Dile_: Thanks Dile, these are allot better then that apple i posted on facebook.
Glaedr: Thats the goal, Thanks
Ok, so i have to make some changes temporarily for the paintings, Since im going to SCAD day on October 10th, i need to set up a small portfolio for there portfolio review, so im going to complete as many digital paintings as i can before that time. I'm still going to focus on the self portraits which by the way take a long time!
I must say though, all those self portraits which dont look to difficult to do on here, take a long time, like 3 and a half hours. However im learning SO much from them so the trade off is fine by me!
Here is how im living:
Wake up 6am
Drive to school 6:30
come home at 4:00
Have dinner until 4:30
Do self 25 portraits 4:30-8
Paint digital picture 8-10:30
Surf the web or something 10:30-11:00
Post my work: 11:00+
Basically wake up, go to school, come back from school, draw and paint nonstop, then i sleep..
Also edit: my face hurts after i make all those poses again and again :p

Reason: why not right?
Great idea; this will be neat to follow. Your paintings are already very good.
One small suggestion; especially when drawing portraits from life, I've found it very helpful to work slightly larger than usual; it's hard to get the correct shapes and angles on a very small drawing, so you get better accuracy at larger sizes. Of course, larger drawings can take longer.
I have an anatomy test tomorrow that im really worried about, so i had to cut down on the drawings. I still did 25 faces but a few are half faces. Basically i focused on one of my weakest points on the face, the eye opposite of the nose at an angle. I feel i may need to do more studies with it, but this practice defiantly helped. My rendered face looks so stupid btw lol.. Also i really appreciate the feedback!
--Im not sure if im going to do 100 days of self portraits, with regards to faces alone, it may be a little redundant after MAYBE the 25th day or less depending on how things go.. so when i feel ready to move on i most likely will, it will probably be chest studies.. So if your lucky you will get to see my amazing abs.. or perhaps, if nobody reads this in 20+/- days when i put them up ill just put someone else's face on my body and nobody will know, wooo.
lilnebo: Hey thanks! I sent you a pm with my msn, not sure if you got it or not.. Also im not sure how the imagination thing would help too much, however i did do some semi-imaginative studies in my latest study.
Jcphal: Thanks, however i think im going to keep my pictures small, i may have to work smaller but i still get the point across, as in i still learn about the form of the face. Thanks though for the input
Towy: Thanks! : >

I wish i could have done more work today but i have the second half of the anatomy test tomorrow and i really needed to study, however i still gave effort to the portraits. I'll make up for the slack probably over the weekend.
hmm, i think i should move on from the line portraits and start making rendered self portraits which will take more time.. that will also mean will be doing less. I dont know, if anyone is reading this should i do a few rendered self portraits or do some head and body line self portraits. Perhaps you have a different suggestion?
either way here is todays studies..
Edit: also i think i have learned as much as i can with these lines ports i need to move on to bigger and better things.
