Recorded my portrait bit by bit

Thought that I would upload a video of a drawing I created recently attaching photo`s together. It took me ages as I had to take a picture of my drawing after only a few pencil strokes with my digital camera resting on the edge of a chair. I draw quite mechanically at first ensuring that all bits are in proportion (there`s nothing worse than getting to the end of the drawing and then finding the mouth is in the wrong place) and then work on it using softer and softer pencils and lots of rubber building up the drawing to the level of detail that I want to end up with. I have just put it on Youtube which is all new to me but hopefully it will be useful to someone.


I pieced together about 60 drawings using various software to try and get the drawings sharper on video, to line up the eyes a bit and then to create the video. Give me a shout if you want more information.
