nah, apparently theres something wrong with the portal. I saw that self-portrait in the portal earlier though and it looks really good. Despite the textures it doesnt look flat at all (textures tend to do that)

Ah, okay. It kind of sucks since I wanted to show this one off, but what can you do. Anyway, thanks! I'm glad you liked it. The 'flattening' effect textures can have has its own charm though, methinks.

If I fully understand what a tote bag looks like, I'm happy to report I've never been the owner of one.

Looks more like a messenger bag than a tote bag.

I like the picture a lot. You look like Butch from The Little Rascals.

Agh, finally! My drawing's back up in the art portal.
So, uh, again, unnecessary linkity.

Also, thingamabob I made for the Notepad Drawing Collab.

AVAT robot entry!
My earlier idea was something completely different, and I wanted to try a more realistic looking approach. I just had the linework done when I realised that 1) it would take up an enormous amount of time to colour all that in with my lack of knowledge and 2) there were artists way better at realistic digital drawing than I am, so I thought I'd stick to my comic-y style and start all over.

It was only after it was finished that I saw it has quite the resemblance to The Iron Giant.. But I guess any kid with a gigantic robot will have that.

That looks extremely nice. I love the overall feel it makes me think of Iron Giant. Great work, can't wait to see more.

I like your art, it's so fun and seems pretty emotive I think.

Thanks guys.

Since I've been a bit lazy the past couple of days (weeks?) I thought I'd update with a sketch that was my first idea for the first round of AVAT. It only has half the linework done, but you could see it as a probably forever unfinished WIP.

Thanks! I think there are a lot of things I should finish. I just really don't know what to do with that one since I kind of suck at drawing landscapes.

Yup, still do. Meh, it's vacation, sometimes there are things to do besides posting on NG. And I don't know :D It'd feel a bit lame to just post a photograph of my face on here. Maybe if I find something fun to draw on a photo of me.

Heh, I feel a little stupid for actually doing this.
I don't know what's up with the hat, I had no inspiration I guess.
Well, at least people can compare my self-portraits to a (...semi-)real picture of me, if they want to.

You know, I was expecting to see a total tomboy judging from the self-portraits, but you're actually pretty cute! :o
Pleasant surprise get.
You sure you weren't actually wearing those clothes? They look so.... natural.

Pfrt, it's probably the lace and plumage.
And drawing clothes over a photo is actually pretty easy. Come to think of it, it would be a good exercise for people who have trouble with drawing clothing.

Seeing an actual picture of you.... you really do capture yourself well in your self-portraits.

I didn't know my lines were that clean? Well, mostly I tend to start with a rather large scanned drawing (scanning wood sure was something else) that I resize in the end, and even then I zoom in to like 300% for the tiny lines and details. And of course Wacoms help.

Oh, almost forgot this one. Entry for Chow #46 'The Alchemist'. I thought I'd do a rather strange interpretation of that concept and ended up with an ugly female drugdealer. Or something.
To be honest I thought the thing was a bit crap, but looking at the votes, people seem to like it.
