Drawing myself / 画自己

Before drawing the Buddha, I have tried drawing myself, something which I have also failed many times.

When I was practising how to draw myself, I found my own process of drawing, which is different from most of the YouTube videos that I have watched

From the internet, I learned that drawing the shape of the head is the first step but when I tried it out, I couldn’t draw proportionately.

Therefore, I tried to start with the eyes, nose and mouth first, and from there, I could then gauge size of the head and proceed from there.

My daughter always said that my drawing of the face is too long, which is something I agree, even till now. And so I practised and practised and with that, I completed the drawing of myself, not perfect but good enough.

The face is still too long, but from the video it looks not that bad. I guess it’s a perspective issue and I am satisfied with how it looks like on the screen. Is that trying to comfort myself to feel better? Haha!

在画佛之前,我一度挑战一个我失败好几次的图画,那就是自己的画像。

那个时候,我找到了自己画头像的步骤,与网络所教的有些不同。根据YouTube视频的教导,第一个步骤应该是画整个头的形状,可是当我跟着做的时候,却总是把一张脸画得大小不均衡。

于是,我决定开始从眼睛,鼻子,嘴巴画起,才能估计整个头的大小。

女儿经常告诉我我画的头像总是把脸拉得太长,时至今日仍然如此,我也不否认。但是我并不气馁,有时间就重画再重画,直到我终于可以画一张还算过得去的自己的头像。

其实这张图的脸仍然太长,但是在视频上由于角度的关系,看起来还蛮均衡的,这也算是自欺欺人吧?哈哈!
