    here's one i did a few months back, maybe in june or july.
    it was a longer pose, and my first real attempt at a self-portrait.
    i figured i'd post it as i haven't done another one yet, and it's interesting to compare it with the last three i've done. the problems haven't been fixed yet. the eyes are still my achilles heal. i'll do my best to fix that next time i draw one.

    I think your eyes need more detail, like a highlight or something, they look kinda dead atm but other then that you seem to be improving.

    We sure could use a photo for comparison though ;P

    yeah. the eyes are dead because they're in shadow all the time. pherhaps i shouldn't light my face like that if i'm trying to learn to draw eyes... heh =)

    Nice work so far! Really nice are you using charcoal in these or are you just blending a lot? What I really like about these is you're not shying away from the subtle facial structure details. Keep that going, and maybe try to really emphasize it for one, take your lamp and put it on the floor shining up in your face, you'll find a lot of things about how planes of your face shift that you didn't know before. Keep up the good work, and thank you for your comments. I look forward to your future work!

    hey! great rendering here.. maybe try using a new medium or facial expression? you've got nice work here but it looks like it needs a little push, it's amazing what using something different to draw with improves your skills with all tools..

    annnnd.. thanks for the comment, i'm looking into entering a student show and decided today that i want to incorporate the tonal work with linear stuff in the piece i'm creating to submit.. nice to hear positive feedback on it

    thanks for the comment amarryth,
    the reason i've kept it all graphite so far was to improve the way i draw. tho i might do a sp in blue lead soon..... maybe.

    im gonna do a new one tomorrow for class, but untill then, here's a lil somthing i had to do for school a while back. mastercopy of a painting, but put my own face on it. i've chosen a painting by odd nerdrum, and i had a lot of fun doing this. here's some shitty pics of it. =)

    i really dig the first pic in the last post.
    looks like you tend to use the symbol for the eye when drawing your sp's.
    seem like front views of eyes, even in your slightly three-quarter angles.
    be sure to draw what you see.

    I really, really like the reds coming through on that last one...it looks like you lost some of the forms of your cheeks in the darkness, but still.
    Also, a thought, when you're drawing these don't forget to flip the drawing around and look at it in the mirror. It keeps things from getting skewed really well. Nice work my friend. It's awesome to see you keep working!

    figured i'd do a quick one, like really quick, in pen to see where i'm really at.
    in 15 min i got the likeness for the most part, the eyes looks a little (not much) better, and the head shape isn't as off as it is in the other ones (still off tho)

    when i get some good free time, i'm gonna do a longer one. hope that's soon...

    Yea the eyes definitely look better on this latest digital. The edges of the face seem a bit too blurry though, maybe you could use some harder brushes for that when you do the next one? Oh and keep at it man, your doing great!

    thanks Imaginary, yeah the brush i used was a really blurry one that i made a few days back for fun. still have no idea what the hell i'm doing when it comes to painting in photoshop... heh.
    this one i did use a hard brush, and it had a lot of fun while doing it.

    sweet stuff man, i like the amount of experimentation you got going on, just a crit, the pen one shows a lack of confidence in your lines, try to nail those lines with longer strokes, doing blind contour exercises or just drawing without lifting the pen can really help improve your line quality.

    keep it up!

    thanks for the crit paperx, i have noticed that i draw with many light/loose lines to find the line i'm looking for, i really should try to get away from that, or choose when to do it. heh....

    red pencil today, in another strange mood.

    didn't post two older ones, so here those are, and a small one for today, eyes are still a bitch. =/
    it's funny, the only thing i can't seem to draw is myself. other people aren't a big problem for me at all... wonder why that is?
