    Uuuuu.... I would love to know how you did these. Did you use a blending stump?

    All three slightly differ, I like the first one the most.

    I don't have any crtiques right now, can't point anything out!

    EDIT: The first time I checked this thread, the photoshop portrait didn't come up, so I didn't notice it. Now that I see it, I see you render great, and realistic as well, no matter what medium so far. Except the only thin to work on would be your body. Right now, the neck and chest seem kind of like one blob. The shoulders seem kind of slouched, and broken.

    Hey, sorry Gamerhomie- I'm new to this whole forum thing, haven't been back here since I posted those pics. Thanks for the compliments.

    - As for your question: I only use blending stumps for detail because of the sharp points. other than that, I only use tissue(Kleenex) for the blending, and erasers for detail. Can't stand the stumps. The paper quality also helps.

    - The photoshop painting isn't really a complete piece either. Basically just focused on the head- the first time I've ever used photoshop to do a painting like this. It was very time-consuming. I do need to go in and finish it up though.

    Here's a detail...

    Didn't go too crazy on the details- just enough to get me by in class.

    I used a mirror as much as possible (mostly). But ended up taking photo's for reference after I had a good base on the extreme pose.

    thanks for the comments- really appreciate it.

    thanks Soja, you have gotten much better since your first post. I sketch every chance I get, and that's what it takes.

    here's the line art for my latest self portrait. haven't gotten around to scanning the rendered version. (inspired by Carlos Haunte)
