    February Self-Portrait Thread

    Not sure if I can start this post or not, but hey, worth a try. Second month already into the new year. Great work so far, everyone.

    Here's my contribution.

    Nice way to start the month...

    I like how simple and energetic that is Silvrain.

    Killing: That top one was looking like it was going to be badass.. I like the background.

    cool..

    trying out more color combos...

    Excellent work, people.

    This is my first submission to the self-portrait threads. I insisted on stopping once I spent a full hour on it, so I did. I started off with the left eye, and expanded the portrait around that. Unfortunately, I couldn't keep a consistent pose, so I had to do a bit of guesswork once I had the direction of the drawing set down.

    February Self-Portrait Thread

    silvrain, i like the comic book style

    killing.people- those are great, you use photoshop?

    jook- good structure in those ones again, not sure about the green though. but you are improving alot.

    jack in box- interresting technique, how did you get that? just a high texture brush?

    sone one- thats very nice, really confident looking and i like your use of layering to suggest the hair texture.

    cheers

    Actually, I was using entirely the "dissolve" effect for airbrush in Photoshop 6.0.

    What the hell, I figured.

    sone_one - i like the way your sp looks it has a interesting style.

    JaCkinbOx - not bad. at first i thought you just did a bad scan of your sp....:p

    jook - much better looking sp's! you are improving it is great to see you progress. just keep it up!

    killing.people - oohh i like the first one alot, to bad you didn't finish it.

    Silvrain - your style has a nice flow to it

    great work everyone this is just the begining.... lets kick the crap out of last month :rambo: :electric:

    -Jesse

    p.s. apparently some people can't see the images i post from fortunecity so i will add a link. hopefully that helps....

    J.Mac - The eyes appear a little far apart, and the neck looks to be a tad too broad.

    Your highlighting looks good.

    My only other significant suggestion that hits me would be to loosen up on your linework a little. Strong, but a little too controlled, if you take my meaning.

    JaCkinbOx - thanks for the comments, you know what i seem to always make that space too big in alot of my sp's. for some reason i never catch it but than again i never really noticed it before.... oh and the reason my lines seem to be that way is b/c i am very analytical when it comes to finding form, but then again i should learn to loosen up

    I had issues with the colors.. Oh well, at least it's a move out of black and white (or that blue scheme) no matter how wierd it turned out.

    Haven't been around for a while...something from open canvas with a mirror. X_X

    Silvrain :: Both beautiful -- but i think I like the 2nd more than the first. Maybe it's my love of color The eyes draw me in.
    killing.people :: The first one blows me away -- the bg, everything. I'm amazed that it has detail without being -really- detailed.
    jook:: Nice play with colors on the first one.
    JaCkinbOx :: Great texture, the eyes just pop out.
    sone_one :: Love the texture and depth in the face; I'm jealous of the depth -- I feel like I rammed my face into a wall.
    Ni* :: Again with the color! I like the little hints of blue/green that hide in there.
    J.Mac :: Your sp reminds me of geometry...or that art exercise where they make you pay attention to geometric surfaces on organic items...looks good.

    Jmac- i can finally see your image!! nice image, it looks like you started on (your) right eye because that is the most detailed and confident area. other people have mentioned the slight proportion issues, but i think its the viewer's right earphone, it is sitting too high so makes your ear look a bit high. nice to finally get to see your work though ;-)


    silvrain- you look drunk or ill :-p maybe drop a bit more of those warm colours into the cheeks to improve your well being..


    asbestos- ooo.. a pouty one, nice expression, and you've really got the hang of smooth shading. to give it a bit more depth you could really darken all the shadows, try increasing the contrast in photoshop or painter.
    and i am a glutton for punishment, i'll keep at this colour thing untill it works, or at least looks ok


    cheers
