who's shall be first?:chug:
10 min speed sp - i just wanted to be first
btw: where's oblio?
an older one... but I'm gonna start posting more... so yeah.
Took a break from the oil and did this one.
Retro - Not bad for a 10 minute job That oil is coming, it's a learning exercise for me right now, I've never used oils before and I'm running into a lot of problems I have to fix. It's fun though.
Oblio - Nice to see you again man, please do more SP's again sometime soon. This place has gone dead.
Ravaran - Nicely done, I would have liked to see a little more play with your edges. Right now all your edges are a little sharp, some softer edges could help unflatten spots and bring more form. Keep them coming.
Ah heres a SP of mine...
Id say it was within the hour, 2 hour range.
everyone's off to a great start!
so i decided andrew's not to the only one to do shirtless self portraits
Nice job everyone!
Blackhawk-pay attention to the shadow on the neck and chin, there could be more of a hint of reflected light under the chin to give it depth. It looks great!
Toaster- watch your proportions. draw it out on paper first. Your forehead is too short and eyes are too big, nose too long. great use of color
nova-good job....lets see more
i thought i was the only person that was allowed to see nova naked
Davi Im all curious now lol, dont think she is naked anyway... :eek: or am I missing out something.
P.S Great job guys, I don\t have any self potrait but... next time maybe
An artist cannot fail, it is a success to be one.
I think you guys need to get out more. :cuddle:
Benzo: If you saw my face you would understand =P My Art teacher says it reminds her of a Magliani (sp?) painting...
Oh and my forehead is covered up by hair that falls down and curls up =P
hmm. i tried a painting attempt, but spoilt it badly. so i went with this fake charcoal instead.
@nova: i like that last piece, though you look a bit like from the planet vulcan
@blackhawk: just take your time. still i am "gespannt wie ein flitzebogen" like some weird people in germany used to say
@oblio: any chance we can see some of your latest experiments..?
Someone - please put me out of my misery
New task - Do your Retro face
I've tried and.. well see for yourself.
Retro: my latest experiments? show me yours i'll show you mine
when you'll show your painting experiments... i'll post my crapy sketches. come on - we can both learn and rock!
davi - it looks like you still are the man get that smile back.
Ironspy - you got Oblio's point there
Nova - superb values - strong post lines too Keep em comming
Toaster - umm.. lovely colors. The line on the left (edge of your face) bothers me like hell.
Blackhawk - thank you frined - here - i'm back for a day or two - depends on the time (it's hell here).
You rock harder and harder man - you're getting super good. That left eye is misplaced though :chug:
well.. see you soon.
usually i dont like posting without a pic, but:
OBLIO THIS IS SUPER COOL!!!!!!!
i absolutely love it!!!
btw: aint i posting enough crap already?! ok, i gonna scan some shit tomorrow, get yours ready too.
Females....how they love to mess with your head...
nova: very nice..has an old B&W movie feel to it.
Toaster: Sweet, I love the colors you used, very bold!
Blackhawk: Damn that is sweet...though it looks like you have a cold
Ravaran: excellent use of negative space.
Obilio: Your growth knows no bounds....I can't believe how good you've gotten. Truely an inspiration.
MISPLACED FEATURES AHOY!!
Benzo - Yeah, your right. I didn't notice much of a reflected light when observing, but every little bit helps and it doesn't hurt to help pop out spots. I'll have to make note of that next time. I also thought the shirt got a little flat as well, I could have used something else there.
Oblio - Bad ass man. Your getting better and better, you just never see it Great work and thanks. Yeah, I noticed something was funky with either the eyes or the nose. I think it may be the nose, it's too short and shifted for my actual features. It's my problem right now, I either hit the nose too short or too long. It's funny though how you fix one problem spot and another rears it's ugly head. I still remember the terrible time I had with getting the eyes on the same axis, ugh... lol. Time, practice, perseverence, and patience are what is needed.
Nova - Nicely done. Nose form, especially around the nostrils is kind of funky, but overall good piece, plus it's shirtless, and we can't complain with that .
Retro - I am taking my time, I'm still going to crank these out until I get it done. I find myself attacking it in spurts right now. I just need to really sit down and paint for awhile. Good work man.
Wizard - Nice colors man, perspective and feature angles seem odd, but your use of color is great. Very dramatic and very nicely done.
Toaster - Watch out for proportions and feature placement. Everything seems a bit elongated. Really look and you'll see it. Keep it up though bud and great work. Keep working and growing.
im not in the mood a posting even more crap today. maybe tomorrow.
i don't like this one i had trouble with the nose and mouth so i just left them out
uh - come on people? Roll those Sp's
First - a huge Thank YOu to you all.
I dind't had much time for drawing lately so this comes like a nice surprise for me too. Just o see if i'm still at it - here goes another one (mostly becouse i've already did some cast drawing earlier)
i've used a photo for ref - but i've exagerated a bit. just a bit.
 uh - after posting it i see tons of flaws. no time to fix now.
RETRO - Wanna join me? Everyone is invited. HERE

im really bad at painting so i am just going crazy with the colours for now...im going to try to be more subtle..
i started a few...then i realized how badly i wanted a wacom tablet so i gave up and did a really messy one with a mouse in PS7
a glimpse at my failed attempts....
ew...what was i thinking with the colors
Thanks for the comments Blackhawk, I totally see what you're saying about the perspectives...that and my nose is freaking huge! lol.
Well here is another....I wanted to make myself look like a statue...I have normal version without the noise if anyone wants to see it.
Ugh, everything broke on me today.
I'll comment tomorrow when I wake up, I'm exhausted and I feel like shit.
good job everyone! (i'm not smart enough to say anything constructive)
ugh...can't wait til i get a wacom
Worked off a picture feed from my webcam while playing a nice selection of music from Live. I lost focus somewhere in the shading. Too tired to do any coloring, but this is miles better than the last... er, attempt.
"It’s easier not to be wise
And measure these things by your brains
I sank into Eden with you..."
Blackhawk: You do amazing work.
Wizard Of KOZ: The last one reminds me of UT
slowpoke: The first one in your series of three is fantastic.
I couldn't keep up the smile
This time it was the Doves.
Webcams are very handy for this type of thing.
