Every Day in May: Day 14 – Drawing for Myself – WIP

EDIM - 14a - WIP

Yesterday I got out my neglected watercolor moleskine book and set out to do a project just for myself.  Back in February I was looking through photos on Flickr and came across this self-portrait by Dominic Perry .  He gave me permission to use the photo as a reference.   I told him that I was primarily interested in the hair and eyes and that I would most likely change the pose.

I finally got around to working on the drawing yesterday.  I’m not sure if I want to do this as a painting, or just an ink and wash drawing.   I’m pleased with this initial rough sketch.   In the photograph the subject has, in my opinion, a rather defiant and cocky expression.   As I sketched  and kind of searched about for what I would do, I decided to try to make my character a bit world-weary and defeated.  Michael says he looks like someone who’s been waiting at the airport too long.  I suppose that I could call it  Stand-by.

I’ll see how this goes.   I’ll post my progress.  I just hope it doesn’t end up a disaster.
