Bhrazz's DSP // 1y!
...and here is the full year.
So I have been drawing my self portrait for 32 day's now. At first, I didn't know how far I wanted to bring this and then I figured out it was a very good exercise to do it daily. Call me a poser if you want, but when I came across Android poster I couldn't pass on this one. So thanks to Android for influencing me on this one
What is so good about this, is I make sure I draw daily, it practice visual perception and it turned out to color practice and learning painter at the same time. It is very rewarding. Now my only regret is I should have started this when I first started to draw a couple of months ago, to see the real evolution from zero. I'll be a couple of months late!
Anyways, this is how I usually proceed:
Wake up and pop a cup of coffee.
I always start with a sketch on paper drawn from the mirror or from a picture I take when I want a more difficult pose.
Scan and paint!
Now, I'm not so sure how far I want to bring this but I'll update every day I can.
Comments and crits are more than welcome!
32 pics to follow

Thank you Farvus, I guess we will be following each other for a good while
So here it is for today. No time for painting. While looking at my stuff, I still have lots of trouble with nose and lips... Gotta practice more.

I'm kinda out of time these day's due to job hunting and a ahem.. Girls around. Hope you'll enjoy those. I can already see some improvement over the first I did and much more from pencil only. Anyways, here it is
First attemp at caricature. kinda funny
That just a background from a painting I'm doing with acrylics and I painted digitally over.

Good job. I like the last one.
When painting look for planes and where would you put boundary between them. Something like you did on for example day 32. There is well defined structure of the face beacause I can see exactly which surface gets the most light.
The last one has got better colours then previous ones but the planes are too blended and a bit random.
Check out gregpro's paintover to see what I'm talking about - http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=75768
Keep it up. I can also see some improvement

For Day 62... did you draw this from a photo or in the mirror? And if you did it in the mirror, how did you split your face like that while you were drawing it? That's cool...
I like your latest one too, it's calm but sinister... looks like someone who knows his own strength so everyone else knows it too. But the eyes seem to be pointing in slightly different directions, one eye is looking right at me and the other one right through me... or is it just my imagination?

Aw, the eyes aren't f-ed up at all! It's just so tricky to draw eyes, because if they're off by even a millimetre or two, people will see right away that something's not quite on target, but if you make a similar (tiny) mistake with, say, the jawbone, it's much less noticeable...
Anyways this latest portrait is cool, especially the contrast between the warm and cool colours. Looking forward to tomorrow's!

Farvus: It was indeed intended, at first, my head (left) was more a 3/4 view from behind but it was much less apealing.
Arish: thanks, I agree with the eyes, I'm still learning everything and I'll try to be more carefull (or take more time) with that
here is for today, a quickie one i'm on the rush ^^
And WhiteC stole back his wacom!
