mc2mc2: I know just what you're talking about...sometimes you can just tell when something is accurate, even if you've never seen the real person. I should consider putting a real photo up here somewhere...maybe around 50...

I hate drawing the dark side of my face...which is why I do this...no real strong light source...maybe this is a bit advanced for me...I had to make it a quickie...kind of lost anatomy here...
killart: Haha, well thanks for that continued support, I appreciate it!

Hmmm...I tried using the artist oils brushes in painter X...they're interesting...but I don't think I should use them straight... they're just a little clumsy for me and I haven't quite gotten the hang of tweaking them...so I went and reverted back to a boring brush for this one...graytones...maaan...I guess this is just a study in digital technique.

Virus: Hey thanks for stopping by again!
Yeah I was messing around with the artist oils a bit more today...I'm starting to understand them a bit but I can't quite get them to do everything I want them to...perhaps in time.
Just a bunch of different brushes today. I need to get a brush that can help me simulate pores.

hi sketchtethetht! your self portraits are getting really good. one question i want to ask you about is where do you put your mirror? and how do you keep your pose/ face in place haha.
i did my first SP last night and i was like omg moved a bit so might've screwed my eyes / nose up, and damn my neck was tired from trying to not move at all (just moving eyes XD)
keep it up!

Man... your digitals rock as much as your pencil ones. Gotta start doing digital stuff too... anyway, keep it up!

dlquddnr: Hahaha, thank you, sir. Hahaha, I put my mirror right to the left of my monitor with a lamp shining right in my face so that I can see planes and little subtleties a little more clearly...
It sounds like a difficult task doing it that way! I understand what you're trying to do though, keep your head still so it's more like you're drawing a still life and everything, things won't move, you can keep your measurements accurate and things.
Unfortunately, a moving subject is just something you'll have to deal with. I move a _lot_ while I'm doing these because I'm usually distracted or just can't sit still. Moving can help you understand what you're drawing better too. Sometimes I just have to examine my nostrils to make sure I know how they're curving and stuff...Just keep drawing and keep checking yourself so you remain consistent with your subject matter. Thanks again. Sorry for the novel I've written...
Imaginary: Haha, aww, flattery! Nah, I think my digitals have a loooong way to go. But you know, just doing this every day? You really do improve whether you like it or not, kinda cool...
