Self Portrait in Pencil

I'm a bit horrified to post this drawing but it's all in the spirit of practising my craft and motivating myself to keep going no matter how self conscious I feel.  I mean, if markjustbecause can do it then so can I.  Bearing in mind it was late at night, I was very tired and feeling a bit miserable but still quite pleased to be practising my drawing skills, you'll have to excuse how downright wretched I look in this drawing. It doesn't even really look like me (even thought I would say that, wouldn't I?). I'll make another attempt at a self portrait one day and I'll try to be smiling in that one!
