Ok...so i'm 20 minutes early. just had to beat OB to it. he he he he.
It's been a while...
Alawys glad to get feedback
forget about the eye glasses and the photoshop lense flare...these were added as an after thought.
[I know the glasses look like they're floating on my face and that the lense flare is cheap...I appologize to all you guys out there]

Just got off from work, cranked this out, and then I gotta hit the sack and be back to work in the morning. Comments tomorrow night for you guys hopefully. I'm glad a few of you got a good laugh from my sick one. I'm feeling a hell of a lot better now, still a bit under the weather though.
hey faxtar great work, the image has an extreme perspective goin on thats really cool almost like a fish-eye lens effect -how long did that take you?
clayrodery: that came out pretty well
zeitzeuge i like that really abstract look
hope everybody had a good weekend...
Ummo: Thanks. It took me about 5-6 hrs. I think the strange perspective is due to the distortion of a cheap digital camera a close range. I printed the pic to use as a reference, so as not to hurt my face. :eek:
Nice pics btw, I like the loose strokes and the expression of the first one. I think adding your hand to a SP always makes things more interesting.
Oblio: Nice, i like the perspective of the first one you did also.
Blackhawk: Great. Get well soon.
zeitzeuge: Very abstract
clayrodery v.03: I like it, blind contours always show alot of character.
reeves: The glasses really add to it. I wish I knew how to use a computer.
See ya. :mrt:
sorry i dont' have to comment now, i got a late night soccer game...but here's is todays
Beautiful work guys, comments tomorrow from class. Have a great evening.
Everybody show me you amazing air guitar skills. Find that uncool CD of trashy guitar music and lets see thouse air guitars. Here is a quick sketch of me listening to AC DC and yes I do feel ashamed that I enjoy that cd .
lionel: you should have created a blank html-site containing the picture and the according midi-file great one.
:rock: :clapping1 :ranting: :nod: :rock: :clapping2 :rock: :nod: :realmad:
Lionel, man, you mind if i play drums in your band?!? Looking at your portrait i totally see you hopping around stage a la Angus Young
ZippZopp that portrait is great. Nice job on the shadows and reflection of light onto your right cheek.
Hey blackhawk i like the simplicity in that one. Is it digital? if so id really like to know how you got that paper texture to work..
I've been reading Frankenstein lately (like for the 1000th time) and realized that I've never seen a drawing of the Creature done based off of the exact description from the original text. So why the hell not do one/self-portrait?
Hope you didn't just eat lunch, hehehe

Incredible SP's yesterday guys. Lionel, Retro, Ummo, Faxtar and Clay, just stunning work guys.
hey clay thats really quite spooky. great job on the scars, and your eyes are really haunting. The extreme lighting on your face makes you look either realy greasy or like your head was dipped in bronze. ..guess it does add to the mood tho.
fax i dont know much about compostion but i think you did very well. the angles of your face are laid out in a sort of criss cross that makes your eye follow around the image. having the left edge be at an angle was a good idea. only thing is that the eye highlight attarcts to much attention to me ad same with the lip in the corner is maybe a tad too dark.
Man i should be drunk right now. Anybody do anything for Mardis Gras? :beer:
Here's the ol' mirror on the lap view:
i played around wih the contrast on this one and it looked much more interesting, but i am posting it as i painted it, as a reminder of how much of a puss i am.

i still havent got my tablet yet so yet another mouse painting ....mirror next to the monitor,25 mins to paint and about 10 mins of filtering......im tired so ill comment tomorow.
i didnt realize there are so many different types o charcoal... :eek:
me again, gotta get back in the habit of contributing more. Heres a quick 2:
Ob- nice, i like the colors u used and the style.
Rusty- great as usual, cant wait to see what it looks like WITH a tablet
retro-looks good, but id love to see it in color
ummo- every time i see ur work i like it more. How long do these take you on average?
i REALLY need to start taking my time...Im so impatient...
retro your charcoal is looking better and better.
Rusty looks like your head is compressed a bit horizontally but nice moody effect.
Oblio you are really skilled at just using a few gestures to define you features.
Hey helltaxi, cool to see you posting in here. I like your second one better, but the lighting on your face in the first is pretty sweet. takes me on average 45 min to do a portrait ...cant usually hold a pose for any longer.
Wow brokencow! thats really bold! i have to learn how to do that! all the colors are really extreme but still appropriate.
retro.that one you posted on the first page where you never really modeled the eyes is my fave.It has an even balance of line and shading,maybe do more in that direction.
ummo your really pumped these out like diareea.lol..great to see alot of them,that upshot one is my fave cause you handled a tricky perspective really well there.....nah its not far of my face proportions,im a tall,thin guy,narrow faced,i think its because i over shadowed the left side alot..
Blackhawk,i know your scanners shot but i really want to see more of yer traditional,get it working if you can....great job as always on these .
Oblio,maybe more traditional,with no digital..exploit the power of the pencil,that makes no sence..lol
Thanks taxi,first one i like but it wouldnt hurt to work on it a bit more(add in small details)..nice haircut by the way...cough,dork,cough....jk m8ty
clay,thats just awesome man,haunting glare on that one,..well done..
I usually dont like photo ref drawings but yours r great Faxtar,great line work,deffinatly put the time into those..
Well executed Zipp..forms r painted really well,something funky bout the eyes though,just dosent have that spark of life,which is probably the hardest part to do on a SP..
nice to see a diff style from ya keyth,..shadows r keyed out well..
just what ummo said brokencow..nice.
that one mustve taken a while lionel,posing then painting,posing then painting,awesome man,hand/arm gestures really help express emtions.
