Today's portrait is a little unique in the sense that it's actually the "sketch" for the one I will do tomorrow. This was not originally intentional; it simply occurred to me that this one could stand on its own as one of my self-portraits.
While it's clearly not my best effort or even close to my favorite in this entire project so far, I am very fond of the loose, spontaneous style of this drawing. I have always enjoyed working in that manner, and I don't forsee ever abandoning that method of drawing on occasion.
