A self Portrait from 2009. My second try at portraiture.
Very good my friend. I like to get the pencil out every now and again. Will try and dig some out.
Found some....(not of me thankfully) pet portraits incl a Brachypelma emelia lol.

Very nice! I LOVE the brachy! What medium do you use primarily? I've been drawing and painting dark stuff from my imagination for the past few years, but many people have told me to go back to my roots. As a kid I would obsessively sketch every type of insect or Arachnid that I could find. My freshly molted G. pulchripes would make a great oil pastel drawing.
ugghhh! lol I currently have a huge black and white Maine Coon Cat Noisily yelling/meowing up at me, wanting his soft food. He was my alarm clock today!
I guess this could be another self portrait.
It was done in Oil, Acrylic, charcoal, and sharpie.
Thank you and I am really jealous of people who can draw from their head. ....I can only work from stills
I mainly use coloured pastel pencils or just normal pencils. Not done any for years now as just can't seem to find the time anymore. Really miss not drawing though as very therapeutic.
Very impressive. You have skills.....not sure I would like to be in your head for too long though. ...ha ha
@Phil are those your dogs? Fantastic man. Always wanted a Sharpei.
The Rough Collie was. The other 2 were commissions from fiends/family of their dogs
My name is Inigo Montoya!!!!!!! You killed my father!...............oh waiit. Jesus? LOL
Lol....it's just a different angle....a different light setting....and barely any makeup....lol. I hope it doesn't run anyone off, lol...
I was thinkin that was your daughter at first
Lol....thank you. Come on now, I'm not that old, lmao.
actually that was a compliment for the opposite but since i had to explain it i guess i was too subtle lol
Oh I got your compliment and understood very well what you meant, lol. I was being sarcastic.
i should take more time to read these posts i guess they canned my co-worker 2 weeks ago, i'm still trying to catch up from that. Doesn't leave much time for forum browsing. Figure another week and everything they slacked off on will be settled and back on track, then i'll be the dirty almost-old man lurker again
