Self-Portrait by jjkiefer Self-Portrait by jjkiefer
Pencil and charcoal drawing. I chose this pose to reflect an difficult time in my life to remind me to never forget life's hurdles. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel if we just choose to look for it.

Very few people figure that out.  They just think I'm too lazy to clip my nails.  Not sure what you mean by the ref picture.  Thanks so much for the fave!  Cheers!

Thanks! It was the first time I used charcoal as an undercoat on the darker areas. I discovered it gave the skin more texture as well!
