    extreme self-portrait

    self-portrait, 2 hrs in ArtRage... I think I`ll edit it a bit so I can add some flow to increase the movement impression(the skater,me, is moving backwards...from the upper right corner to the lower left)
    I called it extreme because it`s about an extreme sport, rollerblading. I also notice that the upper part of the legs are kinda long, and maybe the right hand is weird (shorter than the left)

    c&c appreciated

    It's really good. I like it a lot. Even more amazing is that it only took two hours. Keep that up. That is extreme!

    Very good. Regarding the legs, I think the extension of the right leg-line into the buttocks, and the fact that part of the lower portion of the leg is "hidden" by the placement beyond the bar is what makes the leg parts look disproportionate to you. I can see it since you pointed it out, but it is not bad. Perhaps defining the buttocks a little and adding a highlight to the lower right leg - showing it's continuance to the other side - would help.

    UPDATE: I played around with it a little. Adding just the slightest hint of a pocket or curve to the buttocks shortens up the upper leg nicely. Adding a highlight on the back, left side of the right leg also helps extend it. I also added a highlight line along upper portion of the skate. I'm not a great painter, so don't pick on the technique too much! I will remove the picture at your request.

    Again, very nice.

    Very well done and great sense of movement! I like everything about this one!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    I have found that if you are the painter, you see things that nobody else sees. That is a fine painting and needs no touching up in my opinion....Very nice...

    cutepoison,
    What an action packed self portrait. You have a wonderful artistic
    style and talent and have expressed the sport of skateboarding very
    well.
