Quarantine Portrait Series: Self Portrait, Tilted Head

I’m having fun renewing my acquaintance with sketching. Just a few pencil strokes can shade more effectively than spending lots of time carefully perfecting dark-to-light gradients.  Now, my challenge is to tighten up on the spatial relationships among facial features. If you look back on other quarantine self portraits in this series, you can see that the overall proportions are more pleasing (and they look more like me too).  The sketch below is, perhaps, a bit elongated, with a jaw heavier than it should be.  I’m looking forward to getting it all together.
