    Siggraph asia was a blast! I truly enjoyed it. Got to meet some cool people and learn new stuff. Definitely an eye-opener and inspiration to me. Yep, this industry is really something i wanna do for life.

    Okay, i missed a day, so i'm gonna make up for another one later. My eyes are now red and sore from god knows what and i cant even see properly! I think i'm gonna laugh at this piece when my eyes get better.

    Man, painter is awesome. It's like having all your traditional paints in front of you! Problem is that i have no knowledge of traditional art so every tool is so foreign. I think i am going to stick to only one tool for every paint for my next SPs.

    Hard to understand, but i'm not giving up! So here's my crappy piece.

    hey there

    good studies i know this is sooooo hard!!
    i think this is the hardest thing to do "self portret studies"
    but you will learn alot from it and its verry important!!!

    always look in a mirror!! draw from life don't use pictures
    its good to use pictures when u need some reference
    when u have some amazing idea, but when u draw yourself
    dont use pictures, but a mirror!

    try to have sharp pencils! it works for me you
    can make better and thin lines then.

    use different sorts of pencils! use light one's in the beginning
    then darker ones on top of them!

    try to focus, try to take your time for your lines
    i know its very hard i got troubles with it to, but never give up on it!!

    hope this helps a bit

    `ej - Hey! Thank you so much for visiting my thread. Yep, i understand that drawing from a mirror is so much harder than copying. I do use mirrors now. I suck at rendering/hatching so it's really a pain. I'm hoping to get better though. For using different pencils, i haven't actually tried that, but i will in the future. Time is always not on my side but i won't give up!
    You've helped alot!

    Oh hey, page 2!This is probably the fastest one i did so far. After almost one week of not working, i have a whole stack of updates and reports to do...this is all i can manage.

    Okay, this one was a sob story. I was trying to put more effort into painting, and i was 60% done...it was starting to look good. Hit control+S and...photoshop hung. *MEGA SOBS* Was back to 10% again and i got pissed, so it turned out like this. What luck i have.
    I hope tomorrow's SP will be a little better.

    Okay, i am starting to miss all the life-drawing classes back in school. Tried to sketch this the life-drawing style, holding the pen a different way. Unfortunately erm, it turned out quite bad. I don't think i'll ever get used to the 'use your elbow too' way of drawing. I cut my fringe by the way.

    Good to see that your working hard, i definitely see improvement from your first post! Try spending more time on each SP though and keep an extra eye on the proportions. Keep it up!
