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.

Lily you'll be surprised that as days go by and you go back and look at things fresh from the past how "good" drawings now have flaws and "not your best" drawings turn out to have been great :)

This is a very good project. You are learning lots already.

Very ingenious idea, and very ambitious as well.

I can't draw faces, which may be just as well. I can't even imagine what a self portrait of me would be like. :surprise:

A self-portrait can be anything! You don't even have to draw your face. Just something that represents you maybe?

Thank you for your feedback!
