    Thanks guys.

    J.Mac: Heh, some of it is colored pencil. I used a #2 pencil, 6B pencil, brush marker, red and blue colored pencil, and photoshop.

    Thanks J.Mac and Jook,
    I know the eyes are probably a bit too much...the thing is I was trying to experiment with using colour and blending nicely because I'm a major novice at using colour well in photoshop. I'm a bit better at it in traditional media.

    I also tried to experiment with specular lighting and the easiest place to do that was the eyes...plus I thought the green would help create the focal point in the eyes...

    it's all experimentation...

    Painter sucks. Especially Painter watercolors. I've half a mind to move that little purple paint bucket straight to the Recycle Bin. Bah.

    Your help is much needed and appreciated

    OK so somehting is off i think it might be that eye is to far from the bridge of the nose... i would really appreciate it if everyone ripped this apart. if you have the time could you guys/gals just point out anyhting and everything that doesn't look right. htis is my final piece that i just started only about 1.5 hours into it so i am more than willing to erase the whole face and try it again

    February Self-Portrait Thread

    silvrain - it doesn't suck it is just another creature all together give it a chance it will grow on you

    Kanimator - seems to me that one side of your face is higher than the other.

    jook - cool playing around i like that you have all those brush strokes in there

    February Self-Portrait Thread

    what i need to move and correct
    February Self-Portrait Thread

    _ the eyes are to low plus the shape of the m is completelty off, the nose needs to come over more... :o so much i see is wrong after doing this, i am losing confidence in myself quickly

    Jens - that is very nice i like your confidence in your strokes looks good

    Man, to make up for my last SP, I made a huge effort to focus on proportions... and just making it look like me.
    February Self-Portrait Thread

    And here's my attempt to do a "darker" SP. Ooooh, don't I look all brooding and stuff?
    February Self-Portrait Thread

    Silvrain: Sorry you hate Painter (I do too...), but you're SP is pretty nice. Strange color combo, though.

    J.Mac: Looking waaaaaay better than before. Really looks like you now. Keep going, can't wait to see it finished.

    Jens: Your pencils rock! Somewhere between the two SPs lies the real size of your eyes. Both of your SPs look like two different people. Keep doing these, I'm curious to see what you really look like.

    bhuddistmonk: Good first SP. It's a bit scribbly, maybe if you slowed down and focused on the quality of the lines more. Keep em coming.

    feeling goofy tonight...
    February Self-Portrait Thread

    kanimator... I like the "brooding" one. Its tough to get that angle to look like that angle, but you did it..

    J.Mac. That is looking good. and it is looking like you. I like the outfit man....

    bhuddistmonk... cool. glad to see your face. be wary of your proportions though. I doubt your nose is wider than the mouth... keep at it buddy...

    Jens... I am really liking these. really simple and confident...

    Silvrain... sorry to hear about your distaste for painter. I adore the program.. but hey, to each their own... Interesting color choices.. like it...

    This is my first post on these boards. There seems to be an incredible amount of talent here! Here's a self-portrait I tossed off last night.

    texture and then colour experiment, bleuch!

    loads of great work in my few days of slacking off, i feel bad now. i just didnt seem to be able to progress with anything.

    asbestos- this will demnstrate that any success i've had with colour was just a fluke :-p

    cheers

    I don't really have an excuse/explanation -- This was just loads of fun to do. It's important to play now and again?

    Again...comments...later.... >_< forgive me.
