    yeah tablet would be nice, but these have a look to them thats very unique and i think its because of the mouse. 1 and 3 mostly. second one is ok.

    update

    Mouse workMouse work

    Still working with PS 5.5

    Mouse workMouse work

    And PS 3


    Artists have always strugled with their materials. I see the effort to manipulate the uncooperative mouse as a metaphore for the stuggle to make good art. That is, art which has some true quality.
    One observation I do have is that the mouse robs you of the beautiful bezier curves that I am normaly so fond of. It just dosent want to let the line flow.

    Hiya Rob,

    You have some really nice stuff here. I like the way you have craeted shadows and highlights on your portraits. Great stuff Rob. BTW, I still use the mouse in all of my photoshop renderings.

    I absolutely love the colors of the very first one, especially how they work with the realistic eyes.

    That's an interesting approach, my art teacher used to say something similar about Van Gogh. But it might be more of a philosophical approach than a practical one (which is fine by me), because struggling with materials doesn't inherently translate to better or more genuine art imo.

    My Self-Portraits

    "Work for your self first. You can paint best the things you like or the things you hate. You cannot paint well when indifferent.
    Express a mental opinion about something you are sensitive to in life around you. There is a profound difference between sensitivity and sentimentality."

    I did a little similar experiment with trying to see if you remove any advantages of the tool and you are forced to concentrate on getting the image correct instead. It's not a self portrait but it was just an experiment in technique and was done in Photoshop CS using just your normal hard brush (as is very evident and with an old ball-based mouse (no optical fancy stuff here

    Was a pain but a very useful exercise i felt.
