Smile Self Portrait Everyday

Hello!

Two weeks ago I started a new and quite ambitious project. I'm aiming to do a self portrait every day for a whole year. I would love some feedback and critique from other artists to help me develop and improve along the way.


Please check out my blog https://selfieadaybyday.wordpress.com


Any comments or suggestions will be very much appreciated! Thank you!

Well I tip my hat to you. I don't think that I could do that but you're cuter than I am. What is your goal? Besides the experience and 365 self portraits, what do you want to gain? Good work for only a day on each.

I'm just about to start a year long course at art school so I'm hoping I'll develop a lot and this will be a really interesting way to track that. I want to see how I change and how my art changes.

It'll be a real challenge to keep it interesting and to not get bored so I it'll really push me to try things I wouldn't otherwise. I'm only just starting out so still need to experiment and try and find my style.


Thanks for commenting, I'm really hoping that making it a blog I can get feedback and suggestions and respond to that.

Thank you very much, here's today's. I know the proportions are a bit off but I'm trying to not be so precise when I draw. I developed a bit of a ruler habit so I've banned measuring for a bit.

Cool project! Would love to have that kind of discipline to draw or paint something every day >.<

Do you post your photos in any other website? (As Facebook), I would like to trace it and see how it goes, but wordpress it's not really comfortable to me :/

Hello!

Today I stuck my tongue out and my mum thought it was a penis.
