Okay, in my Art 2 class, we've been given an assignment to draw "oneself as other". 
Meaning create a self portrait with the characteristics of a person u look up to. 
I chose Cristobal Balenciaga! Simply because he went for nothing, to becoming the center of attention of Royal  Spaniards who wore his designs. 
So, ive been practicing in my bathroom mirror, when i thought to myself, this would be so much easier if i could stay still. 
So i decided to take a picture, and then draw myself from the picture. Is that cheating?? Well, i think it came out nice, so its okay. 

This is the original picture I took, the cliche Facebook teenager pose. 

And this is my drawing. I got some red watercolor on the side of it because it was laying on my desk, but, happy mistakes! While drawing this I was Thinking of "Katniss: the girl who was on fire"-from the hunger games. Since her being from a coal district, i mostly used pencil and just a little color for my skin tone. I think i did pretty darn good! Dont you?
