these last two are looking better!! the proportions are starting to look much more like yours! keep it up!
hey, nice studies over here =) i know for exeperience that keep working of the same work can became frustrating, boring etc... but its something you really need to do so you can take your work a litle more further. try to do that litle by litle. eitherway good work, and keep it up =D
Call0ps - Nice of you to drop by, sir! Thank you!
sketcheth - Thanks dude, glad to hear from you that i've improved.
It's so hard to paint without my spectacles when the mirror is far away. And GODS i am getting chubbeh. Nevermind, the fasting month starts tomorrow! (:
Hopefully, less lazing around and more art!
Yo redhead ! What's up ? you're improving ! Just be carreful you're painting eyes too big ! Eyes are the most important part, and if you don't do them right, your portrait will lack of " life" ! Keep it up ! I'm loking forward to see the next piece ! I hope you're at least drawing a bit everyday ! See you !
Cool Shamandalie. These last two are a real jump up. Keep it up and constant improvement is guarenteed. Hey I envy you. You have Zal to teach you stuff whenever you want!!
Walid D - Thanks for the critique dude. I try to draw a bit everyday.
jigje - He can teach me, but whether i understand and practice enough is something else. @_@
Today i present you a crappy piece. It's so hard to paint with only one eye. I don't know what's wrong with my right eye. First, there was a dried spot below that eye, and now for the past 2 days, it's really painful and itchy. It's red most of the time, and i can't go to the doctor cause i'm dead broke till my next pay. -_- sigh, so sorry.
Will pick up the pace again when i am better.
love #post 121 gd job one capturing the likelyness of how you look,you almost nail the proportion wonderfully , good job dear. dont paint when you are not capable to push yourself, rest and do a better job the next time.
*borat voice*veryyy niceeeee
The only real failure is the failure to try
zalxemptyx - YAY, thanks for dropping by, my no. 1 fan.
Andy Nicho - Glad to hear that. Thank you!
cdejong - Thank you to you too!
Tried to color the way Jason Chan colors in his tuts. Kinda major fail. @_@
Try and try again. NEXT!
Hey, thats a really different style from you Shamandalie. Cool to change things up like that. I like the way you did the hair and I love that you have so much selfportrait enthusiasm, with your own and supporting others as well.
Did you have that comment under your name before I said you were little?
jigje - Thank you. Oh yea, i am relatively normal here not short. zalxemptyx is considered REALLY tall here, so you being a teeny taller than him, you are now officially a giant!
Thanks once again for dropping by.
Today. Actually i'm in no mood to paint anything actually. My grandma is finally back from the hospital, but she is terminal so i'm very sad.
Don't wanna paint my face. It's terribly ugly with red patches and flaky skin. Was in the hospital for 3 days. Too much air-conditioning does that to me. @___@
no87 - thanks dude, but now i have no hair!
Walid - Thank you mr. R&B.
Haven't been updating. My grandma passed away. I so don't feel like doing anything lately, but since i've shaved my head, i thought it was a time for another self portrait.
Gotta work harder now, the fact that i have to paint proper ears and head. No more hiding behind hair. D:
Shamandalie, you have a nice head!! Definitely time for an update on "What does everyone look like".
That's a good idea, I hate drawing hair. I might try that. Heh heh.
Demi Moore in GI Jane, Sinead O'conner and now Shamandalie.
I really need to learn how to paint hair. D:
On a brighter note, I HAS NEW JOB! I'm starting in November. Haven't been posting much art cause i'm studying how to do good digital retouching, it has to do with my next job. Take care people!
Awesome Sham, a new job?? Cool, I bet that's a load off your mind. If you have trouble with hair, just shave it off. Oh, hang on, you tried that already. Heh heh. Well done.
I'm sorry for missing out for the last 2 months!
Work have been a little crazy for me lately.
This thread will resume daily posts on 1st Jan 2010.
until then, happy early birthday to me, happy holidays and
happy early new year!!!
This is all i can offer today. I have been working non-stop (the frigging 1st, today) and i am still working. I kinda wanna scream "WHAT HOLIDAY??!!" when people come up to me and ask me what i was doing during my holiday. Seriously, i hardly have any.
bad start to a new year. i really hope things will pick up from here.
