I've been trying to do one a night before I hit the sack, unless something comes up. I got access to a digital camera for a while, so I can start posting them up. Unfortunately the camera sux; if I use the flash the pic comes out grey, if I use my lamp for light it comes out brown. If anyone has any tips on how to fix this, I'd be in thier debt.
Anyway, heres tonights
Crits are greatly appreciated!
These look good. You and I have the same quirk, though. I take it you're right handed. I say that because if you flip these horizontal (or check the natural media one in a mirror), they are going to jump out at you as being skewed to the right. I actually recoiled a bit when I did that a few nights ago. When I noodled with it and reversed it back, I renoodled so that it was skewed again. Maybe my face just leans. I think I'm going to lay out the "corners" of my head first, then a couple key points of measurement, then draw it out and see if I can keep it from leaning over.
Here's something I've been meaning to do: draw a SP in the mirror (my usual way), then do one in a similar pose from a photo. Since they are different, they should turn out as mirrors of each other (or close).
Thanks for the feedback Dogfood. I think one of the reasons my SP's often get skewed is looking back and forth between the paper and the mirror. Can't get in exactly the same position each time. I so I borrowed a digital camera so I could work off a photo. Here's the result:
