my paintings make me want to claw my eyes out when I look at them.

No doubt, these are terrible, I have no idea what the hell you were thinking posting them.

Kidding. You did some fine work, although Darth Vader's head and what ever it is that seems to be flying off of his upper back seem a little finicky. The Meta-Knight came out great. As for the second piece, the US looks very strange, even knowing the effect you were going for. The CV-22 looks great, although your rotors on the left side are a bit crooked.

You don't need a sign-up sheet, you just have to come to at least two annual meetings where we sit down and complain about our artistic abilities.

I want to see some of your new art. The things that makes you want to claw your eyes out over, because my general observation is that the more you hate a piece of art, the more the viewers will enjoy it.

Who needs self-esteem anyway? Feeling good about yourself just gets in the way of creating angst filled art.

Exactly. Though, considering I used most of my teenage years doing that, it would be nice moving out of that range.
And it doesn't seem like Daleks is running around, mingling with the emo angsters, so it might not be that necessary for him.

It is a great way for going "I love drawing, ef you, self esteem, I want to do this!" every once in a while, though. Makes you do a bit better on everything (but often those will be the pieces you don't want critiques on, because it will screw with your feeling of accomplishment and pride).

Who ever said that it was new? This is all old. I just do stuff on the computer now.

Ya, I am just that nerdy kid with a little talent.

Usually it isn't really me drawing, more of just putting pictures together and Photoshopping them to awesomeness.

So, the shading is good.
Eyes and glasses on the left side are a little bit off and out of proportion.
The hand looks a little bit weird, but meh.
Nose and mouth are drawn rather well.
Overall; it's pretty good.

Post more, keep it up.

pretty bad

I think it is might be at least 120 percent better than anything I can manage, so it can't be that bad. It's just unpracticed. self portraits are generally hard to do, compared to, well, anything, because one thing is sitting there staring at someone else, while drawing them, or thinking up imaginary figures or something, another is staring at yourself, observing your own movements and imperfections and shadows and highlight and, well, everything.
Because you are drawing yourself, and you will get really conscious about it being you, when you are drawing. Also, your subject will be an idiot and keep moving.

So, yeah, critique above seems accurate.

It looks good overall, Horror already pointed out that bit about the eyes, also the hair on the right side is stopping about two inches above the ear. Or rather the ear is stopping before the ear, unless you were trying to do something with perspective?
