    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:

    ION: whoah, there's a certain rawness to this one, nice!

    I tried the 'grisaille' method once demonstrated by Andrew Jones, I think in one of his SPOD, there was a 7-step demo, here is the thread. I dont know where I found the grisaille step-by-step image though but it is from this portrait of Android.

    Also I finally did a SP like he advised when he used to post here : drawing the eyes first and drawing everything else in relation to the eyes, nose and mouth.

    I'm not too fond of the background in this final version, but I kept it out of curiosity : it is plain 0% saturation gray, but it looks colored to me.

    I think that's the best ear I've painted yet

    edit: aah, here's the grisaille demo from Andrew Jones, that's how you should do it. Mine sucks !

    faB, that is awsome! i think, the background looks blueish because your eyes expect color in relation to the colored face...somehow...

    oh, and can your do a happy one next time?
