I've exactly had an experience drawing myself and I've got to say, I actually felt proud of my work and I've made an effort at it. Later on, I'm going to post an image of drawing of myself, so be on the look out. :)
This picture shows color because there is many different colors surrounding the eye. The different colors create a different feeling. When I look at the blue and red its more sad but on the other side with the yellow its brighter and happier.
