Hullo! Going to school, have to paint a self-portrait in acrylic to get a handle on skin tones and seeing colour in the shadows/highlights, you know the drill.

I have a tendency to yammer on about everything before you have time to get a word in sideways. All I'm going to say is that I've barely started the hair. Anything else, I could use the pointers :D

More Facebook Graffiti!

These are awesome! My favourite is probably the third one (even though I haven't seen the movie, I know the scene and you recreated it well).

I have a tendency to yammer on about everything before you have time to get a word in sideways. All I'm going to say is that I've barely started the hair. Anything else, I could use the pointers :D

It's looking good so far. I'm pretty hopeless when it comes to paints, but after flipping back and forth between between the painting and the photo for a bit, here's what I came up with (not including any comments about the unfinished hair):

Hope that helps somewhat.

Turns out we don't need to worry about the hair!

Tried to take your pointers into play, Chris, and I'm damn glad you made 'em, because when I finished up (or thought I had) I took another quick look at what you'd said... and lo and behold, I still had no ear :D



Mmm less colour butchery. The old one can still be found three posts above, if you care to compare!

How long can the floor creak before it loses its voice?

(upped contrast in PS for better readability.)

i would like some critique please, as anatomy seems to be the area all my art fails in....

is this a nine-headed figure?  humans are idealized at eight heads and even that is taller than your average (typical is to be "seven to the ankles").  Even beyond that the most i've seen outside of fashion is "eight to the ankles" which is certain greek/roman gods like mars...

here's my sketch of the eight-head but i must be out of it because it doesn't look right to me :

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

yeah that first one was my initial sketch, and yeah he's a bit tall.

the second is a more concetrated study on muscles.

your rough sketch is pretty good, i think i should use more ref points.

thanks

size heavy animation. You're showing great progress from one to the other I think. Stick with the anatomy sketches.
