    February Self Portraits

    woohooo heheh my time to start the monthly SP thread (if I may, may I? )

    Tried a 'softer' approach, initially laid out everything with smoothed borders (always my beloved Soft Pastel brush in Painter).. then I tried not add too much detail. This is weird, after working on this about 2h30, I look at my previous SP's and they look like my graphics card 's doing a realtime 'sharpen' filtering on everything... eeek.

    I'm supposed to smile. Hell, I got a date today, I should be !

    I'm sorry I only have comments and not a sp I'll try to get back into habit and have one at least by the end of the month

    faB: Just had to post to write that your ear looks great really full of life.

    Xen: Dude draw one where you put down a lot of time...since this quick one is good.

    Nike: Don't mind getting a better photo draw another one instead

    Me!!!!

    OK, this is in my sketcheroo too, but I need to post more than I do. This was done the other night in an hour or so of drawing and playing Shadow Hearts: Covenant. Not finished, but it's the general piece.

    Fab: Wonderful piece, you remind me of, I just lost his name... Dave Matthews!
    Xen: I just love the way it was done. The shadows... Everything! This is epic in such a small space.
    Nike: Lovely color. I mean crazy good!
    End: Wow...

    klinesmoker > Cool, how do you get the shading like that? smudgestick?

    Xen > As a big fan of the regular pencil I salute you. very cool, but I'd like to see it finished, has something of a unfinished feel about it.

    FaB > Thats FaBulous.. I know I know, bad pun. But damn good nonetheless.

    The rest is good also, keep up the good work people, hut hut, keep posting!

    Ten minutes quick portrait. Makes me look younger than I really am, not sure how to add 'age' to my portraits tho.
