    Really nice self portrait! Something about the cheeks look a bit flat to me though. And also I think that big bright area around the head is a bit too big and maybe too bright. It's a bit distracting. Maybe you should crop it a bit around that part.

    i've been meaning to comment here for like two weeks now!!! i really like the fruit still life...although it looks like theres an image in the upper right that you incorperated...i think it draws focus away from the center objects.....
    As far as the self portrait goes. i know your fully developed but the head to canvas ratio is IMP off. my eyes start at your face but than imediatly drift into the lighter backround i think you should add something like an elegantly frammed picture/mirror behind the head....at a darker value than the face.. pulling the viewers eyes inwards....as far as the face goes there are these cresent shaped lines for the cheek bones, to me they are to present....they cut off the top half off the face there has to be more middle ground (tone) there.....not that you asked.....yeah i'm just gonna go now love ya!!!!buh-bye

    I have chipmunk cheeks, especially when I grin. Haven't posted for a bit because I've been busy recoding my website and a couple of other things.

    I will be getting back to the above self portrait, but here are two more I've done.

    This one is acrylics on canvas and I decided to have some fun with it - I seem to be smoking a bit. Done in one day from mirror.

    And this the one done today. It started out as a pencil drawing, but I sort of rubbed through the paper, so I took it into PhotoPlus to repair it and play around with. Drawn from a photo.

    Excuse me, ma'am. Is it just my monitor, or the acrylic painting was really dark... O.o

    Nice job on the pencil drawing, but it seems too "blurry" because of all the soft edge and lack of hard edges. Is it because the accidentally rubbed-through-the-paper hehehe

    Theres an interesting feel of your first self portrait in #1073, but Your second one is really accurate. Maybe just a few more edges will make it jump.

    I meant to post my pencil one and the reference. I did give myself a slightly different expression to the ref.

    Good evening.
    You are back, with a more improved features.
    That is more than good.
    I would like to discuss a little bit
    about this last graphite pencil drawed
    self portrait;
    You are right, you did not nailed the
    same expression, as it is on the photo,
    but I think that the main reason for that is
    cause you layed the shadows a little differetnly
    than they are on the photo. Talking about
    the shadows, I think that you should have gone
    far more darker with the whole drawing and maybe
    to do a bigger contrast. The hair is much
    much darker in real than on the drawing.
    Maybe converting the photo to grayscale,
    in some photo editing software before starting,
    would help you to see more clearly the things
    that you should focus on.
    The eyes are slightly out of therir place, the one
    on the drawing, the right eye (from the viewers
    position) is higher than it should be, and
    I am not sure but it seems that the space between
    the eyes are wider than it should be.
    The right eye, is also much bigger than the left,
    as that is not the case on the reference.
    I think these issues would be solved with more
    human eyes, head and human skull studying.
    Hope that the above pointouts will help
    you in your next face drawing.

    Overall, you did this piece pretty good, a
    little more practice and experience, and
    you will be more than outstanding in the
    waters of realistic pencil drawing.

    Nice to meet you.
    I mean seeing your photo is like a
    meeting occasion.

    Really interesting!
    Much what Plissken already said, maybe do some head anatomy studies in between your selfportraits so you can use what you've learned more directly.
    Keep it up!

    I've not been posting much because I've been animating - badly. The bits I'm doing are for the background people and they're not very important, so ideal for practice. Also received an upgrade for Serif DrawPlus, which I won and not all the buttons are in the same place.

    Cool animation, Black spot. It's interesting watching you put all the pieces together. Can't wait for the final project to see how it all fits.
