    I recognized him right away, not bad. You should try drawing the individual hairs of the eyebrows, once you get the technique down it's very easy and looks well-refined, compared to a thick black line. I think the ear's a little too low, or maybe the eyes are a little too high.

    Why did you only draw like five frames and then cycle them? It looks really stiff.
    Because I wasn't giving half a shit.

    Here's the next illustration i'm working on. It's part of a series of water-colours.
    only the very basic inking is done right now.
    and as you can see on my totally clean work desk i'm about to start the water-colour process.



    clicking the image goes to my tumblr blog where I post finished works and works in progress. Cause i'm narcissistic and self centered like that.

    Now for some history, the masks you're looking at, the one's I've illustrated are different types of masks from Tibet and influenced by Tibetan styles of art as well as from Nepal and the combined influence of both Buddhist and animistic styles of religion.

    This is my first drawing that involves some serious shading, so I'd like some C&C especially on my shading, any other notes would be appreciated:

    I painted a friend using photoshop, took about 2 and a half hours:

    Click for HD:
    It's very flat. You need to bump the values up more (much darker shadows) and use more colour in your shading and highlighting.

    How did you sketch the preliminary lineart or work out the proportions/anatomy? For portraits like this you should really be using a grid set up to get it perfect.

    Reference pic?

    Did some quick eye studies to go with that old digital painting I did and make it look in my portfolio like I work from pencil and then develop things further digitally or something:

    I think the iris on the middle one is a bit too small. Usually the iris will touch the bottom eyelid, or at least be very close to it.

    Time to drop some dumpage



    Some face, drawn on a random piece of card I found.



    A fox I drew, looks like a Kit Fox. Scanned over a once-crumpled bit of chinese newspaper, came out green for some reason. I'm happy with this.



    Just doodling on a newspaper and this turned into something. It's a guy with piercings and tattoos drawn over a picture of Alastair Campbell. I like it.

    Moar sketching.

    Warning, large images.

    First, the finished version of the WIP I posted in the v5 thread. DPRK Propaganda.
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7344169/DPRK%20Propaganda.JPG
    Second, a portrait I did of my friend. She was always doing ones of others and wanted one finally done for her. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. Just view it in a new tab so you can see the whole thing at once.

    I know you didn't ask for c&c, but I reccomend some more in depth study into facial proportions if you plan to do more of that kind of thing because yours are a bit off. And you definitely need to make better use of values.

    I do have a high contrast version, just that the font will be an even harder ask to design.

    Fixed the faucet, added some irises, made the paste a bit smoother, fixed the inner mouth. I'm really hoping to be done with his by the end of the week.

    His eyes are incredibly small.
    I fixed him after hours of hard work. I personally think it's an improvement. Thoughts?

    Nice materials, but it's wonky and the base is not textured well.
