    No fooling, either.

    Guess I'll start this one off with a nine-hour Opencanvas 3 marathon. I think I've come a long way in the last month, even if I've been... skimping on the SP's.

    Great work in March, everyone. A lot of improvement, a lot of new faces. Awesome work everyone, you should all be proud of yourselves.

    And here we go.

    I really like the second one best.

    Silvrain :: I was serious when I said it was easily my favorite of yours. It's stunning.
    jwo :: The blood...is creepy, I like the darker smears.
    jook :: I like the second set of sketches, it's always good to study.

    Cool SP's guys

    Silvrain: very tight indeed!
    JWO: That has a cool abstract feel to it, I dig it.
    Jook: cool stuff, Your continued effort really shows.
    asbestoshazard: cool sp....but what is that in the top right? :p
    jetpack42: Looks good but try more values if you are going for monochromatic.


    here is my latest.

    Hi

    Just had one of those days when everything you draw and paint turns out crap? Today I´m having just that.
    Anyway apriils fools day so I decided to post a sp anyway.

    I used size 20 watercolour brush and painted to quickly so the paper crumbled,
    saved a little with ugly white colour and some more ink
    with size 6 water colour brush.

    KoZ: the left eye (your right eye) seems to float togheter with the nose, otherwise its nice and expressive.

    Jetpack: Nice 30min sp. One suggestion, since I rarley get any time to sit down for more than 20 min a time I continue my sp:s over several times to get them finished it´s hard to get back in same position but one gets better. Anyway when you get a quick one that you feel you got a good structure to, continue it over a couple of "sittings" and do as KoZ wrote put in more values and refine so you get to practise that too if you understand what I mean (sorry bad english).

    asbestoshazard: So thats on your mind :blush:

    jook: Yeah it´s always fun to meet the parents (In my case if its not to long period of time) Keep at it

    jwo: Oh my God one of those selfdestructive art people Looks a little like you are being born.

    Silvrain: Nice one different from your other ones if I remember correctly.
    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    Sorry it's not totally new, but I needed to push this one further to reflect some feelings. I am such a f***ing drama queen...

    I want to color like bengal.

    April Self-Portrait Thread!

    I hear you guys, I'll start working on some longer studies after this weekend...

    Also, I'm saving my images at 75dpi, and compressing them in the photoshop "Save for Web" function...what does everyone else do? My images run between 20-60k. I'm curious, cause I never notice everyone else's looking like crap, like mine...(with the blurring and the artifacts and whatnot)
