    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...

    *reminds self to get a wacom*

    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

    Been a while, but I'm back hopeully weekly

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

    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

    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.

    About an hour in Painter 8 with Liquid Ink.
    October SP

    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.

    wow those are really cool. I've been thinking a lot about how the eyes work lately, and looking at mine a lot. I've discovered that I have no eyelids, lol. They are very very subtle. I think you can see it better on paper, than in this scan, but I did shade them. I should have exagerated it though to bring it to life on paper. I always love your self portraits Nova! they are rich!

    here's one from september:

    Self Portrait

    October SP

    OpenCanvas3.03, 4 hours 36 minutes
    As most of you know I have issues using...color. I got lazy and obviously didn't finish -- I'll have to try to clean up more of it later. I spent too long on it and I'm just too tired to continue; this is embarassing since there are already so many good ones up here! Seriously, the quality of work in here has really stepped up a notch or two!
    Ni*: Good to see you, I like the one on top with the more intense shading.
    sula_nebouxi: Very subtle shading techniques make for a nice effect; it's a very soft portrait. Excellent job on the glasses.
    jondan: That is so much fun!
    Mindflaw: !!!
    FaB: Wow, just wow; the colors -are- bright but it's a great piece.
    Jens: The confidence of your strokes is great; I like the wild shading on the top one.
    one2hit: The detail in both pieces is nice -- I think you do a really good job of capturing the way the light works, too (refering mostly to the shadows cast by hat and specs)!
    I0N: So creepy...both of them! I especially like some of the effects you have going on with the white swirls on the blue one.
    shadoman: I'm lovin' the monotone work; the nose and brow are brought out nicely. Intense!
    nova: Those rock, the flower one in particular. I've always been a fan of your line work; throwing the color on it is just awesome.
    Good job, everyone. : )

    It was some sort of grin.. but it's all messed up the angle gave me trouble. The view was meant ot be a little from below, and sideways titlted, I think the angle doest come off in the pic I gotta put a poster behind me so I paint something else than a pale yellow wall lol

    October SP

    shadoman: I like that SP, it feels solid

    asbetoshazard : looks alright, colors give it a little 'sad' feeling. If you have problems with color you could try a black and white portrait to concentrate on light/shadow and the volume they define, you can always take it into photoshop and add color through a layer afterwards, or make a monochromatic image, with a warm or cold tone. For me the easiest way would be Painter Classic (assuming you have a graphic tablet), and the chalk or oil pastel with a light color on dark bgnd and just shade everything through the pen pressure.

    For both colors & drawing really the hardest part I find is to stop seeing your face and see just what is there.. for color stop seeing red lips or pink skin or brown hair, but paint what is there. And *squint* *squint* *squint* and.. *squint* some more..

    The Swift : good job, I like how you rendered the hair

    Grayscale portraits from now on till my eyes stop lying to me, I butchered the mouth/chin/eye in the shadow side, dammit for once I had pretty much nailed one of my eyes I gotta sleep.

    EDIT: dammit, I painted the forehead too long

    Ok got a new agenda I've started to draw the outline of the head first (I think it will improve my way to look at things) then the features and I'm spending less time at each sp now so that I can do one a day without a morale failure. Hopefully there will be improvements. Don't comment on this one since I'm to aware of it's flaws as it is

    October SP

    cotron: nice 8) , check out the space between the eye seems to wide. The spaces between the eye and ear seem correct since you look slightly to my left.

    faB: sounds like a good idea, when you start using colour again you can make an extra copy and turn it into grayscale mode to see if you were tricked by the colours.

    -The Swift-: Great sp! to really nitpick check out the pupils if they are pointing in the exact same direction seems like they are very slight off but it might just be me I'm always slight off in just about everything

    Molly: The second one I really like. You look very different in the two sp:s like in the first you look like white person and in the other one asian, perhaps you're both just looked at your face differently? Anyway in the first one the eyes is to wide apart, you might try this: When you have painted a while stop and check proportions to see if they are correct,(since you most of the time you see more and more as you paint). That way you may correct the proportions and stuff like that as you progress with the painting. That has at least improved me somewhat, when it comes to proportions and such even if I have miles to go yet. Anyhow you're second one is a huge improvement no matter how you look irl. Make sure to post more sp:s I could even be your fanboy in this thread if you want (and if they are at least as good as the second one).

    Jens: TWOHUNDRED MAN... TWOHUNDRED THATS GREAT!
    I got some sp:s to go heh... some? I mean many before I get to where you are

    ION: You got some cool sp:s going on. When it comes to the two green and red sp:s I think the first one works much better composition-wise (talking about how the colours works togheter). I think so because in the first one they work togheter to center the "eye" (my eye) on the your face, but in the second they start to compete a little about the attention, not that much but anyway thats how I perceive it.

    asbestoshazard: Hey that green don't do you justice

    one2hit: nice sp:s liked the first one the best.

    nova: Hey dude, your sp you did in the challenge was real good that one deserved a doublepost here too . I noticed some cool textures in your sp:s in some spots where you painted red over the black (shows in the second one), maybe you should explore it some more, you know work with it like the black ink was watercolour pencils and go over it with some coloured ink like red.

    shadoman: your sp looks a little like it was made of clay strange enough your ear-ring shows a lot or at least it caught my attention.

    cutt3r, resize please? for those of us with 1024 x 768 and lower it streaches the whole forum around and makes it hard to see the image. (edit: cool)

    here's a quick red sharpie SP I did when I was falling asleep last night.
