while I don't know much about painting your style may lend itself better to oil painting. have you ever tried oil painting?

Thanks! I'm going to finish it in charcoal, like so. (8 hours of work now)

I have not. I think I was too specific, I'm new to painting in general.

I think I'm going to try watercolor next, but with very different subject matter.

Sorry about the crappy quality, this is a cell phone photo.
it won't let me post the pic 'cause i'm too new i think, but i wanted to say i think the colors in that piece are lovely.

I'm in Drawing 1 right now. I have never drawn anything before, so it's ALL new to me. We've been working with charcoal for the last 2-3 classes, and today we had to copy a self portrait from some... guy as a class exercise. He has us do them upside down, so that we don't mess ourselves up. I thought that was a weird concept, but I definitely think it works.

I dig it man. Excellent use of light and shadow. I'm amazed to hear a designer say they've never drawn anything before, but you did a great job.

Thanks! And about the designer thing, well, I guess I technically have. But not in a fine arts kind of way. I've drawn boxes of content to get an idea of how I want to lay a website out, as well as some crude logo sketches, but have never sat down and drew something. I used to doodle in school too, but that was just to past the time. It was always just lines and shapes. I was always more into photography. Now I think I like both! I was immensely intimidated at first, but now I'm definitely more comfortable.

Never actually shared the completed product.

This is frankly, a bit crap, because I haven't taken the time to get a good copy of it in natural light. I feel like I ruined it somewhere along the line. I liked it better as lineart. Hm.
