Self Portrait - Video by DarlingMionette Self Portrait - Video by DarlingMionette
Well, it's actually more like 48 minutes :3. Voice narrated. Complete with helpful tips, random rambling, ranting at airplanes, and a few stories. It should be fairly interesting to listen to. LOL

You can find it here: [link]

People I mentioned in the video (that you should go visit!):
:iconjamiedavenport: <-Twin Sister who does Anime
:iconbaproductions: <-Ben who gives me awesome advice :3
:iconambimie: <-Amber who cut my hair.

+Fav it if you appreciate it. That way I know if it's worth making more of these :3

haha yah, i sped this one up 40% so it's a lot shorter :3 but if i'd talked during the original file, the audio would have been ruined -_- it's hard to add the audio on after it's been sped up because the video moves so fast you can't really stop to give any real information about what you're doing XD

It's funny because you talk about how you don't like certain things about your face, and then you mention you have an IDENTICAL twin sister. She must be like "jee thanks" lol.

Finally watched it and loved it :)

FYI I'm part Native American too and also have squinty eyes and a big nose ;) I think most Native Americans are descended from Asians a long long long LOOOOOONG time ago. At least that's what I heard. :) :)

Just stumbled upon this. Though I'm not a digital artist I still found it informative (and entertaining). I might find space somewhere for the tips and tricks seeping through and comfortably curling up in my subconscious. And it was a nice insight into your artwork. Always interesting to see how other artists create their magic. :)

The portrait is awesome..I also enjoyed the video as well mostly because of the commentary(which was hilarious i might add). Its always cool to see what goes on in the mind of an artist while there working.

No Prob..hey btw what kind of Wacom tablet would you recommend for a beginner, but is satisfying
Reply
:icondarlingmionette:
DarlingMionette Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Typically I recommend anything by wacom - the bamboo is their lower end model (and it's a good one if you aren't ready for a bigger tablet). I use an Intuos 4 which is the next step up, but honestly there's not much difference between it and the bamboo (or the old graphire 4 I used to use XD) except the nibs wear out a lot faster on the intuos.

I finished watching it this evening and worked on my own piece as you talked, it has helped me a lot with my shading but I still have a lot to learn. I love the way you talked and don't worry there weren't too many references to planes :P

Oh and ur friend's right about the skin. Whenever I see ur pics i think that somethings....not right...oh but what the hey it's ur style~ I think it'll really look better if you didn't blend it that much tho (hope you don't mind lalalala)
