A self portrait from one of my life drawing classes. You can tell that I put a lot of effort into it from the shading... but it's simply not there yet. This was probably one of the earliest drawings I did at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh (and it shows).
The plaid couch on the back was DEFINITELY from my apartment in Pittsburgh. We had a lot of ugly couches back then; usually whatever someone else was throwing out. Gross.
