    beigeapes self portraits

    hi, long time viewer, pretty new to posting, skill levels around here are too frightening. i've posted some work over in the sketch book section if anyone feels like checking that out, here are some self portraits done from life and from photographs, using painter, artrage and photoshop both of which ive been learning for the past 2 years mainly from this site, thanks to the community for the bounty of knowledge around here.
    ps, i look angry when i concentrate, some peope say i look angry all the time though i dont feel like that, i blame my grandfather, i inherited his face.
    comments and crits more than welcome
    hope you enjoy,
    ray

    I love how you painted the ear and the tones on the face in the last one, great job with the glasses too, those are so hard to draw for me :< The facial hair is really good however the chin area seems wrong somehow, maybe you need to add some more finer lined hairs as well to blend it more. Just a suggestion^^I'm still learning..

    an udder self portrait..

    hi, back again, it would be easier to get a fat man through the eye of a camel than to access the ghost of the t'interwebs around here so ill keep this brief, thanks to every body for comments and crits, most appreciated,


    here's a self portrait i spent about 8 hrs on one nite for a challenge i saw on this forum but was'nt satisfied to post then, spent a shit load more time on it since without the mirror or the same lighting which was a big mistake and a total waste of time, postin the first version, time to move on.

    thanks amianna, think you may be right bout the chin but its gona remain as is, i got me an over bite hence the beard! thats an old one, similar reason to move on for above,

    polipol, thanks very much, yup we do pull some fearsome faces when trying to conquer! -new zealand rugby teams balletic pre match dance!
    thanks again,
    eat yer greens,
    ray

    heres another sloppy painting..but i do like some of the modeling because i paid more attention than usual to bounced light and shadows in terms of revealing and defining forms, and also that it does'nt look too computer. what do you guys think?

    ps, i aint a total narcissist, more life paintings in my sketch book, check that shit out you genii's.. back some time in the future

    www.rayforkan.blogspot.com

    still searchin for a mentor..could it be you who helps me take my work to the next level?

    Very nice work. Maybe do some pencil work too? I hope you keep posting.

    My favourite is the last one in the first post. A flaw that jumps out at me is that your forehead seems way too high on this one even considering the perspective.

    busted goggles allopecia

    heh folks, just seen the awesome el coro ala prima post, ..........fuk me. nuff said.
    heres my latest attempt, still got the same problem areas, structure, neck, eyes, modelling, but I learned alot with this one about saturation moving towards highlights as well as some pshop stuff like median filters and blending modes on lowered opacity.

    Since its portrait month I hope to coerce some family and friends into sittin still for a change so i can address these problems.

    Id be more than happy to hear advice, crits and comments. as long as its not to point out type-o's.

    like you im here to learn and improve. have a good one.

    oh yeah, thanks to my bro for the place to crash and work. much appretiado a mhac.

    Wow, post 24 looks awesome, definitely into that... it kind of reminds me of Rembrandt's application of paint and his palette in a way. Loving it, keep going!

    heres a quicky for tonite, painter and pshop and no details! thae darks could have been darker, when i selected what i thought was the right tone for the bg and began mixing up, everything got brighter! my eyes are liars!
    peace, ray

    also. if there were ever a better album than Lambchop, is a woman to work to late at night id like to know.

    Hey dude, sucks to hear that. You have a lot of experience as compared to me, who's just starting out. D: (I'm currently jobless as well.)

    You can check out http://www.creativeheads.net/. There may be some jobs out there that are suitable for you. I can't leave my country just yet but if it's really hard to find a job in your country, there's no harm trying another.

    Good luck with job hunting!
