Yeah, those lucky photographers.
I've gotten caught up in more pressing activities. I just recently got back on this portrait, but I'm having a...
A nude study.
New addition to the collection.
My progress for today.
What I've managed to change, so far.
I shortened the face, as was suggested. This was the most significant change.
Dude, I love collage style sketchbooks. There's just something supremely interesting about it.
I'm bookmarking this sketchbook. :)
Keep 'em coming.
Thanks for the thoughts, sickel.
I'm not going for a direct imitation of the high school photo; I just want to capture the essence of her face. I am using that as the general reference, however. ...
I'm working on a picture of a friend (some photo references included in the above image). Any suggestions on what I can do to...
Great composition on this one. Would you mind if I color it? Once I can find the time, anyway.
Whoa, great atmosphere on this one. It has a real feel to it.

Hot damn, that's certainly something to be proud of! Superb.
Dang. Post some more. I think I'm liking your style.
New for today. Did this one, late last night.
John Lennon joins the sketch book today. I don't like this one too much. I've already picked up on some key errors I've made but I...
Thanks for the ideas, folks.
SillyLing, the chin is actually pretty accurate -- her chin is a little broader than most. I do mean to go back and put a little more definition on it, though. I...
Did this for my fiancee for Christmas, a portrait of her.
And some following self-portraits I've had going, lately:...
I am a psychotic clown.
