Self Portraits for the heck of it

The class I am sitting in on (sort of - because they are drawing 1 students I am so -called (?) advanced) is doing self portraits in the style of... So I couldn't resist dusting off my charcoal and trying a couple of self-portraits in the style of Kathe Kollwitz. (She is amazing and I am a very cheap imitation - but here is what I came up with.)

I used watercolor paper to give it texture, but I don't love it somehow.

Here is my second attempt.

There is something I like about this one as unflattering as it is, even though it isn't terribly like Kollwitz.
