Self Portrait with Magpie by RedgoldsparksPress Self Portrait with Magpie by RedgoldsparksPress
I did a new self-portrait. I wanted it to reflect the style I've been using in my latest chapter of The Thief's Tale. I am very pleased with out it came out, but it might have the unintentional side effect of revealing that 80% of the people I draw look like myself...

This drawing is an update on the "Scribe" portrait I did of myself about a year ago. 

4 x 5 inches, pen and ink

I really like the concept for this one and  it is beautifully executed! The mixture of style associated with medieval depictions of monks combined with a modern figure looks great and the nest in the boy's hood is a wonderful touch that brings an element of magic to the whole piece - well done!

Awww, I am so sorry, how ignorant of me not to have read the description! I am usually worried that people do not read my descriptions and here I am commenting without reading the text below the image - I am very sorry! The important point, however, is that I really like this work and you look really wonderful here - studious, smart and charismatic - honestly!

Thank you very much :) I sit still in the same position for so long the magpie has no need to move her nest...

I like the fact that you portrayed yourself as a (modern) amanuensis! :D
Very interesting style... ;)
