    =Self portrait=

    hey,im new to these forums but im blowen away by all the stuff ive seen in these forums so far....

    I intend to visit these forums alot an hopefully post up some sketches or finish crap ive done.I never use photos when doing my SP,its either done looking into a mirror or straight from my imagination.
    HTML is something im real new to so some people links might not work n stuff..

    those are all really good, especially the ones done with the mouse. Can anyone say "carporal tunnel syndrome"? j/k
    What pencils do u use for your sketches? i really like your linework.

    Thanks Helltaxi......
    I use HB`s,2B pencils of any kind,no real difference in brands from experience..Charcoal or Pastel pencils used with a smudging stick(cant remember the proper name 4 them at this time)r great 4 life drawing .. Black colouring pencils r great alternative to normal graphite pencils...paper,any ol shit will do,mainly use cartridge sketch pads.
