Self portrait drawn using a photo and the grid method.
I don't like working this way, it seems like it was all we did in high school drawing classes. I find it mindless because it's just copying contours and values. All the work of figuring out how render a 3D object in 2D has already been done by the camera. It is useful for making an accurate reproduction of something, thus it looks exactly like me.
