Awright, boring style, but hey.
Worked outwards from the nose in a kind of spiral, as a new way to approach painting.
Concentrated on tone as I am absymally bad at it...
Photoshop Elements 2 XD
1 Mirror, my head hurts >_>
Here is my self portrait, crits welcome!
This is really fun! PS7 and 1 hour at 5 in the morning Halloween me - the funniest Crow ever (infact I was taking revenge by tickling my enemies to death).
wow great job everybody, its 12:30 here, and i just finished my portrait using photoshop and a picture for reference, keep em coming
I have not contributed any artwork to this site in the longest time (hence the reason i still suck) but its good to be back.
Mechanical pencil and mirror, not to bad for a relative noob

Wow people! There's some killer artwork in here...
Sve; yours is very nice, and I can definetely recognise you immediately.
Heres what I did this morning, I'm not happy at all with it, but ah well, will do some more later today.
I guess I shouldn't have gone crazy with the markers after I finished the pencils, and the right side of the face (viewers left) is kinda messed up ^^
ah shit post it somewhere els, post it here again .
medium > pencils 2B
