I came across this self-portrait by talented artist 'Fatigued'[link]
whilst searching DA with one of my favourite words 'Melancholy'
it wasn't just the title that made me want to draw it, the eyes, the darkness and the emotion expressed through the photograph are what encouraged me to put pencil to paper.
I hope I have done the photograph justice, and that you like it.
