Self Portrait by Xiloria Self Portrait by Xiloria
A self portrait that I had to do for my art final. It was mandatory to use a mirror for this project. 
This was done on white charcoal paper that was 24x18
I used Charcoal and White Conte for the highlights~ Enjoy
Edit : I'm really flattered with some of the comments you guys have given me. I love you all honestly! 
Edit 2: What I actually look like can be found here : xiloria.deviantart.com/journal…

It still does happen from time to time it's just that I work carefully. Other times I just put down a small piece of paper where my hand can rest so that it doesn't smduge. Thanks for the compliment!

What a wonderfully executed self portrait! Easily the best work featured in your gallery - though I suspect with work like the above, you're online gallery is only a fraction of your output :)
