    when i'm working in photopshop/painter, anything goes! its very freeing, although hopefully not too dense

    People wake up and have a bad day and donít put any lines down that are worth it. Itís very reinvigorating to take a day off and realize thereís nothing you can screw up in your drawing, thereís nothing to fear but your own laziness. ĖMarko Djurdjevic facelessvision.wordpress.com

    thankyou virus! it was done from a picture :-/, mirrors often leave me a little wonky and expressionless due to my concentrated drawing. next one will be from a mirror tho! there's something very important about translating from 3 dimensional space. and hands are tricky but fun, often times they show just as much expression as a face! i will repost soon with a more finalized render, i had just been painting for a while and felt i had to call it. thats one problem i have, getting everything down fast and then working in, i find myself going detail to detail instead of working the whole piece

    right on man. seems you knew what I was going to say. life will help you understand color and color temp a thousand times more than photos, not to mention the form in a picture is super off compared to life. (camera has one eye, we have two.)
    keep it up. =)

    blarrrrrrrrrg

    ok i'll admit i stopped looking at the mirror before i really got the eyes down, i lost interest. i think i'm not 100% comfortable with tablet/screen separation. i'm taking too long to get everything down, compared to my comfort with pencil... don't even get me started with color! i can barely get the tone right

    jigje: thanks a heap! i've always been a drawer, lines my thing, but lets see if i can't get this painting thing figured out
    virus: thankyou, and i agree. floating eyes almost always give me problems, i end up detailing the eye only to realize its not aligned. im gonna try to focus on laying down a good structure and tone shapes, try to be bold and quick. some of the guys on this forum have mastered that

    Hey the last one is pretty cool. Yes it is pretty hard to get used to the wacom/screen separation things, and then if you're doing a self portrait from the mirror, having a wacom/screen/mirror separation is super difficult, I haven't really figured it out for myself either, but your stuff looks good!

    Don't worry about taking your time to get stuff down, you're learning while you do it so it is all worthwhile, you will get faster with practice. Yes make sure you're observing constantly, don't put down anything unless you know it's really there.

    Otherwise keep it up, these self portraits look pretty awesome!
