Self Portrait - WIP by armyangel Self Portrait - WIP by armyangel
[Work in Progress] Full view please.

This is what I'm working on in my painting class. I took this this morning, I changed a lot with it. Its kinda crooked because my painting is held up at an angle on the easel. Done in oils, been working on it in school for about a month and a half or more. Almost done! >_< urk.

That's awesome.

You're making me want to use oils...

This looks really good. Great job. Can't wait to see what the final version will look like.

You should. Oils are by far better than any digital or traditionl medium. I should upload the final one, hehe. I'm lazy.

Well, stop being lazy then lol just kidding (yeah right, look who's talking hehe. I'm the king of being lazy when it comes to uploading). In my opinion though, I feel that just about every real media is better than digital, because you can get more out of it...I think digital media is just easier to use though, 'cause you can undo, and you have more control with the eraser. That's just me though.

As for oils, I'm gonna look into it. It's something I've never done before, and I barely use real paint as it is...It'll be interesting.

To tell the truth, I've never seen any of your work in oil.

Seems to work just fine with your style. It's also quiet refreshing to see a 'sinister' unicorn. Maybe you didn't intend the creature to look sinister, but that's what I see.

Anyhow, can't wait for the whole piece.

Sinister hmm. never heard that one before.

Yeah, after using oils, it feels like my digital art is just stupid sketches. Thanks a lot :)

Comparing oils and digital art is silly, the styles are too different in their approaches. ... I like them both, one way or the other.

I did try out, I took art first cycle freshman year and that's it...I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but I used to cut:-( That's why I got kicked out.
