    Trying to get away from over rendering everything, so I kept this kind of loose.

    painted this one in the dark using the monitor as my light source, ill try to get better values next time... used only one funky brush that i made

    October!!!

    danomight: those lips are looking pretty flat(evident on the opening), wider range of values would be good too... keep it up

    skuli: thanks yeah those are some big eyes.. how long do these usually take you? u should spend more time on one really fleshing out the values to the max but before going on a shading fest making sure the proportions are correct

    bort: crazy

    arghmisfit - Thanks for the crit man, really pushed me to give it another go today. You have some great sp's so far, keep it up.

    Skuli - Same as argh said, eyes a bit big, but looks cool none the less, gives it a bit of a caricature feel. I have a bunch of sp's where I run out of steam as well. keep on postin.

    Used 4b lead this time instead of hb to get a batter value range, I think I tend sculpt the drawing a bit better with softer lead.

    Hey. This is my first art post on these forums so, I'm just introducing myself with a little self portrait.

    Nothing much to say. Just a quick pencil sketch I did a couple nights ago. Not too much shading, but I havn't sketched in a while, and havn't done a self portrait in... ever.

    Unfortunately, my scanner is not big enough to get the whole image, so I scanned it in two sections and merged them together in PS. The problem is that the lip at the edge of the scanner forces the paper a few milimeters off the surface, so the image gets slightly darker at the edge. And when I merged it, there was an ugly dark area going through the middle. Oh well. Didn't feel like cleaning it up at the time, so here ya go.

    October!!!

    Hopefully, I'll be getting a 9x12 WACOM Intuos3 soon, and I can finally do some digital painting.

    ok, worked on this for about an hour this morning.

    October!!!



    Dune - Keep going. Painting with color is mostly about getting the values correct so it defines the form. I would do more black and white value studies of your face, and focus on getting the structure and form correct before you add the confusing extra dimension of color to the mix.

    skuli - I think you should find a three-way mirror so you can draw your head from different points of view. If you cant get one of those the next best thing is to put the mirror in your lap and look down at it, or something. just try all kinds of different stuff, and add in a harsh light sources like Arghmistfit to create some dense shadows.

    Been awhile since I've had the time to participate in anything. I started this self-portrait last night and hope to finish it soon. It's been enlarged from a thumbnail sketch so it's still a little pixellated.

    Probably the best one I've done so far, though. Drawn immediately after reading some inspiring advice from Andrew Jones.

    Yeah - I hadn't attempted a single colour for a couple of months before that post. So now I'm back on the black... and white. But damn it was fun playong with colour - even if it was for just a day.

    Gone a bit skewed but...

    This is an open thread, yeah? If not delete this or whatever.

    Kinda grim first work post, but gotta start somewhere and I don't want to be the guy who just lurks in the lounge and never posts their own stuff.

    This is the first time I've picked up a brush for about 8 years and I had an hour and a half to do it in, hopefully I'll get better.

    October!!!

    Edit: yay, I did it, I posted something. Feel free to kill it to death with crits, but it's still a personal scary milestone done in my world.
