    Red face paperX's Daily SP [026] Crits appreciated!

    Been doing some self-portraits lately, and I thought I might as well make it a daily practice. So yeah here I go!

    First post reserved for the oh-so-important thumbnail

    mc2mc2: try doing shorter ones? like 10~15 min? I think it's just a matter of developing the habit...I know you can paint pretty quick so I reckon you could do it

    One for today...sorry I don't think I put enough effort into this one...

    well...looking back at the previous SP's I think I really need to work on the likeness as well....they all look like different people

    today is especially bad...the proportion isn't too good, im sure perspective is off and likeness as mentioned is totally shit...still trying to work out colour as always but I think I got too lazy eventually and didn't mix enough colours to provide variation of hues...

    I'm not sure whether to say spend more time on these, or spend less time and do more of them. Maybe just lots of blind contours and gestures of yourself would capture the likeness.

    When you get a good one, work on it until you've had enough. Then put it down, and come back to it a week later. That time away from it will allow you to come back with an objective point of view, and you may know what to do differently.

    oh max stop speaking in absolutes its just a suggestion

    Max Challie: thanks for the comments and advice max. I'm not sure blind contours or gestures would help with likeness though, lines and observation probably yeah but I probably need to focus more on comparing and getting the proportions and such down to fix likeness issues.

    As for the self portraits...I'm really treating this as a training regime thing, a chance to get myself to draw something per day at least, mess around with different styles, experiment with colours etc. will try to put what I learn from these into actual finished pieces. So yeah...I don't think I'll be going back and reworking these anytime soon...


    Not my greatest effort (kinda nice to see I can crank out one quick though!)
