Hi, my name is Daisy, I'm an artist. And I'm going to show you how to draw self-portraits. So the best thing to do with this is use a mirror or take a photo on your computer so you can see yourself. I'm going to start with a circle for the top of the head. Now I have kind of a long face. I'm going to come down to the bottom. A couple of lines for my neck. And I'm going to draw two lines across the face which is my nose and eye line. Now you'll find your ears do sit at the top of your eye line. I'm just going to draw a couple of ears in there. And a bit of a long nose. And I have pretty small eyes so a lot of this is about looking at what you have. Figuring out what is, what features make you stand out. And I have little thin lips. And then my main features would be my glasses. So we are going to draw a big square glasses. And I like to simplify so I'm just doing simple lines. And then I have longish blonde hair so I'm going to part it in the center. Can fall down over my face. Do some strands. And then I usually wear it in a ponytail so I like to draw ponytails that come out the back. I have a lot of hair. And then eyebrows. Just get rid a couple of these lines. And you can shade or do whatever detail you like until you are happy with it. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw self-portraits.
