    555 self portraits

    I decided to make another thread for self portraits. This way I can see more things and sometimes experiment with different techniques. I will update it about once or twice a week.

    So far I have made few sp's. Here they are in chronological order.

    looks like you're getting older and older! hehe

    Anyway, my advice is to be more natural with your pencil strokes especially when you start shading/hatching. When there is one big part of the face that is covered in shadow, lay it in with a middle tone with no hesitation. Don't be afraid. Keep a sharp pencil and use its side for the shading/hatching. Hold the end( the one without the lead of course) of your pencil between your index finger, middle finger, and thumb, then start shakin it!

    I like 15/06/2005 BTW. That's good lighting. I like the amount of reflected light you have there. I assume you're caucasian? You'll notice in darker pigmented objects or persons, the reflected light is much more subtler.

    One thing you have to be astutely aware of are forms within the shadow. Still very important. Usually indicated by darker accents within. Such forms can be the eyebrows, nostrils, iris, dimples etc. Or even subtler, like the zygomatic bone(cheek), the muscles inside, etc. A good study of anatomy helps of course.

    patdzon - Yes, you're right. I'm getting older but not as fast as here, hehe . These last self portraits are more accurate, I think. Anyway, you can compare them to photo in my profile (I am caucasian btw).

    Here's new one. I had small problems with eyes.

    Strange question:

    Are you british?

    I'm only laughing on the outside.
    My smile is just skin deep.
    If you could see inside I'm really crying.
    You might join me for a weep.
