Jussi Tarvainen portrait progress
Okay so here's my go at it for daily self portraits. All of these will be made by looking at myself from the mirror. No photo references. I would love to hear some creative criticism and you can be as straight as you want with me

Aha! So you've been doing those in secret and now throw all of em at us at once! Surprise!
Great to see you doing this man. Really digging the different mediums and the lines, especially #4 has nice flowing lines.
However, I'd suggest you concentrate more on the bone structure of the face and facial muscles than the features themselves. that makes a huge difference (not that I'd do that right, but yeah you get the idea ) Keep it up man!!

Hah haa, naah I actually had these at my "learning process" thread but decided move them here so it was easier to follow the process.
Thanks Algenpfleger. I'll try to use different mediums except I'll stay away from colors.
That's a good idea. I think I'll start by drawing my skull first and then draw everything on top of it.
Cheers Ronald! I will definitely plan to keep this up forever can't wait for the 365 drawing

So todays portrait has the skull underneath. Thought I'd draw the skull first and then the skin on top of it. Upper half of the head is too small though. This was a fun exercise and I'm going to learn the muscles next and use a tracing paper. Firs draw the skull on the sketchbook, then put tracing paper on top and draw the muscles with red and at last put another tracing paper on top and draw the skin and hair on top of the muscles. Will be interesting. There's so much to learn and I don't want to get too frustrated so it might take a bit before I'm going to try this. Need to learn the skull and muscles first.

Yayo, busted out another one. I really like doing these mixed portraits where I draw the skull first and then on top of it I draw the skin. Though the results aren't the best cause I don't have muscles in between but I'm looking into that tomorrow. Need to get tracing paper too so it's easier to draw the different phases. Pikaboo there's the ear too. I've always been afraid of them but it was actually very interesting to draw the ear as well.

Okay this is probably 80minute one. I learned a lot during making this one. I laid out core shadows first the started working on it. Had a bit of a problem with the eyes though and again forgot to look at it from the mirror until I was done. Need to remember to do that. This is on A3 size paper.
Any feedback on this one?

really like how their comming along i only have 2 suggestions sometimes your eyes and mouth end up on the same plane and the eyes should be deeper in the skull but u seem to b fixing that and your eyes either seem too high up or the skull isnt round enough. but u seem to be getting the hang of it keep it up
