Count me in!

I like: Lately I have been very fascinated with native american stories and pictographs. I especially like the ones about coyote,
I think he makes for an awesome totem. Other than that I like birds, the locomotion of flying is just crazy.
Oh and the classics of course: Dinosaurs, robots, retro computer games and: great color selections!

First off, great work sofar. Now when you beefed up the contrast you did it for all planes. The classy way would be to reduce contrast the further away the object is. Sprites (character, enemy, objects) would be the ones with the most contrast and strongest colours to easily recognize them. I know, that is no fantastic wisdom, just thought I drop it in here since I didn't see it mentioned yet. Anyway, looking forward to your further progress on this!

Looks about right now, the perspective. I rather liked the warped perspective tho, had a more dynamic look. You almost had a fisheye thingie going on there, well partly anyway.
If you'd change the other parts it would add quite a lot of character to the image i'd say. Anyway, good job sofar I like the overexposed coloring too.

Hey I'm a bit in a hurry so I can't go much into detail - anyway:
I wouldn't start dithering so early. Throw in a few shades and play with the palette. I wouldn't stick to a palette before you have done a lot more shading'n stuff on the portrait - I'd rather develop it with the picture. Although you can already decide in what direction you want to go colour-wise. Well but that's a matter of personal preference. You certainly don't have to stick to the colours of the photo. Well that may sound a bit weird but I'd decide what characteristic of yours you want to emphazise and bring out with the portrait. Then choose your colours accordingly.
Ok gotta go - good luck!

@faceless: So true. That jacket gave me much trouble - you mean the right side right? cool thank's for the eye hint you're right about that.
@alkaline: Hmm I can't give you an exact reference for this - I used a mirror and made some quick sketches first and then went strait to the pixel-pushing (still with a mirror in front of me - cool eh mixing old and new techniques?  :P )

(quick and dirty sketches - just to get into the mood really)
I can show a photo of me of course but I have cut my hairs since then

I don't think this is of much use though - the webcam warped my face (I may have a long face but not that long) and I didn't get the exact same "stance" here - I just woke up ok :)
I will continue to work on this promised - after all I at least want to do the bg(that's why I didn't texture the hair yet - I want to use these for reflections from lights from the bg) but it could take me some time.
EDIT: eh to faceless again: Oh you wrote "the left side". That's right it is completely off, but that's on purpose. I wanted to create more "weight" for the eye there hence texturing gone wild. But yeah I might do it with some fitting folds or something.
thx again everybody

Whoops I thought I had already posted that one here...

I will do an animated bg someday soon(hopefully) - this will be for my next web-portfolio(an element of the website itself) stuff.
Colours aren't optimized I know that and that I aa'ed the hair when I'm planning to do a bg istn't very clever yea :)

General Discussion / Re: Learning the Language

well I like ruby very much - it is a sweet and elegant language to code in. Yes, it is a scripting language but you can still do a lot with it. Python is great too - for a quite a lot of things. To speed things up there are always modules written in C for various tasks. C# is quite nice but after coding in Ruby or python the "C++" style languages do all look unnecessarily long winded.
If you're more the visual guy and want some quick results in that area I'd suggest going ahead with actionscript/flash - it's fun and quickly rewarding.

I know that you can't change your avatar right now (right?) but why oh why do I have that photo for an avatar? I never changed that...
EDIT: Now that I think of it, that might be my fault after all. I don't use the webspace anymore that I used a few months ago - I think that's were my avvi had been. Though it would still be odd to have an image with the same url and name as the avatar... well well.

These are all highly "wippish" - I think it makes more sense to get feedback before you're at this "nahh, I will not change it anyway"-point.

I'll try to update this place here soon. If you think there's nothing here to crit yet, that's fine but I crave for c+Cs :)
