This time I ditched the photos and used a mirror instead. Looking at myself in a mirror for this sketching session, felt very different from looking at a photo. The photo allowed me to feel removed from the drawing session, whereas the mirror did not.
Staring at a flesh and blood person, even if in a mirror (and even if it is yourself) made me really think about what I was doing because I was looking at a real person.... It was a very strange experience, but I have to say it was more satisfying/interesting to draw myself using a mirror than using a photo.
This is #7.
