After two months of art classes…

… I’m getting better at the technical skills of drawing.

I did this in about two hours this evening:
2007 Oct 28 - Self-portrait

Compare with this self-portrait from February of this year:

Of course, the style is totally different, but I’m slowly training my eye so I can more accurately reproduce what I see. The realistic style of today’s drawing would have been totally impossible for me to achieve at the time I did the Valentine comic. It doesn’t quite look like me, yet, but it at least looks like an actual person, and a person with character at that.

Yay progress!
