    Sudsy's Self Portrait work

    Here are my first few attempts at a self portrait using a photo reference from my first trip to Iraq a couple years ago... Every time I try to do this picture, something just doesn't turn out right... Its almost as if my ego doesn't like my own portrayal of myself... I plan to attempt more with different settings and more detail on the face itself instead of being buried in body armor and gear!

    I'm using the GIMP ( and a Wacom Intuso 3 tablet (which is why I use GIMP, spent all money on tablet...). Mostly I use they're version of the pencil tool on an 8 1/2" x 11" canvas, and I haven't experimented with much beyond the circle shaped brush for the pencil or blender (smudge) tool... Still in the armature stages having fun when I'm not working or chasing my kids around the house! Professional advice would be welcome!
