to keep enjoying it, keep challenging yourself, be realistic and aim for the best. And I've got to do more! Hopefully I'll be back here now and again to test myself and make sure I'm improving while pursuing other goals. I definately think my imagination needs a test and some room to breathe!
I've gone on a bit, but, good luck all! Thanks, watch [me fill] this space...

Hey, Congrats! It's interesting seeing how far you came in only a year. There's a lot of really cool, and well-thought out pieces in there. It's very inspiring!
I started a year a self-portraits 13 days ago actually and someone said you'd just finished a year, so I thought I'd take a look =] (I'm first year animation by the way)
It's amazing to see what progress you've made after 365, it's really good! I'm also trying to reach 365 (only at 28 so far), so this is great motivation. Keep up the great work man, it's definitely paying off! Your line quality and consistency really improved leaps and bounds already
Aquanoctis - Thanks buddy. It's great to hear it's inspirational, good job starting the exercise. Hope you're enjoying the course so far. I'll see you in the studio, it would be nice to see your self portraits :]
jeremygordon89 - Cheers for the feedback. I'm glad to hear it's motivational, those comments of improvement really push me on!
That's great Francis you can really see how much you've improved over the year. Well done.
