That is FANTASTIC! Wow. The lines, the shading, the colour--it looks as though your head's popping right out of the paper. This inspires me to want to attempt a self-portrait. Wow. Just awe-inspiring. :D

I worked more on it during the first days after posting it, but I'm tired of it now. So I don't think I'll finish. Thanks though!

Yeah...That happens to me all the time...Right now I have a half-dozen pieces that are unfinished...Seems like I get side tracked alot with other ideas and the older ones lose their appeal.. Guess its all part of the process...=)

Amazing. I love the hair. We're supposed to do colored pencil drawings in out new IB art sketchbooks, and I find them sort of difficult.

Thanks! You can do it!! It gets easier after a while, so just do some extras before you start.

what does the picture it'self look like? the picture has been slightly distorted right?
your mouth is closed which is different- mabey not in drawings but since your mouth is normally open i guess that is different.
and it definitely looks older- i'm trying to figure out why......... all the features seem to be yours but there is something different, something odd like the triangles......... it's all in the cheekbones, cause your face is already triangular it accents it even more and tries to draw it out longer while keeping the face just as triangular.
i think- or rather hope- that's it.

Thank you!
Yeah, the original picture was taken at a slant, so I actually had it rotated to the right. (You can tell by how the hair falls)
I'll probably upload it that way next time.

Hahahha thanks. I don't look quite like that. Not better, not worse, but something's off. The eyes look wrong.

Too late though, since eraser doesn't work.

Wow, AMAZING! Was your hair actually red then or did you just draw it like that? I'm really impressed by your colored pencil skills. It looks just like you except maybe a tiny bit more boy-ish somehow. Anyways, wonderful!

Thyanks!!!!
Well, it was after I dyed it purple, so it really was kind of red then. I also added a contrast filter to the picture I was drawing from, so it was even MORE red. But it looks more orangey in the photgraph.
Also, I distorted it when I took a photo, so I DO look more boyish from what you can see. You'll see the girly original tomorrow though!

Wow, it looks really good. Seems to me that you're done. What do you still have to do to it?

mischmisch Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2006
Glad to see someone who doesn't believe in covering the entire paper with pencil! But no, it doesn't feel done to me yet. I've only started it 2 hours ago (or something like that. I'm not sure) and I'm still having fun. That would be like stealing candy from a cripple.

Still have to do the arm, and I was looking forward to the shirt. Also, the colors are wrong, especially on the face. I need to find a good brown, instead of these funny maroon colors.

Wow, amazing! How did you do that with colored pencils?!

Well, have you ever tried? You should before painting next year, right?
Also, it helps that my step-dad gave me a 120-prismacolor set.

Ooh, I'm not taking painting next year - just Drawing I first semester and, hopefully (if I get in) Photography I second semester. Are you taking Drawing I and then Painting?
Reply
:iconmischmisch:
mischmisch Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2006
OOOh yeah! I got confused. I remembered that you were going to be in one of my classes, and then I stopped thinking I guess. You meant Drawing II, not Drawing I, right? Yeah, I'm taking that again (Drawing II that is) and Painting first semester, and then Sculpture second semester.

indievisual Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2006  Student
Yeah, Drawing II i mean. Lol. How did you manage to do that? Do you have no study halls or something?
Reply
:iconmischmisch:
mischmisch Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2006
Hahahha no. Didn't this year either. Study halls are the most pointless waste of time I could ever imagine. Instead of sitting around, I can learn Spanish and draw.

Lol. I like the break, though. I'll read or do homework if I didn't want to do it the night before (which is everyday lol).

mischmisch Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2006
Aaaaahhh!!! Thank you so much! But ask anyone on the street and they'd be more impressed in charcoal skill.
Have you ever tried colored pencils though? (They can't be crappy.)
