    September! First month of Spring here...best time of year, although summer isn't too bad either, except for the scorching heat.

    Anyway, nice work so far-
    Matt- looks good, even unfinished...if you were to finish it I'd suggest adding another colour somewhere to help it leap out a bit more.

    Rusty- Nice style. How'd you do the background?

    Well that's it for my insight crits so far...

    been a long time eh?
    anyway.. i've got some crappy fooling around today - so unhappy with it i tried to cover the mess up only to make it worse. Well... that's my fate i guess


    comments:
    Matt - thx for starting the thread. you had a nice start there - pitty you didn't finish.
    Rusty - you bastard - great one again. love the colors and all.
    Darkside - welcome to the sick side
    Try to focus more on the form. Try to make it seem 3D. measure! look.look.look. Pay more attention to the shapes. Forget color for now, and forget values - for start try to make it look like you and try to make it look 3D )like a low-poly model if you want)

    Wow, Oblio . . . that yellow and purple one is amazing. The forms are so well defined and the brush strokes are beautiful.
    I haven't seen you post something like this before--you must be holding out on us! I want to see what else you can do.

    Darkside the new one is much better form-wize exept the nose is facing forward when the rest of the face is at an angle. And with your old one it seems like theres nothing past your cheeks, try adding the other ear and a neck. Both would help add depth. And I agree with the others when they say forget the colour for now. Work with form, then values, then colour. I'm going to try something with colour tomorrow for the first time since my first sp(which was not such a great idea looking back on it).
    When drawing/painting these, compair where one piece of your face is compaired to another. Look at one of the curves of your face. Compair where that curve is to the nearest object, like an eye, draw the eye in compaired to the curve. Then repeat the process. putting each peace in compaired to another pieces position. The same goes with the values, which are much easier to put in once you've positioned the rest of your face.

    Most importantly, practice, practice practice.

    been away from this for too long, but sometimes that lets you persivere longer..

    September Self Portraits

    I should work more on this but it ran away from me, the face turned by its self and the colours well, lets not mention then :-p

    Darkside- good progress, for the nose, one thing i find helpful is to ignore the nostrils untill you have the form, and for every part of the face, look at the way other people solve the problems.

    oblio- i acnt see yours again, all i see are fortune city placeholders...

    rusty- very nice, it looks really iconic. how did you do it? ink wash and markers?

    matt smith- you're getting better and clearly having fun doing it, i preferred last months ones personally, but the only complaint i could make is that you dont sharpen these up enough, which gives them an out of focus fuzzyness, maybe try using a hard brush?


    keep up the good work folks
