Self Portrait Project

Since yesterday, I decided to take it upon myself that I wanted to create my self portrait, paint and all. I have been wanting to do this project for quite some time now, since first semester, and now that I have some time on my hands I say, why not?
I prepared the illustration board yesterday, gessoed it and taped the edges, you know the usual. So today, I put down the basic drawing, added some darks and lights to indicate where the shadows and the lights are and all. I'll probably  tweak a few things on my face and hands. However, I think that by tomorrow I will be able to put a wash down and start on some underpainting. Can't wait!

    Thank you.
