    one more portrait

    Giorge - thanks for the comments, I definitely would love to get more life drawing in. Now that I just got a car again, I should be able to attend sessions more! Yay!

    Localfatheaded - thank you!

    I have one more portrait to add today, I like this one for some reason - maybe because it is more loose, maybe I am just tired. Who knows. Thoughts and comments are appreciated.

    Really liking all the recent ink portraits - the latest one is my favorite, also like the first one you posted on the 27th - they have a nice solidity to them, and interesting eyes.

    portrait for today! my roomie lisa!

    mischevious - Thanks! I usually DO work in color, but these are just quickies. I'll have some color stuff to post soon


    Today I wasn't going to post because I had SO MUCH other stuff to do, but once I sat down to do this I had to finish. Today's portrait is of my roomie Lisa!

    Unfortunately I won't have time to post tomorrow because I'm in 2 art shows, but if you're in Vegas and you check out First Friday - say hello to me! I'll probably be toting these portraits along.

    I'll be hanging a piece @ the BIGGS Studio for the Twisted Fairytales show, and also be showing along side Crystal Taylor (of Retina Confection) @ Gargoyle's Damnation Studios - which is inside Commerce Street Studios! Hope to see you there!

    Daily portrait - "Lisa" (again!)

    Ok so I decided to do my friend Lisa again because the first one I did of her didn't really feel like it was "her" to me... It was on the 2nd day I started doing them - anyways, I like this one MUCH better...

    I'm still really enjoying all of the portraits. The proportions look a bit off on "Angela" though (chin too small, nose too long). "Mindee and Jason" is great, and I like the facial expressions of "Shinesfresh" and "Luis Ferrnando Camacho". You've got some cool blues in there and I wouldn't mind seeing some warmish hues to offset them in areas (light sepia washes maybe?), though I've got no idea about the restrictions of the media (there's always photoshop I guess).

    Today's portrait - "King James"

    Puck - thanks! Yeah I find myself getting bored with the restrictions already actually haha. I will probably be moving on to color or different media soon...

    Today's portrait is of "King James" - a friend of a friend who sent me his face to use! I didn't get a chance to scan the line work, and I didn't use acrylic on this one either. I actually like this one without it. I think the values are ok enough to stand on their own in the first pass...

    ummm so here i am again

    Its been a while, hasn't it?

    A lot of stuff has happened - to sum it up, I've moved into my own apartment/studio, I've been working full time as an art framer, and I'm still getting my illustration/fine art career off the ground. I've been working my ASS off.

    But that's not really why I'm posting. Because of International Portrait Month, and the El Coro download, I've been inspired to attempt doing traditional oil portraits. I'll be posting in that thread and this one as well. I'm hoping to post one a day.

    So here's the first one: me!

    This is seriously the first traditional oil portrait I've attempted in YEARS. I have a lot of work to go!!

    Thanks guys!! I'm hoping to upload a few more later tonight. Busy with day job and other work crap!

    Got a few people to send me their pictures so I have about 15 so far. I'm hoping to catch up by the end of the month and have one completed for each day. Sooo if anyone reading this wants their portrait done, send me a jpeg to jska@jskaphobe.com and I'll give you cred and a link to your website/blog (if you have one!)

    More later!
