Well I'm no Vincent Van Gough (I'm no oil painting either lmao ) but that hasn't stopped me dabbling in the arts over the years, so I'll add a couple of my music releated pieces I've done. Feel free to tell me if you think they're a load of Pollocks. biglaugh

Mine has started to go grey in patches hence the 'sculptured' Goatee, I'd be much happier if the hair had have fallen off my face instead of the back of my head. lmao

Nice work, Plastic Demons!! As I work with pencils myself, I was quite partial to the James Dean portrait. smile

I may put up some of my work here if I can get something done to my satisfaction. The last really good drawing I did was done 13 years ago!!! shock

I haven't done any art for a couple of years myself, I was in the process of teaching myself to paint with Water colours, but then other elements in my life took priority and so drawing and painting were neglected. Drawing with graphite has been my favourite medium for many years, I paint for diversity as much as anything as I can only draw still life. I wish I could draw from my imagination as I envy people that are able to do that, but I'm thankful that I'm able to express myself in some way, even if it is only for my own satisfaction. If others get some pleasure from what I do then that's a bonus, the same goes for my photography. :rolleyes:

My sanity is only just intact at the moment but in my humble opinion you should use without goatee shot (due to its element of class) as left hand piccie resembles a columbian drug dealer who is a tad annoyed.

Alan - it is very brave of you to exhibit yourself this way - congratulations (even I have not dared it this way)! And you know how much I care about you... smile

...but the left photo is... uh... with all respect... out of question... laugh

... and I'd appreciate it if you showed your EYES. As far as I know, you've got nothing to hide anymore. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

A smile on top will make you irrestsitible, my dear. excited excited excited

Love

Hi Isabel I kinda included those two images as I class them more as photographic studies into Portraiture, rather than a true reprsentation of how I look. The one on the left was posed in that way, because it is the complete opposite of how I was at that time. Normally every photo that was taken of me had me sporting a hugh grin, so I wondered what I would look like if I wasn't so open and forthcoming with my visual emotions.
I would tend to class myself as a photographic artist rather than a Photographer like Ash, as I am a long way off the sort of standard of work that Ash produces. I use the camera to produce pictures rather than photos, hence the reason I refer to them as snapshots as I'm capturing a moment in time, rather than the way something really looks like because if you tried to find it again you couldn't, because that moment has gone forever. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

'The eyes are the windows to your soul' which is why I always wear shades on self-portraits, it de-personalises it deliberatley as it's just a picture that happens to use myself as the subject.

I'll see about using a real photo for my avatar instead of a picture. wink kiss

That's cool, cheers Alan. I wouldn't class myself as a photographer, I work for Nisan Motor Manufacturing in Washington in Tyne And Wear. But thanks anyway, I'm flattered by your kind words.

Also, Mikeys ability to strike up a likeness has hit the bullseye again ! Remember 'Florian Young' Mike ? [The scala pic], now you've come out with another corker. I do believe it's 'Bennett' from Commando, remember his demise.......'Let off some steam Bennett' said Leiutenant John Matrix wink

Nice art Alan....keep it gannin' sunna wink
