Self Portrait

I should get this over with. One of these shows up about once per sketchbook...fifty pages or so. This one was originally done with a red mechanical pencil. I do like red lead because it rarely smudges, and can be easily removed later in Photoshop, a feature that makes it particularly useful in under-sketches or quick lay in when I want to work in pen. Its downfalls though are that its a lot less forgiving than normal pencil, which makes it more like working in semi-erasable pen, and it tends to be brittle. This sketch has been changed with the color channels in Photoshop to make it look like normal pencil.
