Allan: Too kind, man...too kind. I look forward to seeing it!
I officially have PaperX and LINRAN to thank today. PaperX for being multilingual and LINRAN for being a genius. Basically if you haven't already, you should check out PaperX's translation of LINRAN's light and color theory tutorial thing. It's kickawesome.
Tried a different brush today...used painterX but did use the color selector, instead, I used the RGB selectors...I really felt like I could get way richer tones that way...kind of strange. I'll have to continue working with it too see what more I can learn. Thanks to the both of you.
This may not be the best likeness but I was able to get some simple color down, that was nice.
PaperX: Thanks man, I really appreciate the comment and once again, thanks for the tutorial translation.
Wow...recession into crappy drawing. Sorry... I haven't had enough time outside of studio painting to spend time on my drawing...
sandeepbarot: Thank you for the feedback and thank you for taking a look!
QETALIVAN: I'm glad you like them! Any critiques?
Oh man. This is so much better than yesterday. I'm glad I spent a little more time on it. Feels like redemption.
Still, I wish I'd taken more time on some parts...like my teeth. Cleaned them up. Ahh...can't win them all.
I could really use some criticisms, if any of you want to spare some. Thanks!

i guess the only thing left to crit you on is the small things now, heh...
the nose looks off center, but i might be wrong, the lighting could make it look like that, but the nostrils look off to the rest of the face.
the eyes are fantastic, push your drawings in value to match the value depth you got with the eyes? great as always though, keep it up. =)
Virus: Always a great time when you crit, thank you man. I'll definitely focus on those things next time I work, just to make sure I don't get out of hand again.
Also I think you're right on the value, I think that even if I don't finish the face entirely, I should definitely at least demonstrate full range of depth in what I do work on. Thanks again!
Today I lost my light source...so I tried to BS it...but then I decided that was bad. so I stopped. Also...I look not like myself.
Huge improvements, man. You're great
Virus: Haha, yeah...the emo one's not so hot...I should really do them all as pencil renderings...or if I'm not going to render, I should make a strong attempt at doing something else with my pencils...distinctly different, anyways. So...uhm yeah. The pose is that way because I had my face practically touching the mirror to the left of me as I drew in my friend's room.
Aaron Death: No, you're great.
Quickie! I feel like grayscale today.
great thread man ... the color studies are kicking my head in and the digitals, pencils are rocking .. great to see these oils ... keep em coming
man , your painting enlighten me !
apple-juice: Kind words! Thank you!
Arish: You know, you're right about those expressions...I need to do that again.
Today I was reacquainting myself with digital painting...it's been a while. I was trying to just select my colors using the RGB sliders in painterx...no eyedropper...it's hard, but works much better than the color selector for many reasons...
algenpfleger: You feel my pain! Hahaha...yeah...it is a subtle thing. I've found that a sort of fusion of the two is nice. I use the color picker to get the general range, and then I do little tweaks to get exactly what I want. It's nice.
marker. Ugh. Took too long. I had to restart three times. Bad sketching day. Suck.
Awesome man! I love the marker one, makes me wanna go out and buy some markers myself. Nothing really strikes me as wrong with it so unfortunately i don't have anything to crit.
