Summer Man (self-portrait)

Black pen on paper + colouring in Photoshop.

This one is based on a photo taken this summer. Decided to draw a “kind of self-portrait” while suffering a slight lack of inspiration. :)



About Micke Nikander

Hi! I'm a graphic designer and artist from Finland. I like creating pictures from scratch as much as documenting the wonders of the world through a lens. No, actually I like drawing more.. :) -Micke


  1. I like! Nice line work, nice use of dark areas, and an overall nice capture. In a world of overdone self-portraits (and in the American art school, the self-portrait is the ultimate pressure test), it’s nice to see simple, yet very charismatic self-portraits. Well done!

    • Hi!

      Thanks for the nice comment!

      I think it turn out quite nice too. I rarely draw this type of “realistic” stuff nowadays. But it’s good to draw in different styles and try to stay versatile. :)


  2. Hey man, that´s a good one!
    Unmistakably you…pretty cool, too!

  3. Tää on kyl tosi upee kuva! :D
