    Urg, forgot about that midnight thing. Posted this in yesterdays.
    july self-portraits!
    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?

    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
    july self-portraits!

    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

    Brain: nice

    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
    july self-portraits!

    Comments:

    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.

    Cya around.

    Oblio

    That thing on the right is a candle. I haven't ever done anything dark like that before, so if it's very wrong then that's why. LOL.
    july self-portraits!

    I'm really not good at commenting. LOL.

    Oblio: I can't see yours.

    Groover McNab: I love the colours you have used.

    LadyLioness: I like the little bit of ear showing. Maybe you could try to give the picture a little bit of detailing and some shading though to make it more interesting.

    nova: I'm sorry that you're not feeling well, but I must say that I love the style of your latest portrait. I love the eyes and hair especially.

    Mindflaw: I really like that one!

    Brain: Nice reflections.

    requiem: Very nice! I like them both.

    Rusty: Nice! Good shading.

    Skank: Is that a lip ring?

    jook: No that looks like a great way to practice.

    Kanimator: I really like that. I love the little swirly thingies you did in the background and the shirt is well done.

    Oblio - Thanks man! It was a pleasure meeting you in Austin. Although we only talked for a couple seconds and I had a couple drinks in me, don't really remember much of that Btw, I love the lines in your sp.

    Sharon - Thanks. Great mood in your sp. Some parts are getting a little muddy (I have the same problem with mine) but it looks like it can easily be smoothed out and fixed. Good work!

    Ok here's a weird one, I usually use reference. But I just tried to make this one up from memory, pretty fun, just weird. It sorta looks like me...

    Just more emotional bulls***
    july self-portraits!

    bhuddistmonk: nice studies. the nose in the first one doesn't read with any volume, though.

    sharron: i love, love your colors. the brown in the bg could be darker in my opinion.

    oblio: ello again, stranger. half finished, crooked, messy, but fun. you post more now.

    ladylioness: very cool that you are keeping up with these, you're showing progress. you should spend more time at the very beginning of the drawing, and more time at the end, with the line quality. try to make longer, swooping strokes, instead of short sketchy ones. show that drawing who's boss!

    nova: you look how i feel today. sick on 4th is fun. i would give you more of my time to comment, but you get what you give.

    mindflaw: you're gettin better so fast. try to work that contrast a bit more, and be a bit more confident and controlled with the shading.


    well, i'm off to enjoy my flu-some 4th of july (yah, i know you'r jealous...). i will do real color next time. i promise...

    ack! i had it then i lost it then i realised that i never really had it, isn't that always the way? i tried to do a smiling one but my day has been an odd mix of good and bad so i couldnt hold it.

    i'll probably be back later to give some feedback, good stuff so far though.

    cheers

    Ni* - I'm like the way that looks. Nice forms and textures

    nova - Both those last 2 are looking good! The right side of the cheek is looking a little flat though, but everything's reading well. As for mine, see my sig
    Hopefully everything will be back up on tuesday.

    nova: great stuff, really inspiring...i wanna try one similar to sp070304.txt
    Kanimator: omg so stylized and emotional. keep them up!
    requiem: the blue face is, so cool!
    Sharon5: fantastic job, espically on the nose and eyes
    cire600: fantastic stuff man! Did you post a painting of your father on the "living lines" forum along time ago?


    ps: marko said this looks nothing like me, that i have a huge head, my eyes are more like snails and my mouth makes "grotesk shapes". I'll try harder to capture that next time..

    this one's for jetpack

    july self-portraits!
    huuge eyes. i think it's because my mirror is above me. i felt good about this one, i danced to ABBA afterwards.

    cire ~ sweet, the contrasting shades makes it take off
    davi ~ nice, but it doesn't really look how i remember you . keep going and make others
    groover ~ great likeness!!

    Did this right before I came to the workshop.

    All these look really great folks -

    Rusty thats nice, I can see how sure your hand is.

    cire600, looks just like you. Nice meeting you in person.

    nova, giving android a run for his money? ;D

    Davi, Your style has made a definite jump since the workshop, I really like it, your stuff looks more , hmm, don't know how to say - maybe meaty or more textured, less smooth and rounded.

    wow these are all soooo great!!

    This was in my sketchbook thread on July 1...figure i'm not remiss to post it here now...

    july self-portraits!

    by far not what I wish it was, but one of my better ones, either way. I know the anatomy isn't right - the face is too flat and the eyes are wanky...but hey, maybe I really look like that.

    forgive the cheezy lettering - i was playing with some font ideas at the same time.

    davi yours look great - I agree with nova - not how I remember you, but very moody!! it's good stuff! Nova - your last one is to die for - you know PJ Harvey, I'm sure ... you'd give her a run for her money in the big-dreamy-but-somehow-sinister eyes department. I love PJ....

    kanimator...rusty...requium...oi! great stuff!! I like the interpretive self portraits everyone's doing here a lot! All of these are so great, I'm really inspired to go do some more...maybe I should be doing that instead of posting...

    keep up the good work everyone ! I love this thread!

    Best,

    Here´s a blind drawing I did (not looking at the paper only in the mirror). Blind drawings are fun to do it´s like giving yourself a suprise present
    july self-portraits!
    Nimrod: nice different angle.

    Davi: I remember the weekend when you draw sp:s like your where on fire (meaning you did a lot of them ) anyway if I remember right you had an other form in those structurewise than in your recent .

    Yeah and I read what happen to you in the lounge man I know the feeling I got 500 hours of work destroyed this year cause of my harddisk broke down. Man this entire summer I must sit in front of the computer and write just to get my degree instead of just draw. Man I had looked forward to just draw the entire summer. Well shit happens :grumble:
    Keep em coming

    Nova: yep it looks good. The text on your shirt together with the flowers get me thinking of this dude who drew this scysraper but he didn´t finish all the windows he just wrote etc anyone would know from the the windows he had done where all the other would go lol. Did you do the same with the flowers?

    Cire600: the curse of the red X

    Ni* I like all the lines that made up the face, it would be cool if you did one accentuating on the all the lines a little more like in the bottom.

    BRANDISH: the eyes seems a little wrong the inner corner of the eye has the same level as the outer corner like you depended a little to much on a "helpline", well hard to explain so I did this example hope you don´t be dislike that I messed with your pic and nova I hope it´s ok that I used your sp if not I take it down right away.
    Ok your eyes levels up to much imho

    Most people eyes make up two red lines like this
    july self-portraits!
    Sorry again nova for using your pic hope it´s ok, (put it away if you dislike), but I thought it was better to use someones sp, that´s better than my own to show what I meant.

    Kanimator:Thanks. I like your and how you composed it, with the "on top pic" centered with the eye and covering it, like to show it as an inner image trough the eye, and I also like how you worked with the colour. You got a lot of symbols in it, gives a lot of ways to interpret not "making" the viewer stupid however if you want to force a special "message" to the viewer I think it´s better to keep it ridicolous simple with max two symbols but that way I don´t like well thats my bs

    bhuddistmonk: nice ones, the the eyebrow hair in second pic seems to be going in to opposite direction, just a detail but anyway

    Groover McNab: You´re right about the lip thing. I like that your sp:s doesn´t look all out of focus inside the head, a lot of digital stuff that I have seen at this forum seems to be all blurry inside.

    Sharon5: Thanks, nice one well to nitpick you might work a little more with the colours I know you got the skills

    Oblio: thanks, heh no flow to offer just flaws lol anyway like your sp I get an image in my head how you lean right in front of your screen to see the mirror than back again etc. Love to see a fully rendered from you

    LadyLioness: Try to really finish your linework give it hours if so needed then use a whiteboard pen pick out two places in your face like e.g the top and the bottom of your ear and put down a dot at each place on the mirror. Then get away from your sp for a couple of hours, then get back to the exact position with help of the dots, another thing that helps getting back in the same postition is not to move the chair or anything else when leaving and coming back. Anyway when you get back you will spot errors more easily thus being able to fix them, but it´s of courses important to have the exact same position. Hope it will be of some use.

    Maldrin: hey your sp got in when I was writing comments anyway took a quick look and I give the same advice as I did BRANDISH

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.
