Hi, my name is J-qb.
That's right, I'm hosting a self-portrait collab. Submit your self-portraits to this thread.

RULES
+ Deadline: August 29th
+ Art has to be 400px wide by 500px tall,
+ Please submit a .png to the dump or art portal

+ A self-portrait is a piece of art that represents it's maker.
+ For the sake of this collab im gonna apply this definition quite leniently:
- Abstrahised paintings are just as acceptable as realistic or cartoonish ones
- Portraits of your online persona and stuff are acceptable.
+ Please don't sign your work, in the final collab your name will be shown alongside your work.

NOW GET DRAWING:

Good question; you can do full body as well as only face or anything in between, or even faceless (nsfw link).

Cool, I love the way you tend to draw faces so it'd be awesome to see what you come up with

I'm sorry but that's not in. Too simple and generic.

This might be a bit too simple but I gave it a go. I'd be willing to revise it if needed.

I have a retardedly large amount of self portraits... There's one in my art portal submissions at the moment, but it doesn't look right in the dimensions for this collab. I'll see if I can rescale some others.

I'd love to have some traditional art in this, just scan it or take a picture and resize it on your computer.

also is this a portrait from photo or from real life using mirror ?

It's from two photo's actually. I find it much easier to use a photo rather than a mirror cause you don't have to hold still.

In, you really are allowed to post as many as you like (well, unless you really start going crazy), especially if they are so different from each other like yours are.

I'm sorry dude, this is not in. I'm not saying you traced it, but I get that vibe of it like you didn;t really understand what you were drawing (why/where the darks and lights go). Considering this was one of your first times drawing in flash you really didnt do a terrible job, just keep practicing k? and try again some weeks from now when you have improved, or in another medium that you are more familiar with?

Wrapping it up: great stuff from everyone guys, glad everyone is excited about this!

Do the portraits have to be made for the collab specifically, or can they be older submissions?
I ask because several people are submitting pieces from months ago.

Yea im wondering that myself. I think it kinda defeats the point if youre just gonna not bother drawing and just look for an old drawing you did months/years ago.

Can there be words in it? Not necessarily your name, but any type of word?
