A toned self-portrait

Another Betty Edwards self-portrait exercise tonight; this one’s actually a self-portrait of me, using a graphite toned background.

I like the way I was able to get the shading to work with the toned background, and a lot of the details of my face seem right; the glasses, my nose and hairline particularly.

Have you ever tried to record your self-image in an interesting way?
