Here's just another face. I was just sketching with painter this morning and got this done before I got really sick. I haven't been able to get much else done today. I will try and have more to post tommorow. Assuming I can get less bed-ridden. And no, it's not me. Too much hair on top and not enough on the chin.

Here's a still from one of the scenes I've been working on. I have a few scenes from my "Eddie the Worm" project that I have been working on. They are mixed in with a bunch of my portfolio pieces in a video I have set up for my video game portfolio.

I have been noticing recently that most artists have a fun caricature of themselves. I thought I would work on one of me. For some reason I can't seem to get it right. Maybe because I don't see my self enough to do it. Or else it's because I see myself to much. I can most of the time nail other people when I draw them. (I am still improving). But I have a really hard time when trying to draw myself. Maybe the problem is that my darn model won't sit still well enough for me to draw. I had the same problem with my model when I was painting self portraits in college. Anyways, The bartender looking fellow was a drawing I did (with myself as the model) while I was working on a theme park design for my portfolio. It was a fairly good likeness of me. The other two are also different attempts recently at small caricatures. (I usually don't look as old and haggard as I appear in the top sketch. But some days I sure feel that way.)I have a lot of pages filled with these. I am just trying to create a character of myself to use in small comics. I have been inspired by some that I have seen other artists do. I would like some feedback on my problem of being able to draw myself though. (Maybe if I shave the beard it would be easier?) Has anyone else run into this problem when they do self portraits or caricatures? Thoughts or ideas will be appreciated.
Like I said before, when I am sitting around and can't think of what to draw I start drawing girl faces. I was at a meeting with my scouts last week and I was having them design their patrol flag. I was waiting for them to finish drawing their gruesome black widow spiders attacking things so I could complement them on the blood but kindly ask them to do something a little more conservative and appropriate to a Scout patrol. I guess it's the age or just a guy thing but I remember wanting my patrol flag to be filled with blood and guts too. Either that or things burning. Thankfully I grew out of the masocistic and arson phase of life. Anyways, as I was waiting I started sketching and this face was one I liked so I thought I would stick it in.
