    x( too busy to draw!!

    wow, i have been really busy lately, i am so tired from staying up late and getting up early that i am starting to write some of my japanese letters backwards. (not good considering the fact that i have been studying jap for 3 years now)..

    mind flaw, i must say that your sp's are looking Much better. keep up the good work.

    wazzo -- i am completely with you, it is scary and depressing to see bush get re-elected. i thought that kerry was doing soo good.. i was so depressed after i heard that that i was physically incapable of doing anything creative or artful (is that even a word?) for the entire day...
    It is scary to think that we will have a sp.ed. for a president for the next four years... I don't know about everyone else, but i greatly fear the draft. I know that he promised not to use it, but he also promised the nation that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. a lie, to put it politely. on the plus side, I have found that when recruiters call my house and ask if i would be interested in joining the armed forces (i have had about 2 dozen calls in the last few months), that if i tell them that I am going to major in art, or that i am an artist, that they quickly end the conversation.

    burning eyes, your color sp looks sweet! amazing, very well done

    jondan, interesting, not bad.

    i will draw a sp soon, i promise!! lat3r people

    I wanted to paint, dammit, so I start to make a rough sketch , and then I battle on for 4 hours trying to get this right. There is at least 2 slightly different angles in this image, I give up I think I need to work on construction... drawing in '2d' is just a tracing game, not fun. Very frustrating in fact...

    not much to say today..

    mindflaw : you're improving, those eyes dont look like almonds now, nice job, now do the same for the lips, break them down in planes, and the nose too, the top sits on bone, but the bottom part made of cartilage is very unique to each person, the width, thickness of nostrils, the width of the tip of the nose, the curve of it (hard to draw/ see on front views)...

    keep it up everyone and dont get discouraged..

    KlumsyK : whoa, that's good. How did you start this portrait, with the head shape, or the inside ? What do you use for reference pt for measuring and putting everything into place ?

    Here's that bloody painting I wanted to do in artrage in the first place.. screw proportions

    I dont understand what's going on, why is it so hard to just draw things into proportion??? *cries*

    ps: thanks cutt3r I checked android's page and yeah his statement is very inspiring. Which I could relate to art like that. I'm jealous of people who know what they want to do and never looked back.

    Wow, some really cool portraits so far.

    I've been a bit busy lately, and need to crack the whip of artistic motivation.

    But, today I came home to a lovely suprise. My sister did a portrait of me, using a photo ref. awwww, love ya E. Her's is better than any of my drawn ones

    I am going to take it into Painter8.

    I just finished this. My very first digital self-portrait. I figured I've been here almost three years so it's about time I inflict my ugly mug on the conceptart.org community...And yes, ladies, I'm single. Can you believe it?

    20-40 minutes in painter. Something like that. I wasn't really keeping track.

    just a quicky tonight, not alot of time to draw at the moment but i had to chip in at the start of yet another month. good work so far!

    I cant believe i've been doing this for a year (even if that was minimal contributions) I hope i've improved at least a little. I see improvements in all the regulars here but it is hard to see your own progress, but i have to remind myself i do this for the enjoyment of the process.

    comments at a later date, i need to get to sleep, teaching is tiring work..

    cheers all

    my turn ;)

    <cough cough>
    as a new member, and as a total beginner in photoshop painting(this is one is my 2nd finished one on photoshop, still a "padawan in learning"), here is my contribution to the thread
    It does look a little bit straight on a "flat" screen - Ive changed computer to post this and uh, this is NOT the same thing LOL! - and colors are strange right now (lol again, aaah the joy of different screens, aaah) but here it is nevertheless:
