    Y'know it's probably not a good idea posting your picture in this forum WCK.
    Now if I recognise you in the street, I will follow you to your place of residence and steal your minature barbeque.

    This makes me happy, I suppose that could count as 'gay'.

    I'm so horrible at likeness. I'm very, very sorry, Sharky T. I tried, but it is seriously lopsided and bad. Very fun to do though, I learned some interesting things.

    If it makes you feel any better, I used the Gimp's measure tool instead of my sighting stick (pencil) to get the_monarch's proportions down.

    it's not like i bloody traced

    What's wrong with eye dropping is that you dont learn as much as you can from the pic. But as you said, if you are just fooling around and its not really your intent to use it as a study, I'll try not to get all snobby on you. :P

    I need to work on this being-patient-and-posting-finished-drawings thing. Spending a bit more time on this one to make up for letting myself get 5 pages behind.

    On the topic of eye-dropping, a lot of concept artists eye-drop colour from photos. I think it's ok to 'cheat' (if it is cheating) a little if you are doing it professionally and have a close deadline. But if your goal is to study fine art, then theres not much to be learnt from eye-dropping.

    If you think that's bad, we had a dude come in from Rising Sun to give a talk on how they do concept art and backdrops/map-painting for the new Harry Potter movies. Guess what they do? They google image trees, water, smoke, fire etc, flip horizontal (erase the copyright logo:))and place it into the backgrounds. And they might 'sometimes' paint over them a little.

    Normally, I'd update the post rather than put a drawing up twice, but considering it's on a different page,

    sublimus.jpg

    Something about scanners, always make things look worse than you thought they were when you were drawing them. It's like instant fresh eyes, or something.

    EDIT: Size reduced because it was a little too "Woah, alright, there's Sublimus"

    EDIT: Edited again, this time to incorporate a little bit of the tonal contrast mentioned below, and very sadly, to negligible effect.
