    DI888 Self Portraits. Of the daily variety

    Hey all
    After doing an incredible amount of lurking on this board for sometime now, I figured it's about time I got myself an account and started a daily SP thread of my own!
    So er, yeah, here goes! Kicking off with a pretty standard pencil sketch.

    Blech, couldn't upload anything yesterday. Kept on getting a database error. Very strange... Anywho
    Another pencil sketch followed by a Biro pen attempt. Gonna try and go for a digital one tommorow.

    I really dig the first portrait, the second one the overall length of the head looks a bit long compared to the first one. These are looking nice. Every SP will make you improve. Keep it up.

    Did this one in Painter. Didn't really get it looking as smooth as I'd hoped, and I kind of gave up on the background there. :/
    Still, onwards and upwards.

    Gah, not pleased with this one. How did I let the head get so elongated! >_<

    Eh, I like the painter one. Really looks like real brush strokes and I like how you were playing with the colors.

    On the last one remember that the eyes are generally in the middle of the face if you draw a containing oval shape for the head. Not sure which you drew first - the features of your face or the outside but like you said It does look elongated compared to your painter one. Keep doing these, they will certainly improve.

    Thanks danlucas. Yeah I started off with the eyes first and kinda worked outwards from there. Probably should've figured out the proportions first, but there we go. We learn from our mistakes. Thanks for the input, 'tis appreciated.
    Don't worry, No87, your patience is rewarded!

    Bending the rules a little bit with a three for one deal yesterday.
    Another painter attempt today, this time in black and white. I don't mind this one too much but it took me way too long to finish! Gonna haave to speed up

    Photoshop. This one has taught me the importance of never doing digital pieces on a sunny morning. *Wishes his laptop had anti glare*

    good on you for doing more digitals mate! some of the stuff we talked about, you taken on board pretty well.
    only a quick crit i would say maybe keep ur center line more straight might help. and also are u flipping the canvas to check for mistakes?

    Cheers man! If I'm being brutally honest, I probably don't do the flipping of the canvas as much as I should. I'll defo try and do it a lot more, especially at the start. Thanks for the links as well, I'll be sure to give those a good run through.
