me in minimalism

A minimal selfportrait.
At the very beginning i used to try around with minimalism and left it beside for some time.
This is a very plain photo of myself, taken around two years ago, it just shows how i look, no weird anlge, shadows, make up or fancy hair. It just fitted to the style of minimalism.

pencils and ereaser used, worked on it around 7 hours.
Please full view.

Feedback is appreciated! :)

Re: me in minimalism

I agree with Russ to the extent that the shaded neck seems to not go with the rest of the drawing. But everything else looks great. The eyes are top notch.

Re: me in minimalism

Great Drawing!

I found a photo very similar to your self portrait.
The photo could be used as reference as another approach to drawing the neck,
but your drawing is great as it is if you change the neck, or not.

Re: me in minimalism

I must say that I have never heard of this technique or maybe it just ins't used that often. It looks really good. Now when I first look at the photo I didn't see anything wrong with it, then when I seen Russ's comment I still didn't think anything was wrong with it. Then I kept looking at it. lol. I know you will do what you do, but I will have to agree with everyone else. I like the line that shows the border of the bottom of the face, but the shading takes away from it I think. Great work and I think I am going to try this tecnique out one day.

Re: me in minimalism

Re: me in minimalism

When drawing minimalist style you tend to highlight certain important parts,our brains add all the missing bits.
Hair,eyes,nose and lips are the important parts,you just don't need to put them all in,but the features you do use need to be very stark.
