    I have been trying to upload my sp from last month for like a week now, but the site I use is totally F*ed up, so I am not sure what to do. The links just plain won't work.

    [edit]
    Jens, where do you upload your images that they stay up for long periods of time?

    Cutter- http://www.250free.com/

    i've only had it die once in a year, and i seem to now get loads of bandwidth...

    give them a try.

    I'll be back here this month when i've got my teaching placement and reports out of the way- no wonder there's a shortage of teachers here, with all this work to do just to qualify.... :-p great work so far, jens, watch the size of the eyes.

    @stormeffex: sweet! great emotion and a real cool use of colors.

    @bretton: the kind of way you used to shade the face, absolutely awesome! inspired me a lot.

    Clearly a work in progress. The proportions, color and angle of the face is way off. Oh, and did I mention it would have been better if I would have gotten my lazy arse off the chair and gotten a mirror? LOL!December Self Portraits

    Impressive speed! I'm not sure if I could do that.

    It's the same image as my avatar. Not a recent drawing, but I've never shown it here. It's part of a slightly larger rendering that took about 5 hours....

    Okay, after my dorky acrylic, I thought I should post this chalk self portrait. This way you can think of me as a 90 year old crazy woman with some kinda oozing eye. LOL! This self portrait stuff has been a whileDecember Self Portraits

    Tonight was last lifedrawing class of this year, we had a 'drink' (everyone brought food and drinks). I talked for the second time to this japanese girl who I like very much, then we talked some more on the way to the bus, and then.. I got confused and just minutes after we went both our ways I realised I could have proposed her for a drink or something... anything. Now I've got to wait 20 more days to see her again because of the holidays! argh. I feel crap and a little happy at the same time. I did this one to try and think about something else :/

    Good work everyone.

    I have spent the last two months working on a large oil painting of my kids. Finally got that done and really needed to do one of myself.

    About 1.5 hours in Painter 8 with pencil, charcoal, and palette knife.

    There are some cool portraits this month, just not a lot of them. I am figuring vacations and holidays are getting in the way...

    Last day of December, my first time trying to be serious with acrylics. I'm not a fan of New year's resolutions, but hopefully I'll make SPs a regular thing from now on .
