Urg, forgot about that midnight thing. Posted this in yesterdays.
Sure is an existential experience drawing yourself, looking into your own eyes, from memory. If eyes are the windows to the soul, what are in the eyes of a drawing?

this was a value practice... I did it with my eyes squinted so as to not see the details... cop-out or practice?
Kanimator... interesting perspective.. You are getting pretty good at this draawing from memory thing...
Nova... I like what you did with the hair.

rad, we're off to a great start!
brain ~ this one's almost abstract. i like where you used the whites
requiem ~ 1. i love the subtle shades. moody without going the normal route. 2. powerful. i like that you've shaded the lines
rusty ~ hello mr. james dean
skank ~ nice texture, great characterization
jook ~ i squinted my eyes when i looked at this one, it's an interesting effect
kanimator ~ same thing that jook said, you're getting good at the memorization
i went to sleep early last night, so here's one from the 26th of june

Stupid computer disconnected me when I had done all the comments..well back at it I guess
The nose well it started out good but then I tried to fix an error leading to another and so on, anyway here it is
Nova: I have a feeling that you like "semi-spiral" curly shapes and forms in general. Your second sp was a little agressive even if I disregard the text
requiem: you got a strange wet feeling going on there.
Rusty: Cool. To nitpick the nose seems to point to much forward but it might be the scanner taking away some values.
Skank: Yep minimal, it would be fun to see a fully shaded and stuff sp from you I can´t recall ever seeing ine og those from you.
Jook: I would dare to call it practice seems like you captured the forms quite good... Why not try and make it without squinting and see if you could translate your face with all the details showing down to the same level of "simplicity"
Kanimator: Man you draw better from memory than I draw when I use a mirror, even if thats not saying that much
My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
Ps:Hope you understand my English.
Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

ladylioness - good start. try to use longer sweeping lines instead of short ones. don't worry about getting messy.
nova - damn. I guess you're really not feeling well.
mindflaw - pretty solid. remember that in most cases the upper lip will have a darker value than the lower one.
brain - i like that abbreviated image idea.
requiem - cool stuff! I like the strokes and the second one I like the lines following the form.
rusty - too cool for school
skank - nice. I think that drawing would look really cool if it was inked.
jook - great idea for practice, actually if you wanted to finish that one I don't think it would take that much work.
kanimator - really cool style. would love to see some colored stuff.
Here's a half hour quickie.

Long time no see guys.
Kind of a quick one - but it took some time - the mirror was a bit far from my comp and i was streaching to ritch both my wacom and my reflection
Groover - super nice. respekt.
LadyLioness - it;s been a while already eh? Looking good. Howefer, the form stil doesn't read right. Try to draw the volumes. Planes. DO your geometric low-poly SP. Use a strong light and draw the shadow and light masses. Right now you should focus on form. Keep em comming.
Nova - sory for your bad days - the SP is lovely though - it has such a nice pencil feeling that makes me want to pick a pencil right now (which i will btw). I have upploaded that - buzz me when you have time. :doh:
Mindflow - i know what you mean - trying to fix a small thing and end up with a screwed pic. The SP is nice though - it has some likeness in it and personality. You can enhance your form a bit more. Try one with a strong light and mind the simetry, axes etc.
