This semester I'm taking ANI 112A and our first assignment was a self-portrait in charcoal!  I drew the portrait in my room with the window shut and just the room light on, to keep a constant light source.  We were not allowed to use photographs.  Here's my portrait, start to finish (sans fixative):

Blank drawing paper. 
Quick sketch
Darkening some lines and hair.
More corrections and more hair. 
I look kind of angry, but it's too weird (and painful, after a bit) to simply smile at myself in the mirror.  This drawing took about eight hours.  Hopefully at the end of this semester I'll be faster!
