    Self Exploration

    I don't know what happened to my thread in here, so I guess I'll start one anew.

    Looking good man, I like your use of colour, I think #4 or 6 are my favourites.

    If you're aiming for a more realistic rendition, it feels like your portraits could use a bit more structure and consistency. Your nose seems misaligned with your eyes in a couple of them - #1/2 are good examples I think, compared to a more accurate #6. I experienced this often myself :], and it's possible that you're moving. Maybe you're locking eyes with yourself after/before you draw your nose at an angle. I had to get really strict with my poses sometimes, and it can be really difficult to not end up drawing an exciting expression where my eyes looked 'dead'(focussing :p).
    But, starting a drawing with planes, structure and proportional features will tie you down to keeping things unified. Your avatar image would be a great way to approach a self portrait. I'd like to see that ;]!

    Keep it up, looking good, hope that helps!

    My personal favourites are the last too and the first painted self-portrait. I think you work great with pastel. Keep up!

    Thanks everyone; by the way I haven't used pastel in these, it was colored pencil; though
    I do plan on using my new nupastels to do a self portrait soon.

    I just got a self portrait mirror finally, so I'll be updating this thread a lot more often.

    Did this one about a month ago; I was happy with the colors kind of,
    but I messed up the facial proportions

    These are great
    my only crit however, is that the structure of your head could be pushed further, remember- there's a skull underneath, and an order to how your features sit and are lined up together.

    Looking forward to more =)
