I look like a real snob here, don´t I? I had the mirror on a table below me when I drew this, hence the strange angle on the nose and eyes.
Self portraits are amusing. You always end up with a half decent/half wonky image of yourself, that most people can recognize and that EVERYBODY can see something wrong with - but they don´t dare to tell you since they don´t want to hurt your feelings, either about you drawing badly or about how you actually look. ;)
You always get a certain concentrated, almost mad, look in your eyes when you draw yourself. I also get that fine looking angry wrinkle in my forehead. :)
