Setting Up for Self Portraits

It's getting more and more difficult to wake up in the mornings with it being so dark outside. :p I'm always pressing snooze at least three times before I can finally wake up. In art class today we worked on practicing other artists' self portraits in order to prepare to do our own. It'll be a bit more difficult than any other self portrait I've ever done since we will be using charcoal this time. Your hand has less control when you're using charcoal as opposed to when you're using pencil, and you can't erase either. Still, I am looking forward to this assignment in hopes that it will help me grow as an artist and step out of my comfort zone.

Just a little practice
