Attempt number 2. A bit of an improvement I think, a bit more resemblance, but I'm still terrible at this. Mirror reference, again. I think im gonna do some colour studies, like kiwi said.
Edit: I know you're not supposed to have dark rings around the iris, but mine are pretty prominent. Think it's probably my one defining feature

Your second attempt is much better. Keep it up !
FEED THE SKETCHBOOK
Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Nobody made good art by coloring in between the lines.

Hello CA! My uploads have been very sporadic since uni started up again, but here is a quick update. The first two uploads are quick sketches I did for fun, and the other two were for a project. The idea was to illustrate two songs by a band, so I chose Russian Circles and did their songs "Campaign" and "Xavii". Good music.
The first song to me made me think of sleepless nights, so I tried to show the idea of insomnia through mild hallucination and weird colours. The second links in with that, and follows on the idea of waking from a dream, and being in that semi-concious state where reality isn't quite actualized yet. I was on a very tight deadline though, and unfortunately couldn't fix the composition and other mistakes in time. =(
These uploads are somewhat different from what I usually do - I've been trying to experiment. Now that I have the stylized and graphical kind of drawing out of my system I'm gonna try get some more painting done. Hopefully university won't bog me down and my next upload doesn't take this long.

Hi! I love the tree on the hill. I am a long time artist and I came here to learn about computer art. The sketch you did of the tree is the kind of look I like for a future project.
Keep up the good work. I will be checking back to see what you are doing. I hope to learn from your impressive work!

I am a great fan of beards and I am founding member of the "beards are manly, and men must be manly" movement!
- So I would absolutely love to see your bear worked out more
I see this is a speedpaint, but in the end you paid a lot of attention to detail on the nose and eyes. I am not quite sure about the position of the left eye; it seems to high. But I might be mistaken being a beginner myself.
I really like your sb anyway

Here's some quick uploads. Been busy, so didn't really get to do much of the actual study stuff. Another painting practice (okay, I'm gonna try variate a bit more), and some life drawing. The last sketch was just me messing about while bored somewhere, and I remembered the CHOW topic.
I think my next study is gonna be lips. Lots of them. And better colouring. At least I feel kinda more to grips with general painting - stuck to a single layer on that first one.
Expect more improvement CA, and please crit harshly if there isn't enough
Kaffeetrinken: Thank you!
LordLouis: I will definitely render the daylight out of that pic then. Seems I should complete the exercise, and I generally give up on a picture too quickly. Thank you!

Jatherip: So awesome of you to stop by! Thank you, I'll keep at it
Just thought I'd update with a WIP. Yes, still a portrait, but I'm attempting to work from photo reference again, since the self portraits were all from a mirror. Also, trying something new with colour.
Some help would be appreciated. I've noticed the photo sort of distorted the head shape when I started trying to paint it, so I'll be fixing that. The original photo had some strong light, so I'm kind of winging the shading. Figured it would be boring to have the face in the harsh light with the painting.

Like I said, I suck at painting mouths. So I figured I'd do a couple of sketches. I realised painting them is very different from sketching/drawing. Much easier to do the latter for me. My lips are pretty thin, which made it more difficult, but I at least now know where I can exaggerate features and stuff.
So yeah, some quick speedpaints.
If anyone checks in here, I'd love to know if there is any improvement pretty please :3
