    Leiana's Daily Self Portraits

    None of my friends told me about the self portrait day, so this is my first post here, but don't go easy on me ;<

    Leiana's Daily Self Portraits

    PS- yes, I asked Farvus if I could use his idea for the name of the thread ;<

    Hey! Great portrait to submit, even if it was a little late. Is that your natural hair color?
    I have a small critique... the colors seem a little too muted. I just thought you could bring out the darks and lights a little more, more so the darks.
    Looks great, anyway!

    After viewing Farvus' portraits, I've decided to take on the same venture, and I hope I have enough discipline to do it!

    Good job with those self portraits. I especially like first and the last one.
    The beginning might be difficult but later you'll get used to posting daily .

    Nunch- My hair's more magenta, and yes it's my real hair. I'm not just being artsy and such. My hairs been this color for the past 4 or 5 months. I appreciate your crits, and I'll try to get more darks in in the upcoming pieces

    Farvus- Thanks for the encouragement ;> I tend to need it

    oo very nice portraits, I really like that you're using the color of your background and working your toning around that. I especially like the one's from the 30th, great usage of the soft edge brush; you modeled your face's form out very nicely.

    some advice I can offer if you do another more rendered digital piece like your first post is just to use a really large brush when you're blocking in your forms and such. that's something I've learned from the people here and it really does make rendering and creating forms much easier. you might know that already, but figured I'd just throw that out there also, something Farvus suggested to me for my self portraits was to not be afraid to take the time and measure out your features with guide lines and such... I hope that helped. keep up the good work!

    Onir- my large brush that i like (the one like the oC brush) is broken in my photoshop. it just does circles instead of what it's supposed to do. I should get painter. I took your advice and measured more than usual on this one. Thanks for the crit ;>

    The self portrait from post nr 8 is my new favourite. Really nice use of highlights and rendering the form.
    Keep it up!
