    Nice stuff Ni, I like your use of colors in the first painting. But that signature is awfully big isn't it? Kinda detracts away from the painting. Anyways...

    October SP

    Here's a boring ol' SP from the front that I did for practice on the 1st...I haven't done one of these in a loooooong time. So, I figured why not. I was trying to depict a little bit of a facial expression here instead of having a blank stare. Well...I guess I do have a blank stare but it's the expression that counts . I'm gonna do a 3/4(or some fraction) SP as soon as it gets darker here. I like drawing when there's only a lamp for lighting

    Here's a silouette sp this time using my shadow instead of mirror going as simple as possible.

    Jondan: *uses presumptuous voice (the kind where you want to strangle the person using it* It's not the tool that matters but what you do with it

    sula_nebouxi: like your sp , one thing though is that your background tone/value is very similar to the value in your shade making you appear to be in a fog - melting in to the background a bit.

    Ni*: Hey like the second one the best. Have fun you too
    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    Thanks for the crit Mindflaw...I was kinda going for that my-face-just-popped-outta-the-shadows look . I'll try pushing some of the values a little more, especially the background.

    Howdy, I haven't posted here since... forever.

    October SP

    ~3h, Corel Painter Classic, Oil Pastel.

    Left eye (right on image) gave me lots of trouble.. eyes always give me trouble. Value wise it seems to lack contrast, I tend to paint in the upper range of values, dont know why, guess I'll have to do lots of value studies..

    Criticism most welcome.

    sula_nebouxi : other than what mindflaw mentioned, it looks stretched out horizontally. Features look good though.

    Ni* - I like the second one much better. It seems very loose and quick, but holds up very well.
    sula_nebouxi - I like the way it started, but it seems that you rendered from the inside out in this one. Like all of your time went on the eyes and glasses, but fizzled outward. Try blocking in the whole shape first and then render out... keep it up.
    jondan - Hhahah. That's great. I love the characature style. No offense, but you look like Dennis Miller in The Fonz's jacket.
    Mindflaw - Interesting minimalism.
    faB - I really like this. It seems like you captured the tones very well. Very smooth and defined.
    Jens - I think that the "stylized" one works. Simple, but effective.
    one2hit - I like the pencil work, but I think that you need more contrast in your shadows, especially around the neck and background to make the face pop.
    I0N - Very interesting duel "portrait".

    whoa, the month's starting off with some rad variety. glad to see you in here too, nate! one tip for you, is try shading your eyelids. they are also round like your eyes and should be darker at the corners whether you have eyeshadow on or not [not that you wear eyeshadow]

    alright, here are a couple sps [from sept ] to start me off. there's more in my sketchbook thread.. didn't want to spam this place.
