You know, I was once in that point in my life where I had to paste images on top of each other... like some yearbook collage.

It took me years to find out about this little program called Collage Maker http://www.galleriasoftware.com/downloads.htm. It works wonders, Photoshop is a hassle, I wouldn't put myself through it. Try the program, you might like it.

Oh your work, it's nicely done. :) I remember doing worse.

Oh...and the rules also do ask that you don't post your sig twice in one thread...made worse by the fact it's too big. Please do deal with it...it's not hard.

Hey, it's cool...I'm just pointing out the rules...no need for overkill on my part..."most" people (yourself included) are reasonable enough to obey the rules if asked to :).

It's preety good, a work of genious (all 4 of them). I especially like the collage, makes it look "home made". Keep it up!

It isn't VERY difficult. Try to play something with the "layers". If you know how that works you are almost there (2: try to play with the "magic wand")

I'm sorry, but I think your drawings have gotten progressively worse every time....maybe you should quite while you're ahead, eh?

Ardnax, to be honest, your drawings looked rushed. It's as if you made them in 10 minutes. Be patient and focus on detail. Take a week (or more) to do so if you have to. Atleast, the final product will look good in the end.

keira lover, i'd like to see you do anybetter. lay off bitch.

Naxy doll, theres a trick called grid, which is actually really cool and simple. You print out a pic on a full (i mean covering the entire thing with no margins) piece of printer paper. take another piece of printer paper. this is the one you will draw on. next, take a ruler and make a grid on each paper. i find it easiest to use the width of the ruler as your size. from there you transfer what is in each little box in the photo into the corosponding blank box. focus on just what is in the box, not the entire pic its self. it really works nicely. heres one i did of angelina. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v228/julespaxton/angelina003.jpg

That is very good advice for Ardnax and a very nice drawing Jules. Ardnax, if you are not comfortable working with grids, rulers, or measurements, try to practice on one part of the face at a time. I've never used grids, rulers, or meaurements myself, and have pretty much drawn freehand all my life. Again, try to concentrate on one part of the face at a time. It would be helpful if you bought a book on drawing the human face so that you have a general idea of the structure and form of the face and parts of the face. Honestly, take some time and you will be amazed at what patience, practice, and persistence can and will achieve.

Excellent advice. I used this technique to do a charcoal drawing of the grill of a 1956 Cadillac when I was about her age.
Also, when you sit down to draw, do you sketch lightly or just start drawing? If it's the latter, get yourself a hard (4H or harder) pencil and just lightly sketch out some lines to get the eyes, nose and mouth positioned where they need to be and then gradually darken as you fill in detail.
And, contrary to what KeiraLover says...it does look much better than the first, keep trying and keep posting.

That is an excellent post hasselbrad. It is a good idea to lightly define an area/areas of the face with the pencil( or whatever drawing instrument you are using) before fully committing to a darker, more defined detail and/or contrast. Plus, it is easier to erase and correct mistakes that way.

...you can also use that to enlarge a picture. Make a copy of a pic and use a ruler to draw a grid on it. Then, on a large piece of drawing paper, lightly draw a larger grid. This will allow you to enlarge a picture to virtually any size you want.
