    keyth and BH you guys have been missed around here. Glad to see you still at it.... so post more

    i forgot my digital camera at home so i can only post things that i can scan or i do digitally. to bad i can't draw on the computer period. oh well i guess i will have to try now :p

    let me know if these are too dark, they look fine on my comp but i have to take the images down to the computer lab to upload and they look dark on this comp.

    jhibbs - better late than never wow you did it with a different medium than i have ever seen from you, ilike it!

    nunch - i like your black monotone crazyness the best it has more visual interest "imo" i see your praportions getting a little better. keep it up!

    brain - hey it kind of looks like you have pink eye, which i hope that isn't true.

    here is mine during breakfast again, this was about 10 minutes. if any one has any tips on how i could paint better that would be appreciated.

    Haha Nice to seeya BH/. wondered where ya been!

    Good to see some familiar faces!

    Jons going at it too, gotta love it. linework is nice

    nice to see ya again keyth. headphones still attached eh

    broken cow awesome...

    jmac wicked for digi painting. too sketchy painting perhaps. block in huge forms of colour. 3 values minimum to show form. light medium dark. even though i am no portrait paintiner, still - life paintings help tremendously with this sort of thing. but keep at it man, nice to see some colour even though your sketches are coming along.

    gotta love the sketches jhibbs!

    Mine. first charcoal, others graphite. Decembers Goal- TRY to do one a day.

    Android - thank you very much, your words are always encouraging.

    jnorish - that is pretty good, overall it is good. the onlt thing that is bothering me is your neck, it is buldging outward. that is it . good work

    skank - nice sp it is expressive and loose, keep them coming

    endragen - oohhh nice, you have improved. i am glad to see you back here, those are good. remember you made a promise to a god, so you better get busy

    brokencow - that is good i like the way it feels

    mcm - good work i like how some areas have a lighter line weight than others. it makes for an interesting drawing

    ok here is mine i've been trying to paint these in painter and it is not working so well. endregan i tried you idea and it was helping but than i some how made it go to shit. so i reverted back to my sketch. when i try these i have no idea where to start and how to use my colours, that is my conclusion so far...x:

    jmac - its harder to do it digitally, well at least for myself. i see what you mean..

    get a couple bottles, or whatever you have avaiable for a still life. set them up however you want. make sure they are simple enough shapes to start. try to see shapes, nothing else. there are 3 basic values. use the lightest value to fill in the whole, lets say, a lemon.

    after you do that you can mix in red and blue to get the darker value (other of the basic colours mixed together with the yellow will give u darker). so make your darkest value dark, medium a medium and light a light.

    the same theory applies to the face, it is made up of shapes, its just more complex. think larger. something i have troubles with myself

    hope that helps.

    Android: I will take it one day at a time. dont be alarmed, i might not be able to scan until later, but ill try and get them all in

    later guys, keep it up!

    gulp... well, here goes, borrowed a wacom for a while before i buy my own and it's let me try a bit of photoshop painting.

    First serious sustained effort at a SP so any advice would be greatly appreciated, I stuck to 3 grey tones then did a pale colour wash over.

    I hope this image works....

    great work on here, very inspiring

    cheers

    ...and while i'm here...

    ..I may as well post this one too. A little experimentation, so it's a little simplistic but great fun to do and it even kind of looks like me.... 'cept i have skin and stuff....

    I haven't just sat with the direct purpose to draw myself in a long time. I'm not pleased with my ear; I do like my mouth.
