A New Profile Pic.

I know what you're thinking and it's true..... I am that handsome! Yes, yes, it's hard to believe but alas, I have had to bear the brunt of this curse for years. But please..."Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!", just love me for who I am. Anyways.....I had some time last night to try a self portrait so here it is. It's actually the first time I drew straight into Painter as opposed to drawing on paper and scanning it first. It was different drawing right on the Wacom but not bad. Don't get me wrong. I'm not about to throw away my sketch books, but I could get used to this real fast. Control Z is still a close friend of mine but in the long run it's a whole lot cheaper than erasers. Opinions people?

I think this is wonderful!
My favorite is still Sarge, but realism in this one is quite good. Keep up the good work!If I had a blog I would link you. I don't know what everyone else's problem is!

Nice one! It looks like a specific likeness, with some solid features. And yeah, undo is my friend too (to the point where I have it mapped to the front button of my stylus!) I use it more for drawing than I do painting though. Sometimes making a mistake is actually nice in painting, because the act of fixing it can make it look interesting (morgan weistling said that, and I agree). With drawing...a mistake is a mistake :)

nice new avatar! I actually am tryin to force myself to do more digital sketchin just to get used to it. I actually am starting to like it alot. I use alias sketchbook mainly. Painter is fantastic but I cant color for shiz.

Goin back to pencil is always nice for me. But have a lot more appreciation for direct to digital.

Keep em comin!

Thanks for the comment in my blog.. to be honest with you, that punished guy is the fist job that I do just with my tablet too.. and yes, ctrl z is very very useful, but just to keep painting over your mistakes is funny too.. I really like your character designs.. congratulations.. you have a good job here..
