Life Drawing - Self Portrait #4

So I know I said I don't want to spend more than 2 hours on these studies....but I really want to put a bit more time in on this one as I really like the textured background and how it effects the portrait. 

My proportions are off again, argh, why don't I notice how off things are when I am doing the block in ;) I still have the deer in the headlights look but maybe that won't go away no matter how many of these I do, oh well.  If I can just stop making my nose way too long I think it will help immensely :)

So I will work on it a bit more tomorrow and post hopefully a more natural looking update.  I did try the charcoal but did not like the texture again.  I will have to try playing with charcoal on a separate sheet for a while before diving into a portrait I think.
