can't find myself in my drawings

i keep looking at myself in the mirror, but I can't completely find me in my drawings... hahaha.

the thing is that there are always some details i miss while drawing that i realize after i finished it, eyes too close or separated, bigger/smaller eyebrows, slant mouth, smaller nose, hahahaha. i'll keep on looking till i can get it right. maybe that's what's really interesting about art, if we could do exactly what we plan or want, maybe it wouldn't be so wonderfully exciting as art is!

The funniest about this drawing i did today is that it looks better (more similar) when it's bigger, which is the contrary as they always look better when I see them smaller on the pc screen.

Hi Martin, (Or Hola, Martin)

You look very serious in this drawing. Are you that serious?

Hi Martin!

Great self-portrait! The larger image seems much more detailed. I always seem to look more serious when attempting a self-portrait via a mirror...I think it's because we're so focused on what we're drawing. lol

Yes Serena, I think the same about it, we concentrate too much while looking at the mirror and drawing/painting at the same time, and after it's finished we realize we look too serious, hehe. Thanks for visiting!
