    Wanted to experiment with something different tonight. Not sure how well it came out, but it was fun nonetheless.

    JULY GUEST SP THREAD  (a new month folks!)

    Killing.People - So you do exist? lol. Thanks bud, I appreciate it, I was wondering where you've been.

    Endregan - Thank you. Same thing as last one, be careful of the measurements. The mouth especially looks like it could be positioned a little more accurately. Currently the nose and the mouth are throwing the face into an elongated frown. It's a hard spot to measure up, just be very careful as you study it. If you keep missing the spot again, dont' worry, just intensely measure and see if you can get it as accurate as you can humanly possible, then one up it.

    ZippZopp - Thanks bud. Nice to see you again. Good expression, tones could use a little softening in spots though. All the value shapes seem too hard, throwing some soft edges in there between value transitions should pop this one nicely. Don't overdo it though.

    Keyth - There you are bud. Now POST MORE! Oh, and let's see you mix it up. You have incredible pencil rendering skills, I'd like to see you do one of these in pencil, think of it as a challenge of sorts

    yes thanks blackhawk. its just odd cuz the angle im doing it from is looking down at my tiny mirror so it is distorting and the foreshortening makes it look bad. . I will keep trying though!

    lol, don't ask me what was going on with this one. My mirror base broke and I had no mirror to use tonight, so I just kind of doodled from memory, then let my brain work itself over into this.

    Keyth - LOL. I don't know what I was shooting lasers at, probably all the bullshit I have to go through everyday, lol. Your second July 4th one is stunning, very meaty, beautiful form.

    Endregen - Again, be careful. I think your main problem spot is the nostril, mouth area. Your measuring it wrong and it makes it look like your long in the face. A good trick to help with portraits is to quickly lay down some kind of measurement markings, anything that'll help guide you in the rest of the portrait. That way you can get the proportions accurate before you start hitting the details and values.

    Duracel - That tiger one of you is badass, love it man.

    I.was.ink - Welcome, good to see you posting in this section finally. Good SP's, don't be afraid of the mouth, jaw area. It can be one of the most difficult spots to draw right, but you can never succeed if you don't fail it acouple times. Give it a go.

    Jeff Gran, OneBigCelt, HellTaxi - Welcome guys, good to see stuff from all of you, keep them coming.

    Sorry I shut the comments short. Again, no mirror tonight, just let my brain do it's thing, see what it wanted to do.

    keyth, thx. Your last one is really great too, perhaps a bit dark(-> histogramm) ... perhaps some lighter highlights.
    But i really like those warm colors - summer, isn't it?

    HellTaxi ... dont really like the white-side - but the sp looks fine to me.

    I.was.ink ... pink?? ;D

    Blackhawk, you've really improved since my last visit. Like the outline and the orange colors.

    What a shitty weekend.

    JULY GUEST SP THREAD  (a new month folks!)

    Duracel - Thanks much. You've improved tremendously too, I've been watching a lot of your speed painting stuff over at Sijun, good work.

    Endregan - Some features are beginning to fill out, play with the line weights a bit, experiment a lot, see what kind of effect you can come up with on the form of the drawing. Keep working at it bud.

    Dan Milligan - You are a badass, plain and simple. I love this one, I tried to do a mock of it tonight for my own, but things quickly fell apart from the start. You have a great style.

    Ilex - Nicely done, Play with those warms and cools a bit, see what can happen with the form and the focus when you do. Nice to see you posting again.

    Jeff Gran - You have a great control on the lighting and color, but be careful on the features. Nose form is askew as well as the eye form and placement. Nice work, keep it up.

    Night everyone.

    i tried being more conscious of warms and cools. i have to go back in and get rid of the yellowish green on the forehead/nose/chin and just tone everything down but i have to stay away from it for a bit.

    JULY GUEST SP THREAD  (a new month folks!)


    jeff:i like how some of your face is clear and the rest is blurred out. looks like you were rushin with the hair...would be neat to see this effect developed more.

    blackhawk: this is interesting...if i let my eyes unfocus i see a whole face under there...
