Here we go.
"Work for your self first. You can paint best the things you like or the things you hate. You cannot paint well when indifferent.
Express a mental opinion about something you are sensitive to in life around you. There is a profound difference between sensitivity and sentimentality."

I love ISP Day! Thanks for organizing it every year, Oblio.
This is my 3rd year... turned out a little bloody again.
My back hurts now...
After modelling for 12 hours on a school project i felt super tired however seeing all these awesome selfportraits made me want to do one as well. And how could i not I've been excited for this since last year. So here's mine. I look all tired and crap cause i just modelled my ass off and am totally dead. Was quite a rush job. around 2.5 hours. Now I'm off for some well deserved sleep. Keep em coming guys!
edit: Aaah my picture didnt load when i uploaded last night so i reloaded O.o

This is my 3rd year doing this. Better than the last in most ways, but not quite up to a few I've done in the past 2 months.
This is my 2nd year submitting. Not as much time to spend on my portrait as last year but I'm happy to participate.
1.5 hours in Photoshop.

Decided to jump in, I know, 5 min sketch. Love this thread.
Love the entries as much as I do every year.
Seven hours, from photo reference.
Initial pencil study scanned and worked on with Photoshop and Painter 12x12" @300dpi
Ref and WIP at my blog.
I kinda rushed this.
there some killer stuff posted!
so it started as a value study and then i kinda started fartin around and makin juicy things and got super carried away
Some really great entries here, as always.
Here's mine. This is my third time participating. There are still a couple of things I'd like to fix, but I've spent more than enough time on it already.
Photoshop CS3 w/ Wacom Intuos4
Referenced from a couple of webcam photos
EDIT (11/04/10): I made a few adjustments to this one after Nov 1. The newer, slightly improved version is HERE.

The secret to happiness is wanting what you have, not having what you want.
Work without vision is drudgery; Vision without work is daydreaming.
