Something Different, Day 3 (final)

 'Something Different, Day 3' self-portrait by Julia Kay. Click to view same image larger.Here it is again, one last time. (Click here to see the three stages next to each other.) The changes are mostly at top and bottom - from the filtrum down and from the ears up (mostly just the hair up top). I had to redo the lower right, which I had been perfectly happy with, because some kind of flashing light fuss outside distracted me and my sleeve swiped across and erased it. Well, that's the essential problem of working this way in charcoal - you can get incredible subtly of values but the medium itself is fleeting no matter how much stuff you spray on it - on the sprays change it, too, mostly darkening everything.Detail of 'Something Different, Day 3' self-portrait by Julia Kay.
