    Hey guys, just wanted to let you know, I'm not slacking on this, the last 3 days have been a WIP for me, I should be finishing soon on the SP I'm working on. It's something that ties into my personal life deeply, so hopefully I will be able to show this SP when it's done. I'm excited, hopefully I can post it very soon. Take care guys.

    Awesome work so far people, really nice stuff being posted here

    Brain - that is interesting how you did your sp. is it done on just textured bg? a little more darks and lights would be nice "imo"

    BH - i can't wait to see your WIP

    jhibbs - nice to see you are back up and running

    Jeff Gran - nice 2 sp's. i like how you used a mixed variety of materials. i do that sometimes too.

    keyth - your style is really smooth and relaxed looking. me like

    Well great work everyone, keep it up. I will post my sp's in a week or so as soon as i get access to the internet besides from the schools comps....

    Its black marker and some white gouache.

    Just finished an SP last night. My first one using painter. Thought this thread looked like the the best place to post this thing and maybe get some crits.

    Everyone's work looks good btw.

    keyth, jhibbs - Nice and moody. Did you guys use PS?

    cire600 - Nice combination of materials.

    Anyway, here's mine.

    Damn... you Keyth Bebop - you locked the August thread... and.. well.. i admit, i'm retarded.
    This is Aug. 31


    JASON - please - don't - i haven't the time to breath lately, let alone drawing - all I manage to draw i upload here - so you can tell i've been bad boy.
    It's also hard to keep it going all alone - lucky i've got you guys.
    I will increase the rate... i WILL...

    (this was done while my girl was getting dressed, i had to go - i would love to have the time to spend more on it- 10-15 min)

    here's my spom...
    it's inspired by the week i just spent as a "working vacation" in the bowels of new orleans.



    that purple is killin me but i'm too tired to fix/finish it

    oblio hi! so glad to see you back!

    bh can't wait to see your latest one

    jhibbs i've really been enjoying your latest portraits...they seem more sophisticated or mature or something than your older ones...i can't quite find the right word for it...

    everyone else great job...these are some really interesting portraits

    Nice work people. cire600, looks awesome, great technique, I might have to try that sometime. crazy paper too, looks almost like cardboard of some kind.

    Here's mine. I think I need to get more contrast in there, but the conte doesn't like to stick to the guache background.

    I have to laugh when I think about how this one came about. It's a story just for me, but the lessons I learned were great.

    crap crap crap - but i thought to revive the spirits in this area a bit :p



    uuuhhh.. crazy Ilex is back. Wild... (so.. what's gonna be your next SP challenge?)

    Jhibbs - kicking ass at the same rate, friend. Lovely work. My next one WILL have a gun. ANYONE care to join me for a DUEL? :machinegu

    Jeff Gran - uh.. yes.. contrast. Although more work to the rendering would do you good i think.Play light and shadows... you know.. keep em comin'

    BH - i don't know your secret but.. YOU'RE SMILING! And that's a rare to you lately.. so... welcome back
    x: :chug:

    endregan - mate, try to simplify the shape. Work only with straight lines, make it look.. low poly. Use a marker or something that will force you to think the line twice before drawing it since you can not erase.
    Also.. place a lamp with strong light on a side and create a big contrast on your face - light and shadow. The try just to reproduce the big "splashes" of light and shadow. 2 values only.
    Your main goal shoul be to improve your FORM, the drawing should have a 3d feeling, and to clean your line (it's a bit hairy if you know what i mean)
    also...

    There are severall tutorials for beginers on the forum related to SP. Jon Foster covers the axis, light shadow, KChen has some, Andrew has a nice approach... dig a little.
    Looking forward your next!

    I've been soul searching the last month and an epiphany struck me tonight. I couldn't help but smile and smile wide. It felt great. I think I understand why I do these self-portraits now, it's to share moments like this with you guys and to save it for myself.



    Oblio - Indeed, it is extremely rare to see me smiling. My job requires me to smile all the time, even to assholes and any other prick that comes into the bar. But these last two were genuine, I think I'm finally beginning to understand some things.

    Endregan - Thanks bud

    Hey BH that smile looks good on you!! Your face looks a little off center "imo"; good stuff BH can't wait for more.

    Groover - nice to see a new face around here. good work as well

    galvatar - holding the mirror you are a trooper i must say. i tried that before and it didn't work to well for me hehe.

    Oblio - nice one it is pretty good. you know what i think you should try doing. Maybe you should try not focusing so much on your eyes nose and mouth so much and build up your values equally. That is what my instructor told me amognst many other bad habits i need to correct. I like your attention to details!

    off to school and draw all day/night
