    Unlink40's Self Portrait

    Hey guys

    I'm an art major at a state college in FL and about halfway through my second year of taking art classes.

    Do you guys have any suggestions for me?

    This is a Charcoal self portrait I'm working on.

    looks like youre nailing the likeness every time! very good shadows too. I would only suggest changing up the angle and also explore different lighting solutions - down/front lighting is so overused in everything. try maybe lighting from both sides and have your shadows meet in the middle of your face, or from below for that creepy horror movie look

    Mooorree!!!

    These are incredible!! You're doin' so well man.

    Its gonna be cool to look you up in 10 years and see wtf you're doing.

    A year ago you were a 1st stage evolution and you could only use tail whip. Now you're like lv. 38!! Still 2nd stage though, cause you're a legendary pokemon. You don't evolve until level 53. But then you're a badass.

    I agree, you art works are really good, especially I liek the one in graphite and watercolors.

    I think you should work more with pencil portraits.
    Great job!

    one suggestion i have is that you should try some different angles and poses of yourself, have someone take lots of different pictures of you doing natural actions, and youll find your portraits will have alot more fluidity and will capture the viewers intrest easier... oh also dont be afraid to show your eyes more theyre very important in bringing emotion out in the viewer.

    hope i helped out, keep up the good work, i like your style with the charcoal
