    sketchETH's dailies - one year. +3

    Well, it's about time, really...I've sat by the wayside as others have begun their own self portrait missions and I really think I have enough inspiration bottled up inside of me to just let it loose and do some real work. Plus, I have some goals, and actually doing this sort of daily work will be great for me. Yep. I'm doing this at least for the entire month of December, I figure by the end it will just be habit and I'll keep going because it'll feel good.

    Thanks for stopping by,
    eth.

    Fitzin: Thanks my friend!! I think I pushed the values much more on this last one, so I'm pleased with that...I love rendering because I feel like I'm learning as I draw...it's just so different than my regular technique, I can feel the improvement. It's lovely.

    I'm also exercising my digital abilities...I was trying to do a digital self portrait today in painter just using one brush...I feel like I'm getting closer with color accuracies, and I like the technique here...but my proportions and everything were so off...I didn't want to continue.

    Uhm...yeah...couldn't update yesterday because my monitor broke! Cheap button interface on it...I had to take it apart and repair it but couldn't buy tools for it.
    I tried to try for a dramatically different style yesterday...really push soft shading and rendering...but I really don't like it...so we'll try again and see what happens some other time, but today I went back to normal. I'm liking this much better...proportions are soooo much better. Yep.

    Oooh my! Like the technique/painterly feel with that one. Keep exploring those tones!

    Here's todays...don't really like diving in with ink...I think I'll keep pursuing it though. It doesn't give me a chance to correct the little mistakes...which turn into big mistakes. Ah well.

    Fitzin: Thanks! Will do!

    Today's portrait
    30 minutes in painter...I should use color next, I think...terrifying thought.

    Imaginary: And they're making me think I should use a broader spectrum of values! I think it's very easy to get narrow-minded and stay in one value range...it's a trap.

    You're DOING it man! Awesome! Your values are getting a lot better, you finally seem to have gotten over those black edges. The last one has great colors. Keep going here man, I'll be watching
