    Well, most of you're portraits look very alike, so I assume that you look like that! so that means that you're doing a pretty good job in showing us how you are! For variation, try taking photos of your self, and use them as ref. I don't think that's a sin around here... but that's just me. Try using different mirror angles as well, so you can work a little on you're perspective. Some tips in Photoshop: try using different brush types! with textures & stuff... and don't be afraid to go colors! try even simple variations, like maximum 2-4 colors... & that's it! Hope to see more of your Sp's!
    later,

    THe last one is great. Have you ever tried to use one of those pencils from home depot. THe big fat rectangular carpenters pencils? The way your strokes are falling I think it would be a great tool.

    Yandor - thanks! I never used such tool. Of course I could draw those dots with the side of the pencil but I wanted the SP to look sharper.

    I think I have fallen into routine so here is a bit different view. The tool is charcoal pencil. It's a bit like black crayon.

    nice work farvus!

    one suggestion though, take the chiarascuro tonal range that you used in this one and do another SP, pushing all the values to the max. try expirementing with light placement...two lights on either side and slightly behind makes for a really nice, interesting lighting situation...render like hell and try to "GO OFF" on the details of the nose...All that shading is difficult...refuse to let it intimidate you and show it who's the big bad farvus boss.

    oh yeah--> THIS ROCKED MY WORLD! great thread! we can see you learning!

    keep going! keep going!

    guggenmaneuver - thanks for visiting my thread. Self portraits are generally good for practicing realistic rendering. I sometimes do more detailed SP's and sometimes they are just fast doodle. It's a matter of how I feel every day. Right now I have one place where I can put mirror and lamp but I will try to use different lights.

    Here is some ultra fast and loose self portrait done with pen.
