Expressions by AudreyBenjaminsen Expressions by AudreyBenjaminsen
Well, I'm wrapping up my RISD application this week - yayyy:) I did these self portraits the other day for one of the sides of the 2 sided graphite drawing requirement... question... what should I do on the other side XD ?

I love it :D You have captured something about yourself that I doubt anyone else would have been able to, you obviously know yourself well and it shows. I dont know, something about the openness of the expressions, anyway, keep it up you are an amazing artist :)

This is beautiful! Out of curiosity, do you use reference on your work, or is it all from your head? Also, where do you get your inspiration from?!
I'm a senior looking into illustration and your work has been incredibly inspiring... :D

Your hair + earrings makes this pic so good, they add something no, you work very clean too with the hatching.

Do you remember exactly what paper and pencil you used, it looks creamy like canson paper. Thanks and keep drawing, you are really good at it.

finally, portraits with expressions! Most portraits are very boring because everyone there looks so...serious.
I want to see more of this. :)
