I've been ment to ask what do you think of using webcams view as a "mirror" example when doing digital?

I thought the link below might answer the mirror question. Its a pretty strong endorsment for using a mirror.

I kind of like this one. Eyes are quite realistic but my nose gives me headache

Well, haven't done this for a while. Over a month now. This turned out ok

Number ten! Better once a month than never :/

I guess I worked this more than hour but don't really know, cos I'm not very good watching clock while I'm working. Not a good photo but it gives the picture. This is not even near perfection but I'm getting there slowly.

Great stuff here, Windsrock, I can definitely see the progress you're making. Keep it up!

Wow I don't know what happened but last month just disappeared and I realised that I haven't done anything. Just lots of packing and unpacking.
I did another pic from a photo, but I promise to do the next ones with mirror

some great progress here, I love the 2nd to last one (in red) it has really good form and energy (though id lift the right eye a tad as its running away slightly) The towel head one is good too, it reminds me of girl with a pearl earring. Would also like to see some more pencil and biro sketches too as they have come along nicely
May 20th, 2010, 04:19 AM
Thank you Fiori You are absolutely correct, the shadow side has some twist in it. And the girl with a pearl earring assosiation was a bit intentional Biro was a new word for me. That one sketch is done with a thin marker, not a ball-point-pen. If that's what you ment.
From now on I'm trying to do one self portrait in a week. Every wednesday
May 30th, 2010, 02:54 PM
Love that one in post no. 21.
April 21st, 2011, 03:51 PM
Well then, works blowed my good intentions last year and it's been hard to get back on to this subject. But here's one.
June 1st, 2012, 10:52 AM
Well, once again I wanted to try my skills with self portrait. Seems a good place to start to draw after a little pause. Like it or not here it is

Happy November 1st
