Well, it's quite good I think. Light and coulours are nice, but I think there are still some anatomical distortions here and there, the eyes and mouth look to be facing us, but the nose and the shape of the face seem to be a little from the side. The neck is a bit long too I think, but maybe yours is long :p

OH DEAR GOD WHAT

looks awesome. Pore brush kicks arse. The face is a little too narrow but it does look like you.

Sweet Olly I'm impressed! Like the lighting and textures. How did you get the textures on the brushes/skin?

Hey! You did quite well, although i can see some parts that need work, but this is good for a first. Keep it up!

Well, I'm not sure what you look like, but I will try to say which i think needs work. ;)

Your left eye looks great, although the right one isn't so good, it isn't as centered and as straight as the other eye. The hair is great, so is the nose, I like the nose a lot. Becuase you have painted the light so well. But the main problem I see is the neck, the colours are not quite right and I think it should be a tad shorter.

But, VERY awesome piece here, I really like it.

Really nice. Glad to hear you had fun. I personaly think it's harder to draw portraits digital. So good job!
There is one thing that bothers me though. It looks like you don't have any collarbones. And your neck is also missing some important muscle masses. It is important to pay attention to the neck and shoulders when drawing a portrait because it adds more impact.
Keep up the good work! :)

Thanks! Yeah i didn't focus on the neck too much and the shoulders were just blocked in so it wasnt floating, although im sure my collar bones are below the visible neck on here, im quite thin so they are very defined and were covered by my tshirt haha.

I think it looks like you according to the picture from your icon and your website lol.

In the painting your face looks more narrow then what it is that I've seen. The eyes and nose rock. Great stuff!

I like the colors and lighting. I don't really know your face, so I can't comment on the shapes, but they seem a bit off. This is way awesome though.

The eyes, nose, and mouth look great in isolation, but they all seem to be at slightly different angles.

They're hard aren't they? ;) Well I can at least finally see what you look like, then again I've only drawn myself so many times and half of them don't even look like me (none are in my gallery so don't bother trying to find e'm) This I thought was traditional art at first :O

Haha yeah, i find traditional portraits so much easier but self portraits are always hard; i guess because you're so familiar with your own face it always look wrong :D Had fun working on it though!
