Self portrait Final

So, I finished the self portrait, and I was completely stoked on how it came out. I bought some Matte finish prismacolor fixative and sprayed it with a light coat to help protect the drawing. I left it outside to dry in the garage, and when I came back the image had a white, waxy film on it that totally destroyed all the value. I was SOOOOO bummed. Especially on the shirt area, because that was where the film seemed to do the most damage.
Ive never had fixative leave a film like this before, so Im not sure if maybe it was the brand (Which I had never used before).
If you look good you can see where I was scratching off the film.
Oh well, just means I should start something new!!!!

Self Portrait update II

Heres the latest update on the self portrait. I need to finish the shirt area and the hair, and Ill probably do a little bit of noodling in the face area just to tighten things up a bit more, and maybe push back the shadow side of the face a bit more. Once I do all that Ill be done.

If you are looking at this I would love folks to leave comments.
Thank you much!

Also I promise the final scan will be adjusted very nice to more accurately portray the values, this came out a little dark once posted.

Demon Thingy

Hey Everyone,
Posting a recent creature sketch I worked on. Roughly a couple of hours of work. Maybe Ill finish it some day. Been busy with freelance, just finished up a couple of projects and Im currently working on a game for Iphone. Also working a oil painting which is going to be auctioned off a kaelepulu school (where my niece attends) to help buy supplies and pay teachers and what have you.

Ill post that soon as well.

Self portrait progress

Well this is a slow developing drawing. Ive been busy as hell getting stuff done for my freelance work that my personal stuff took a back seat. Anyway I have been working on this again the last week. Ive usually put a couple hours in every night the last week. Still got a ways to go as the whole Carl Dobsky "Filling in the dots" theory takes a while.
Ill put another update soon as I continue to noodle away at this thing.
Aloha for now
