    Just some things I've drawn and painted. Comments and especially constructive criticism are welcome.

    Here's the first, and one of my favorites. 580842_4775510388485_741977793_n.jpg

    Looks pretty nifty, has a neat surreal vibe to it. I feel like this would make a great AI representation from some 80s or 90s cyberpunk story. Faces seem to be a common theme with them...

    Well, thanks Yuan! I think that warrants another surreal face picture, yes?

    The best kind of faces! Something seems to be wrong with the attachment though.

    Whoa sick, kind of reminds me of Benjamin Franklin though but I could just be crazy.

    I love how you're using different mediums, El. Is that second one drawn with charcoal or something like that? :)

    Yes ma'am! It's infinitely better than graphite, I don't know why anyone would use it. Watercolor will always be my favorite, though. :3

    Lolololol, Eph is a manest man. He is awfully polite though so maybe that would be confusing?

    But yeah great faces, you should do like a face collection or something.

    Nice!
    The eyes in the second one remind me of an infant. I can't rightly say why, they just do. :)

    Hmm. I used the same technique with the eyes in that portrait that I came up with in this picture of my nephew, so that would actually make sense! This one is incomplete. I gave it to my sister as a gift and had to finish it on the roadtrip there. :/

    PS - Sorry, Eph. I've actually done that to several people on TFF. I'm not a good judge of genders online. Hahaha.

    Thinking about it, I think it might be the size of the eyes relative to the face and they appear to be more rounded than those of an adult...?

    Fantastic pics! I love the one of the tree. I don't think I've ever seen one taken from that perspective before. :)

    Hey, no problem, El! I'm a poor judge of online genders too. :D

    Seriously, your art is really very good. You use more different mediums than I do, so that impresses me a great deal. :)

    I looked at the first, it's an interesting pic. Somehow, it reminds me of one of those face sun pictures, with the way the feathers are arranged around the face. the shading looks good, though the eyelashes are unusually thick. Is it watercolor? I'm no good at watercolor at ALL myself lol.

    Oh that's one badass painting you've made there!
    Painting, photo, drawing... Is there something you can't impress us with? :)
