    Self-alter Ego-centric-protrait (7 pics and counting...)

    I ve been doing selfportraits for years....usually from memory
    I ve been too lazy for years about copyng from life
    I need to improve my colour knowledge....
    I have seen this forum.....

    now there is no way out.....I need to start my own list of selfportraits....lets see where they lead me, and how much I learn from it. I found the forum tonight, its 2.30 am and I am dying from tiredness...but I made my first one:
    30 sleepy and slow minutes.

    thanks algenpfleger for giving me inspiration!

    lets go!
    I am a busy married man, so I ll try to update once a week.

    Hi people! So today is really my first SF, last night I was more like a zombie....now I see what I uploaded I feel embarrashed a little.
    Well, here we go with my first "concius" sf. It was loooong ago since I tried to make a drawing from life.....and with tonal values......so it took me four times the time I expected.....2 hours and a half.(I wanted to get the face be mine as well, and I got too much into detail)
    Lets see how goes the next one.

    Well, Today I have some problems to focus on my commissions...so I felt like giving another try, I learned so much with the second that I felt the need to start another in the same day, so here we go!
    This time I let my self flow more over the drawing without trying to render everything, and didnt pay so much attention to resemblance.But, curiously, I look a lot more like me in this one(former one I look ten years older) It took 40 min.

    vIRUS: thanks, yeah, I guess the last one was more drawing than painted, and well, I cant scape from my eternal love: comics.
    Today I didnt want to update, I was busy, but I got some brushes...and I found myself doing a portrait, FROM MEMORY this time: 10 minutes.

    Today I decided to clean the dust of my pencils......but couldnt help but enhance the result with photoshop....As usual, the more the rendering(with mores supposed resemblance) the more mistakes I can identify. I post as well another I did last night, again just an excuse to experiment with new brushes and textures....not happy at all with the result.
