Self Portrait

Something i haven't done in YEARS is draw a self portrait. tonight i was feeling a little traditional, and a little bored, so voila! it was good practice :)

Really nice artwork Courtney. I never really had a chance to see much of your stuff back in the Gonq. Wonderful colouring too.

Hi Courtney! It's great to hear from you! Wow you've got some awesome pieces on this blog (nice digital paintings) I hope everything is going super well for you these days! I'm good (and pretty busy) down here in Toronto. :)

hi pav,
thanks very much for the nice comments :) i guess, for me, the best piece of advice i could give would be: try not to draw an eye or a nose, or hair etc. instead only draw exactly what you see and try not to think to much about making it look like "an eye". just draw the shapes and light and dark values that you see exactly as they are. and also, keep in mind negative spaces. hope that helps :)
