One of Mike's and one of mine

Firstly a study of a Michelangelo self portrait - just a warm up really as I havent drawn for a while. Would have prefered some sharper tools to get closer to the look of the original but sitting up in bed isnt the route to accuracy either. The second sketch is from a photo on my bedside table, also done propped up in bed and the errors scream at me but it was a useful study of shadows and has inspired me to attempt a top notch accurate master study at some point. The perfectionist in me finds it hard not to twiddle things to death sometimes so I may as well direct that urge more productively.
