Blind Contour Self Portrait


This was one of the exercise we’ve done for Beverley Ransom‘s wonderful Drawing for 3D Modelling and Animation -course. Blind Contour is a drawing technique where you draw the contour of an subject – in this case my own face – while you’re not allowed to look at the paper. You can look at your drawing only when repositioning the pen. I absolutely love this technique. It’s so much fun. And the self portrait turned out freaking awesome.
