Hi everybody. I'm new in conceptart, congratulations to the creators, this is the best idea for improving.
I know I have to improve a lot, but that isn't a excuse to try to do a self-portrait every day (I will try it, I promise..). Any comments will be well received.
I spent about 40 minutes (a lot of time I know) to do all this with artrage.

its nice, but it feels a little inconsistent. theres almost no middleground with the line work - its all either one thickness or nothing at all. keep it up tho, and i do advise you draw everyday, try to keep the thread updated (cause if you dont its kinda a waste eh )
Thanks for the comment, I'm agree with you, and also I'm trying to keep this updated. Hey, I have looked some of your newest works, very good man.
Here is the quick sketch I used yesterday like tracing paper in the tablet. I notice than my tablet make difficult to match little lines.
Today I tried to do another one more accurated with pencil. I used an HB for the layout and 2B, 4B for the filling.
I spent no more than 55 minutes to do this, I try to spent less than one hour in each portrait. I notice than left side of the head looks a little distorted, specially the eye. (I need a bigger mirror).
Another one of this inexpresive but lovely man (oh it's me!).

Trying to draw bigger.
This one was really bad, couldn't match the proportions, and used for experiment with photoshop.
More sketched, but the same time. One hour and 20 min .
Uops! A quick sketch in 20 min. I hope to do it better tomorrow.

you should study the major facial muscles, if you dont already.
this is a pretty good side shot of the major muscles. there form has a lot to do with what you get on the surface. you could start inserting contours of these muscles inside the face. that will give it better form, and in turn make it easier to understand lighting.

Thanks for the advice los! That's a good reference to help me.
I'm studying the bones now, but I think I can take a look also in muscles.
I'm going to execute only self-portraits similar of this.
This took me more than two hours!
