I like lines. I like imperfection.
I drew parallel-ish lines with Sharpie on some cling wrap and taped it around my head. I cut an air hole over my mouth and breathed in through my nose to make a vacuum between the cling wrap and my face. I took a photo and traced the lines onto 8.5x11 paper with a Pilot V-Pen (cheap fountain pen), until it ran out and I used a Micron .05 pen. I didn’t light the reference photo well at all, so there was a lot of guessing in the tracing. I was also considering making a topological map of my face, but that meant drawing on the cling wrap while it was on my face, which made my eyes dry out because of the vacuum. I also had to guess at where the elevation loops would be, which didn’t work very well. I also drew a half moustache on myself through the air hole by accident.
