Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers at night... might find himself a werepug.

Quickie Portrait 8

A guy from the "Draw Me" thread on ConceptArt.

I went to the art store and bought a bunch of different filbert brushes on sale. Filbert! It's a great word. The filbert brush is flat and has an oval edge rather than being squared off or coming to a point. I've been playing with a filbert made of hog bristle and I think I really like it. Although I'm not sure I bought the best quality one as it has stray hairs sticking out and it's already lost two.

Quickie Portrait 6

This one had unusual lighting I wanted to try but I think I screwed up the tilted features. :P

Quickie Portrait 3

I used a slightly smaller brush for this one (3/8" rather than 1/2") and took a little longer and it seems to have turned out better.

Quickie Portrait 2

So I'm raiding Flickr, Google and dA for these which is not entirely kosher. But I'm pretty sure no one's going to recognize their photos unless I get a LOT better.

Quickie Portrait 1

So I screwed that last acrylic self-portrait up pretty badly, and I thought I might need some practice. A while back I stumbled on this guy who did little acrylic portraits in his sketchbook using a large brush and very limited palette. Once I tracked the thread down I got some ideas on the palette he was using and did a couple trial runs of my own.

I'm having a lot of trouble controlling the huge brush and getting used to the palette so I guess I'm lucky this turned out as well as it did (which isn't very). But these take only about half an hour to paint so I can easily do a couple a day and improve. I might pick up a brush more similar to the other guy's. I don't know. Can one get more control with filberts or flats?

International Self-Portrait Day

Screwed up the traditionally-painted version so had to re-do it digitally. :P

That was a lot of portrait painting. Gonna have to practice all winter so I can put in a better showing next year! Also, jogging.
