Default I feel funny posting this...

I do. I've never done a self portrait before, but really wanted to try it out. This is the result - of course, I had to include my little JRT. I'm pretty happy with it. Brandy turned out great, the sweater that I'm wearing looks a little funny, it was bunchy and dark in the ref. photo, but I may have made it too bunchy, and perhaps made too much of it up. Oh well, thanks for looking, let me know what you think.

I think you got the most important stuff

rock on..i have never had the guts. I think a few practices of sheets draped and use ink washes will help you get the feel of material and drapery. We had to do it a dozen times... I seriously don't know what i really look like. WHen i look in the mirror i that me? Which is why i have avoided the self portrait. Your brave.
