    your drawings have a nice "worked" feeling to them. seems your not afraid to make broad, quick statements. maybe work with graphite and don't be afraid to erase out and blend a bit, maybe spend more time. this will force you to look more and get used to the mirror. good stuff so far, keep it up =)

    thanks virus! that's some good points you brought up. i think i will try spending a little more time on them and try and develop stuff abit more.

    this time i had ago at digital one. i should have really sketch this before painting. instead i rushed into colour and form so quickly on this. everything got so distorted in this method. also i forgot to set colour proof before i started so some of the dark tones have gone now.

    used digital again. wanted to just get the likeness across without dealing with skin tone. i threw down a quick sketched before painting this time
    oh and i tried a different expression aswell.

    today i was messing around with painter for a change. ive never really given this program a proper try out. so inspired by sketcheth's awesome experimental work i thought i would sit down and started learning some of the tools, and my god is there some amazing brushes in this program! so here is a fusion of me messing around with loads of brushes as i go
