Meh. Because of tons of peer pressure I have chosen out of not so free will to make this thread. I will post slowly things I have made through the years and then shamefully hide under the covers as people laugh at them.

So without further ado here is the first picture that I have chosen to upload:

Ya, a pretty bad self portrait of myself. But hey, you guys sorta know what I look like now, sorta...in a badly drawn way.

Do you do digital drawings Oo

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?

You are a good artist man. I really like the Kingdom Hearts drawing of Meta Knight and Darth Vader. This has a lot of potential indeed.

Says he's leaving... comes back later and then brings back an old art thread of his.

So your sister is in IU, huh? That'd be a nice college to go to.

Right. Got confused. I thought your first drawing was of Kingdom Hearts seeing as you keep talking about it. Well I still like it, Kingdom Hearts or no.

Let's see what happens if I just place this image. It think it is really too big but whatever.

Link so when the image is really large you can just click this and be all happy. I should really scale down these pictures because the resolution is so high but I am lazy, so ya.

I do art for my art classes. Don't know how much I will be doing now that I am in college. Depends on if I get any good ideas and how much free time I have.

Aye what this existed what.

I didn't know you could draw.
Well you probably told me one time but then I forgot but whatever.

yeah dude you're pretty great. I suck at the art thing, but I do know that if you practice a lot and then try to analyze it and such, see what you did wrong and how to make it better and etc etc. You'd improve~

Bronze and Cen bullied me into making it.

Never told you as far as I can remember. I can draw but I don't draw. All my drawings are from by freshman year when I took drawing. Everything after that is all digital art, usually where I did not draw anything but pieced pictures together to make something cool, like the Pokemon case.
