    Devastating (but true) Critique is welcome and encouraged **Pokes you with stick** Thanks fellas.

    One thing to work out is the way you paint hair, you might have to use a softer brush or create a brush with a different shape. Cause right now it's a bit sharp and scratchy overall. Also watch the size of the eyes.

    well actually I purposely made the eyes bigger than they really are because since Im an artist I CAN (thats the beauty of it )

    jens- thanks yeah, i did it like the day before i left reading week so it was still wet and i left it. Im back at college now but i play on doing another SP in oils when I get the chance. Hectic courseload haha i love it.

    Ive seen your latest stuff and goes to show mileage is really where its at. Good experimentations I have been watching your progression for a long time now.

    molly -agreed. I will definitely pay attention to those areas next time! Good SP... awesome form and good development of the features. Only thing i could catch was that the neck doesnt seem as cylindrical as it could be. You have a really good model to work from haha.

    dunefish - try out a longer sitting and punch those values more. Go from big brushes to smaller ones at the end

    cgfuller - nice layout and good painting, one thing i noticed right away is the eye needs a bit more work, seems awkward and flat like.

    waffle - nice, maybe you exaggerated the ears a bit much.

    patz- nice and quick, gestural.

    scootz- well done maybe if u had a stronger light source next time u could play with the contrast?

    egets - pretty nice. good lips. one thing about the hair - try to do it in value and form before strands and details. we really dont see every string we see the hair in groups if you look at it.

    malone - cool, the first one reminds me of the duran duran squiggle lol. 2nd could use more time on it

    art addict - nice u really spent a while on it. Did u use 2 mirrors to do a profile or a photo reference? really strong values without overdoing it. nice and subtle and realistic. maybe for the next i would find a core shadow and eccentuate that area. i really like the hair it almost looks like its on fire

    this caricaturish self portrait made me realise why I have always fancied Jack Nicholson: I look like him

    or what do you think yourself ?

    Hey, all. I've mostly been a lurker here and haven't posted much in the past. So, here's to the future!

    Here's a self portrait I just finished for my life drawing class. w00t! Sorry the quality isn't really that great. It was taken with a digital camera since it was too big for my scanner.

    egets - you do not do yourself justice! Im sure you do NOT look like Jack Nicholson in real life! hehe - caricature huh? not a bad idea...maybe we should start a caricature thread? it would be interesting to see how we all actually see ourselves...

    endregan - thank you
    Art_Addict - nice; the neck and the ear look fine to me I like this piece very much - but how did you tackle drawing profile?
    Bishop Six - very nice values; good observation...
