    Noooo, don't burn out! >.<

    Your SPs are coming along nicely although i still think you should spend some more time on them, you'll learn so much more if you do.

    i love seeing everybody do one a day, but i gotta say, quality over quantity. if you feel the self portraits are slipping a bit, maybe take a day or two off to relax and get a fresh perspective? that last one is a nice one =)

    for your sp's that are mostly just line, watch for the line weight. you had a couple of heavy lines around your eyes in a few, and if they weren't so thick, they would've described the form better. keep it up =)

    *ViRuS* - Thanks alot, i also do realize that my SPs are slipping cause i've been pushing even though i don't have the time. Quality is definitely more important that quantity. And i know that my pencils are horrible, so i think i gotta improve on that too. Thanks for popping by!

    Today, with charcoal pencils. I gotta go back to the basics. The reason why there are lines on my cheek is due to the fact that my kitteh bit my face when i was sleeping. It still stings a little. -__-

    You are diligent!! Wow! You've got tremendous improvements going through this thread...awesome work... try some more of those pencil drawings, I like what you're doing there, I'm starting to see features get sharper and sharper!

    The digital paintings are also looking much improved as well! It might serve you to take a photo of yourself and spend some time using the color dropper and just study the color that occurs in your face, you might be surprised at the colors you find in shadows and things. Then try to take that knowledge and apply it to a painting. Another thing that I found to help is to study the masters and how they paint, how they choose colors. Look at John Singer Sargent.

    I'll be coming back to this thread for sure.
    Also, congrats on hitting the 50 mark! **high five**

    sketcheth - I honestly think i don't deserve that compliment! Thank you so much, you are a morale booster. I've heard what you say, and i am going to try that on my next sp. Thanks once again!

    This is me still struggling to draw/hatch. I realise that the more i draw, the more i'm afraid of making marks on the paper. I want everything to come out perfect the first time. No more everyday SPs already due to work, but i will not abandon this thread fer sure!

    i can see you getting better, keep it up and yo'll be improving in no time.

    whats the average time you're spending on them?
    i'd suggest maybe taking an afternoon out and spend about 2 and a half hours on one in whatever medium is most comfortable, try and do your utmost best and dont be afraid to erase and fix as you go along.

    all the best
    chris

    zalxemptyx - Thank you dear, yea it seems that whatever i paint looks like one massive blob. @_@ i will take note of that.

    chriis.zed - Thank you! Usually i spend about half and hour on them. Damn my short attention span. I will take some time to draw them when i have the time. Thanks for popping by!

    Okay this is a failed CHOW, but since it's some sort of self portrait, i'll put it here. I was trying to paint myself as a super demon from the supernatural series. Of course there were much *cough* enhancements, but i got really busy and tired so i abandoned it.
