Self Portraits Galour!

Our final drawing for Comp & Drawing was a self-portrait in the style of Ingres. I didn't really get it, but this is how it turned out anyways.

For my Head and Hands class, we had to draw one hundred 3"x4" portraits. We chose 25 artists from 3 categories (Western Artists, Japanese Woodblock Print Masters, and Masters of American Comics). We copied three of their portraits and drew one self portrait in their style. The we cut and glued them to a 30x40 board for final presentation, as well as creating a hand bound self portrait book featuring the 25 self portraits. My favorite blocks from the 3 categories follow.
