Self-portrait from Coubert

This is my copy of Gustave Coubet’s self portrait.

I don’t like this because he looks creepy all silver. The original must have been done in charcoal. You just can’t get dark enough with graphite. The point of this exercise was to see that our brain can make these odd shapes into a face.
