The Forumer Portrait Thread (Back from the Dead!)

There's a lot more where this came from if you go to the dance with me...

Seriously, though; long story short, I figured I'd see if it'd be a viable idea to try and resurrect the old 'Draw a Forumer' thread, if only because I could use things to draw. We'll see if it works. Anyway, the rules as I remember them:
  • Try to draw a forumer before posting a picture to be drawn; the drawing's what the thread's about.
  • When possible, consider the ramifications of the quality of pictures you submit to be drawn--flash that flattens out the face, or really bad cellphone pictures aren't often easy or particularly interesting to render on paper.
  • On the flip side, if you've got pictures with interesting angles, or with a lot of personality, those are fun to try to capture (especially for those who opt for caricatures).
  • Don't worry about drawing masterpieces; aside from the fun aspect, this thread is about practicing, be it practicing facial proportions, rendering techniques, stylization, or whatever else you feel like experimenting with.
  • Any medium is welcome; if you're a clay kind of person, that'd be a pretty awesome portrait to see; likewise with CG, oil paint, construction paper, legos, or whatever you want to try.
Anyway, in the spirit of the thread, I've started off with a picture of beavotron from her website (and my sincerest apologies for that, beav; you really didn't deserve that), and, despite my better judgement, I submit my ugly mug:

Here's hoping this works!

    Been a while since we've had one of these. I'll give it a shot.

    EDIT: Dangit... I forgot I don't have a scanner any more. I can still submit a photo though.

    OK the rules are supposed to be do not enter a picture of yourself if you have not drawn someone else.

    Edit: I am also not seeing that, Cat.

    I think he was trying to imply he decided not to post whatever he attempted to draw.

    edit: also, that is awesome Chicoblue

    pre-emptive edit 2: I can decide. Do I draw shittily with my tablet that I never use or do I draw shittily on a tiny pad of paper and scan it in. Choices choices choices.

    Well since I end up looking like a moron in whatever picture I pose for, you guys got any suggestions?

    Also, to make it easier to catalogue the images, I took the liberty of setting up a photobucket group album. It can be found at http://photobucket.com/paacsaf. The passworld is: pennyarcade.

    EDIT: Quick portrait. A high resolution version is available in the photobucket album.

    Posted incomplete because I'm impatient, and need to take a (bad) hatching break for a bit.

    flay.jpg

    EDIT: Finished (at least as finished as I'm going to get it); I was originally going to draw the bird, but after the massive fuckup that was the neck (looks worse in the sketchbook), I didn't really have it in me to go on.

    Try putting your donger in a dishwasher and see how that comes out.

    Okay, attempting another one now (WIP). A bit better than the last. Next step: shading.

    I'm beginning to rush these, and it's definitely negatively affecting the quality of the drawings. Next one'll be more careful (sorry about the lips, Giga)

    Oh man. On my dad's monitor I couldn't see how ridiculously bright that last drawing I posted was. Oh well I'm on to shading now so I'll soon have a better one to show (although I don't have access to my dad's scanner anymore... :().

    EDIT: Also, stop putting yourself down so much crawdaddio, those are great!
