A close up from the WIP

I drew around 20 sketches from a mirror that I fixed to a tripod and flag holder (lighting equipment) like I was holding it. I've painted and scraped this painting like 5 times over. I've tried different techniques with photos, projection, perspective grids but I couldn't paint with any of them so I started with the old fashion paint what you see by eye..

Painting yourself from a mirror is really hard :)
