    Kvick'z Unofficial Self-Portrait Thread

    Alright, well I feel like I have been an absolute shit in my dedication to art, a few hours a day isn't cutting it and I need to get my ass active.

    This is my unofficial self portrait thread, I'm going to be updating this as well as my original SB thread daily from this day forth, I promise anyone reading that. If I don't, I will compensate appropriately.

    So I went out and bought a makeup mirror to put on my desk so I can feel pretty... and that whole sp thing maybe too.

    here's yesterday, the official start of my unofficial sp thread

    Kvick'z Unofficial Self-Portrait Thread

    and this morning.

    This one was way more fun, though I lost the little likeness that I finally achieved though the color. Little grissaile experiment.

    Alright! now I feel like I'm making some real progress, I signed up for a non-pay project, been doing daily exercises, and just overall enjoying drawing more just because I'm improving faster! Plus this actually looks like me

    love the portraits, your colours are really good, can't wait to see some updates... i would love to see some more intersting poses of the face and some more interesting lighting, but other than that brilliant work keep it up

    man oh man. I feel like I'm improving every time I do these. it's a great feeling. Sadly I didn't get a self-portrait done yesterday, I'll compensate tomorrow.

    But hey I need some advice from anyone who has gotten/gets this. I stopped drawing for a few days because I started getting this pain in the outer ball of my wrist and on the right side of my right hand. Even with breaks I have pain

    anyways, I DID try a self portrait two days ago and I was waaaay too tired hahaha, and maybe on substances

    looks like you've made some good progress already. however it looks like you're diving into detail too fast without measuring or setting up construction. particularly the nose varies in length a great deal from one portrait to the next. the best way i know to get decent nose length and eye position is to imagine(or draw) a triangle going thru the eyes and the nose as in the attached pic. also it s good to know the basic proportions of the face, like the nose will be roughly 1/3 of the total length of the face. well good luck, cant wait to see your progress after 100 or so portraits
