self-sketch #7 by jaquieang self-sketch #7 by jaquieang
I finished it! i don't know how i feel about the background. i tried to make a "bokeh" effect using coloured pencils. yep, i had a hard time. but whatever, at least it's not plain white now! hahaha!

I really like what you've done with this portrait! I've found that self portraits are harder to do than other portraits!!
I really love the bokeh background, you've really pulled it off flawlessly!
I think one thing that you could possibly work on is anatomy overall. I think you've done a lovely job with the face (maybe just a little bit more work on the nose), but the arms look a tad bit too skinny, especially in the armpit area.

First if this is you you must be beautiful hehe. Second I do like the background and it looks like your worked a lot on it (and in the self portrait as well.) I prefer drawings with backgrounds and in my opinion this one works good. Maybe a little work on some details (like the nose maybe) and it would be perfect. I think you handle very well the hair style and the eyes as well. Very good job

Eh, this seems like a nice sketch :B You sure it's not finished?
And you seem to have a nice grasp or anatomy :la: Nose's kinda funky, me thinks.
Nice use of colour pencils >_>

thank you. yeah,  noticed the nose too. I'm bothered about it, but well, I'm also bothered how I'm extra tan here. I'm not that dark lol. maybe I'm gonna draw myself again instead of finishing this one. :(

well.. always measure everything in proportion to everything else.. so right now the nose looks like it's very skewed to the right which I assume is not really the case so.. The main thing is to compare everything! :)
