HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLES!!!!!!
grrar, haed pains..
happy new year all
Wednesday - good work, and keep them coming
LadyLioness - not bad for your second sp, just try to measure with your pencil to help get the right praportions. keep them coming
Oblio - wow haven't seen you around to much, but i am glad to see you poping by every so often that pic makes me want to yawn
keyth - that is really good! i hope to see you around here more this year
Killing.people - thank you so much for your words i appreciate it very much!!
ok here is mine as usual it is 25 minute sp late last night
Edit - here is a piece of crap i did today which is horrible, but i feel compelled to share my sp's even if they are big failures. i am just in a pissed off mood and i get reach my zen :mad: i don't know..... 10 minutes or even less on this waste of pixels

Happy New Year's guys!
Mine was busy, how was all of yours? Sorry for the poor presentation. I made a resolution to do these at once a day again regardless. Hopefully I can stay true to my word.
Keyth - Nice to see you again, I've been as lazy with the self-portraits as you have
Oblio - My robot army is preparing itself, you ready?
J.Mac - Nice work, good improvement. Let the good roll with the bad, it all still gradually improves over time. It's like leaving a crappy sketch in a sketchbook. You know it sucks, but it's kind of like the story of your development.
Wednesday - Welcome, face looks great, ear looks kind of distracting. Nice and simple though.
LadyLioness - Be careful of the eyeform, you almost made it too literal, like a football. Check the axis of the face as well, this one has a slight curvature to it. Keep the work coming though and happy new year.
Hey guys thanks for the comments, i always try to keep them in mind. i didnt see your comments till after i was done with my 3rd portrait, which when i scanned it, i could see all the wrongs -.-''. bleh so i set off to do my 4th sp..ehhh it didnt come out so great also.
BTW how do you guys do your self portraits? just look at a mirror, take a dig pic or?
hmm i cant wait till i do a sp of myself and it actually having some sort of resemblence of me. i should make myself do two a day instead
1-1-04 - 4:56 AM
"OH NO SHE DID ANOTHER ONE...RUN!!"
couldnt help but do another one, im seriously having a lot of fun. err this was more of a bad scribble than a sp but its still a sp so here it goes. btw i should spend more time of these next time

i think you need to concentrate more on form and shape instead of just jumping into a portrait with line.
take your time with measurements. and i suggest completely forgetting about shading them until you can understand how to pull off the shapes.
your linework seems very sketchy and rushed, there's no need for half of a lip to be completely different as the otherside, visually sketch out the shape of the lip until it matchs, then go for the detailed line work.
keep them up.
here is my quickie
it got a lil dark
Awesome BH. It would be a pleasure to see a SP from u ever day.
Good to see you keyth.
Keep it up lioness. try what davi said! keep at it!
jmac- i know how you feel..
awesome way to start off the year. could be better though.
Andrew Jones- I did it. one a day for a month. Still going , thanks for the inspiration!
From Dec 30
happy new years everyone
Messed up painting
Thanks for the info guys. alright heres another. i dont like this one that much, i got really impatient with it . i promise i will try much more harder on my 2nd one tonight. ughhh and this one is a little big.:bash:

OB...you didn't finish your sentence man. you said i'm your fried.....fried what? fried chicken? or perhaps i'm your fried catfish? don't leave me hang'n.
im not quite awake so im bound not to make sense.. or i'll make more sense :fruit:
used a mirror, i hear photos give you cancer/steal your soul/grows hairs on your palms.
LadyLioness : i like the second one of your recent, it looks clean
keyth : the depth of feild with the the lines are cool
endregan: keep up the sps, are you going to be doing them daily still?
dns2k : like the color and loosness of that
blackhawk : my ears do stick out like that, sort of :o
sounds like a plan, i'll *try :eek: to make this daily too, great work btw
J.Mac : great values, someone has appeared to scribble angryly on your second one though, they need lots of :beer:
oblio : did you do that with eyes closed?
less talk more sleep now ...zzz
happy new year!
hangover is wearing off and normal life is resuming so i'm back playing with my shiny new tablet. I really dont know if i've improved any but i'm trying to focus on the enjoyment of the process more than anything else. This one i enjoyed alot
It would appear that i can't see any art hosted on fortune city, bummer..anyone else on BT that has this problem?
here's mine from today... been slacking... sorry:
Keep up the dandy work 'n stuff with the portraits! They're all looking nice.
Nice to see all the SPs in the new year.
I used a mirror (my cam is...finished) and did a quickie sketch-style out of painter, you can see where I started to get lazy. : /
Keyth :: I am lovin' the colors packed into your first and the simple line in the second.
Oblio :: Talk about expression!
LadyLioness :: Keep up all the good practice, I particularly like the one with your hair pulled back (the latest one sans hoodie!)
Wednesday :: Nice work with the angle in the second one, nice colors, too -- makes me want to try some.
J.Mac :: Nice job with the pencils, I like the smirk.
Blackhawk :: Stunning as per usual! You always look so very cool and reserved. : )
dns2k :: I like the muted color choices.
endregan :: You're going where I have yet to tread by braving color! Awesome!
Ni* :: Nice work with the tablet, strong highlights in that one -- it's so hard to get used to staring at a screen while your hand fiddles about elsewhere <_>
Nunch :: Dude...you could almost make some fun vector work out of that.
Keyth: I really admire how you pushed so much color on that. looks great.
LadtLioness: I like your most recent two because they seem to have an actual face structure. Not just eyes, a nose, and a mouth pasted into a head shape. Watch the placement of th ears. look in the mirror where they are compared to your mouth and eyes as far as height.
everyone else: great stuff so far.
bh- love your style
lioness- much improvement, just keep going!!
asbestos- colour is great! i like colour, but its different than graphite, have to mix your medium . id like to see one, try it! its fun! your linework is so good, add some colour to that
wednesday- i still will be doing one a day. ill try my best for one a day!
ni- cool, good to see ya in the in new year
keep it up guys!
used a mirror. Just learning painter. Nice to meet everyone.
hi! i usually post in the dsg thread, but decided to give the sp a try...hmm, harder than i expected. i'm not a complete beginner, but i haven't done anything in about 5 years...so it almost amounts to the same thing c&c welcome!
used a mirror...pencil and ps7
that is really nice phantom_head....
Getting late, have to get up early to open the bar tomorrow, comments coming soon.
painter 7 .. for some reason, i miss it.

Wednesday - keep it up!
Endregan - Great work!!! keep them coming you are getting much better everyday!
ok here are mine the likeness is off :mad: so i think i need to do alot more measuring and a little less intuitive drawing.... x: i think i got to focused on trying get form of seperate features without relating them to one another. i am kind of embarrased to show these but oh well :o ....
posted this in another thread, but i did it with the intention of putting it in here.-c36
