    andrew...thats the best one of those I have seen you do.

    your daily self portraits are really helping your skills.

    you got me to sit up with that one.


    well done

    nice, nice

    this is quite nice andrew. i like it mucho grande. i think i'm gonna try out this red and black prisma color pencil stuff tonight. it has a cool effect.
    how long do these take you though? how big are they? Cuz you have a pretty well developed self portrait EVERY night... you either set aside 6 hours a day or are just REEEAAALLY fast!
    the face is great... the beard is the greatest though. I love the texture on it.
    good work, yo

    this was a 3 hour pose, and between breaks and smokes I spent about two hours on it, most of my portraits are done under time limit pressures but I was able to relax and concentrate on this one,
    prisma colors are a great drawing medium, but there is no erasing with them.
    on this portrait I drew the entire face using only the red pencil to get all my perportions and features locked in, once I was confidant with the placment of everything I spent the second hour with the black pencil, defining all the darkest areas like the eyes and nostrils. that way I had much more confidance working over the underdrawing.

    I wanted this portrait to have a softer polished look to it so drew with only sharpened pencils and kept alot of extra sharpened bakups because prisma colors can dull very quickly. thanks for the feed back.

    Andrew, that portrait is stunning. I keep revisiting this thread to look at, I need to save it to my hard drive now Wonderful work. I've been sketching with prismacolor pencils the last couple of weeks, mainly with the black and terra cota, but they are nowhere near the rendering of this. Nicely done man.

    These are so awesome Andrew...wow...so cool. I love the rendering you did from the figure drawing session and also that guy you know from the Saloon...looks fantastic. That is really awesome too that you draw while waiting in line at the bank and stuff...I'm glad I'm not the only one that draws strangers hehe. It's inspiring to see someone as successful (in digital art) as you still plugging away and drawing from life. I take big inspiration from that...just wanted you to know. Great work.

    The first one reminds me of Hogarth's colour scheme in his Dynamic Wrinkles and Drapery book. The others are - beautiful. Only in the last one the neck area is a bit too thick or maybe undefined. Looks like you got carried away drawing thos dreadnoughts (spelling???)
