My suggestion is to do the grisaille thing. Paint your subject in black and white. Then do some thin layers of skin tone on top. That's NOT what I did in the postal self portrait, but it allows you to make mistakes in color and not fuck up your drawing / value work. Face is fucked but that's how I'm approaching this master copy.

Thank you.

As far as I can tell, oil paints are all good. I've never worked with an oil color and think, 'this shit sucks!!' as far as canvas , that's a different animal. Canvas can be a game changer -- the self portrait and the master copy are both on cheap shit from Hobby Lobby. And I've paid dearly as a result. It slows you down. You're always babying the canvas, scraping down ridges, hard to describe. I suggest Claessens double primed, if you're looking to create a masterpiece. Here's an example of a work in progress on that canvas. There's a lot to do but it's a lot nicer to work with. Otherwise just gesso the shit out of some cheap shitty canvas and sand it down.

My mom says the likeness is dead on, but my buddies at the bar say otherwise. Self portraits are tough. Need to start a new one and NOT spend over a year on it.

It's also life-size, I should add. May have bitten off more than I could chew.

Not that anon but I can understand why your buddies disagree with your mom. Self portraits ARE tough and aside from YOU, your mother or father are most likely to know what you look like in person- chances are you spend more time with them than your friends. Love the painting btw, it's way better than anything my /beg/ ass can do! Also, try doing half sized portraits or less- it'll take less time but could be quite as accurate.

12x12” four-five color oil painting (iron oxide red/yellow, cobalt violet/blue, black) from a year or so ago when I was first learning to oil paint. I’m mostly a pastel painter so it’s been a fun experience.

Really enjoy your handling of lighting in particular, anon! I gotta start experimenting with larger paintings, the biggest I do is 12x16”. I know what you mean about the cheap canvases, that’s what put me off oil painting for years. I started buying large sheets of 1/4” hardboard, cutting it down, and priming it. Much nicer to paint on and easy to adjust the surface texture with different gesso brushes and sanding.

If you actually look like the drawing you posted you're obviously not ugly. So either you're lying or you were deluded into adopting male beauty standards from teenager girls (the only demographic of women who actually prefer non-masculine men).

Case in point: look at the kind of men who women match with on Tinder (you can look it up on youtube since they like to brag). Women 20+ are generally not matching with effeminate faggot looking men but with Chads (good looking masculine men).
That's the kind of men most women consider the most attractive. K-pop male idols are mostly a teenager girl thing.

6/10 the typical HMOFA poster. Probably a fan of Jyoka's furry porn.
5/10 Average man who could instantly look better with contact lenses.

You might look close to a Tyrone or its latino equivalent but we can't know because of the fat covering your face.
5/10 from what I can see but could be higher due to the anime style not being highly representative of IRL aesthetics. Get some sleep, a good posture and go to the gym (which btw also helps with posture).
4/10 masculine looking woman or 5/10 androgynous looking man who would gain at least one solid point with a better haircut.
6/10 man with obvious potential to look 7/10 if he went to the gym, groomed his eyebrows and either shaved that excuse of a beard or got a thicker more defined one (which sadly is dependent on genetics and age, so when in doubt better to shave it).

6/10 around 35yo man obviously burdened by fat and having tired eyes due to lack of sleep. Why are you not in the gym right now? Also, it would obviously improve your looks if you dropped the cap (unless you're balding, then look up a hair transplant and finnasteride) and you started dressing more your age instead of trying to pretend to be a 20 something forever. The beard could use some grooming also, looking like a hillbilly isn't doing you any favors assuming you live in a city.
5/10 Average man. Could improve by going to the gym.
4/10 Why the fuck are you doing this? You could easily be a 6/10 if not for the ridiculous manbun and onions beard. Get a real haircut, contact lenses and shave the shitty low-test dicksucker beard. Plus going to the gym helps with jaw width, definition and neck thickness.
6/10 half-asian man. Most likely has high success with asian girls since they prefer half-asians over pure asian guys, but low success with western women due to their generally western aesthetics preferences.
5/10 Ace Ventura looking motherfucker. How to improve: get new haircut, groom your eyebrows, use braces if your teeth are crooked and consider developing a less basic fashion sense for shirts.

7/10 probably a Wall Street card-carrying sociopath but good looking nonetheless.
2/10 Bro you're not even trying. Being morbidly obese, not trimming your eyebrows, not sleeping well, being balding and yet not using finnasteride, and not grooming that hobo beard are all AVOIDABLE problems. What the fuck are you WAITING to fix it? We only live one life, make it count or at least die trying.
7/10 Clearly good looking asian woman burdened by a lack of sleep and wearing her hair on a bun instead of letting it flow. Get some sleep and be confident. You're cute but for some reason seem to hide it. Fix that and you'll get better results.
3/10 I'm sorry. You look like one of my divorced school teachers when I was a kid. How to improve: First and foremost stop being fat, second trim your eyebrows, and go to theraphy (Tbh your entire look and expression reminds me of a bitter middle aged feminist teacher who couldn't let go of an evil Chad womanized that broke her heart 25 years ago but instead of dating in her own league she decided to spent the rest of her life ruminating the pain until it turned into ressentment towards the entire male population). Finally, date men of your own league.

An obvious caricature so the exaggerated features are exactly that, but from what I can infer I assume you must be a 5/10 average british woman or very androgynous guy in his early 20s.
4/10 man. Obvious improvements: shaving the beard (we're sadly not in the 00s anymore) and getting a new haircut.
6/10 Slightly above-average looking man burdened by a sad tired expression and lack of sleep. Solutions: sleeping better (also sun bathing a bit so it helps with the areas under your eyes) and going to theraphy so you can enjoy life more.
3/10 due to obvious obesity. If you weren't obese you would probably look like a 5/10 cool tech uncle. Losing fat and shaving the moustache would certainly help a lot.
5/10 Mexican psycopath burdened by fat. How to improve: going to the gym, shaving that hobo beard and trimming your eyebrows.
You didn't even have to write the word "legalize" and I would already know you're a 6/10 drug addict and most likely an avid weed promoter. Nothing I can recommend besides knowing when to quit that lifestyle before your 30s so it ends not being more than a phase in your life and it doesn't ruin it.
8/10 european man who can't draw well yet but is obviously working on it.
8/10 very cute mexican or centroamerican girl in her early 20s. Despite winning the genetic lottery looks sad. The solution: going to theraphy and letting pain go since, as I previously mentioned to another poster, not letting the pain go will most likely make it turn into ressentment, and that wouldn't do any good.

>> No.6365968

>I'm literally the only one without pointers for improvement, it's over.
No you're not. And also it's not over.
The reason why you look like I said IN YOUR DRAWING is because IN YOUR DRAWING you have a very particular look that instills fear on people.
To elaborate further: In the drawing you posted you have a VERY angry and callous facial expression, with frowned eyes and clenched teeth under a closed mouth, which is a very unwelcoming and even threatening expressing to show. It's a very bad expression to show someone because it conveys the threat of violence, even if that's not intentional.
That said, this of course DOES NOT MEAN you look that way IRL or in normal circumstances.

The way you can improve is by learning about facial expressions and body language (which btw includes your face's). Non-verbal communication is a very importan aspect of how you show yourselft to others. And of course by presenting yourself to other people in a more welcoming manner when it comes to your initial facial expression.
Other than that, be confident. I'm only an anonymous posters making ASSUMPTIONS based on DRAWINGS, that of course are most likely not a 1:1 depiction of the people posting ITT's real faces or character.

Physical looks-wise I cannot recommend you anything else to improve because you've already done everything that can be done.
You're not fat, your haircut is okay, you're properly dressed (the hat or cap is a personal choice and not a device to hide baldness or something like that from what I can tell). There's nothing else to improve. However, AS A MAN there're more things you can realistically add to your person to make it more attractive to the opposite sex. Men are extremely visual, but women are not. They value many more aspects of a man when for example choosing a mate (mostly personality characteristics, your values, your capacity to provide -when they're in the late 20s and older-, etc). So don't lose hope and enjoy life.

>> No.6365986

Also I know that doomer meme and the kind of people who use it, and let me tell you something:
DO NOT DESPAIR and stop consumming "doomer" or "black pill" content because it's obviously not making you (or anyone) any better.
"Misery loves company" is unfortunately an accurate phrase, because some very sad people would rather bring other sad people down (like a bucket of crabs) instead of ACCEPTING their own defects (NOBODY IS SUPPOSED TO BE PERFECT, so there's literally no point in trying to hold yourself to a standard less that basically nobody can achieve or hold).

Yes, it is true LOOKS matter a lot, specially when it comes to dating. Nobody could honestly deny that. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean you have to be sad about it.
Women in developed countries tend (NOT ALWAYS, but GENERALLY) enjoy what they call a "Party phase", which is comprised of partying and casually dating men of their own age. And, BECAUSE IT'S SHORT TERM DATING, they of course will value INITIAL ATTRACTION FACTORS such as looks the most, since they're NOT looking for the father of their children during that phase, and are simply looking for quick sex and fun with the hottest men they can find at the SOCIAL VENUES they're currently in.
That however DOES CHANGE a lot when around their late 20s, when they're starting to feel the NEED for a long term relationship that might lead to having kids and a family. And thus, women start to CARE a lot more about many other factors a man has or can have, mostly related to their personality (and not just how fun they are, but how responsible, assertive, productive and whatnot that makes a man a good potential FATHER). It is with women of that age AND BEYOND where a not above-average looking man have the most POTENTIAL to succeed.

>> No.6365993

And more thing: dating or your sex appeal to the opposite sex isn't everything life is about. It's only a fraction a person's life. I know it's hard to think about it clearly because I myself when I was about your age (a decade ago) was too obsessed with chasing pussy, but that will naturally change when you're 30 and beyond, mainly because of hormonal changes which having with aging.

So either with age or by logical reasoning, you will realize that life has a virtual infinite amount of things to do and enjoy, so even IF you were to not succeed with women (which is UNLIKELY given AGE ITSELF does change people's facial features, and IN MEN'S CASE sometimes for the better. I.e. Most men become more masculine looking with time and thus more attractive to men of then their own age) then you'll know it would matter anyway, and you'll still ENJOY LIFE as much as you can.

So 1) Do not lose hope, but 2) WORK YOUR ASS OFF to improve your overall lifestyle (Hope alone is not enough, WORK AND DISCIPLINE bring better and more consistent results).
That's all. Good luck.

P.S. Sorry to the other posters for the blogposting.

I believe dealing with pain and life's hardships is a very normal and expected struggle of growing up. One might think one is in an exceptional bad situation (which may be true in some cases, but it's thankfully not the norm) or that struggle only is happening to us during that time, because almost everyone is of course very averse to telling other people about their problems, at least to people in general.
What I found best to help dealing with one's struggles is:
1) THERAPY. And I mean a GOOD psychologist, not someone who simply prescribes pills (pills COULD be the better tool to help in some cases, but in most cases the source and SOLUTION of the problem comes from cognitive and behavioural factors which can be fixed or improved willingly (with a lot of effort). That's my opinion though.
2) Your trusted family members.
3) If possible, to never lose grip of your close IRL friends that you've meet along the way until that point (and I mean TRUE FRIENDS, and in the ones you've been friends since elementary school or high school, the kind of friends you meet along years of knowing each other, which almost always are so few in number one can use one hand's finger to count them, and that's okay since it's quality >>>>>>>> quantity for helping to deal with serious issues).

I'm glad you too have fixed or improved your situation.

Right before lunch break ends:

4/10 which could be a 5/10 or even a 6/10 if he went to the gym, got a more stylish (shorter or not) haircut (when it doubt about this, it's better to consult a hair stylist since what are the best haircuts for a person heavily depend on head shape so there's no one-size-fits-all), got contact lenses and either grew a beard (assuming he currently could grow a good one right now, which depends on genetics but mostly on age, which means even if right now he can't grow a beard with consistent thickness -avoid patchy/inconsistent or too thin beards-), later in life he'll most likely will. If you can't currently grow a decent beard, the advice I can give to increase a more masculine look, specially facial definition in your jawline, is a bit of regular sunbathing (ALWAYS using sun cream of course, since excesive sunbathing or without cream in the long run fastens the aging process, which is no good).

You're welcome.

First and foremost, since I'm a westerner my taste and sense of male beauty is of course heavily influenced by western beauty standards, which are different from the ones in Asia, so please keep that in mind and don't assume you're necessarily at a disadvantage.
Second, asian people as far as I know tend to naturally keep a MORE YOUTHFUL LOOK for a lot longer than people from other races. That of course is massive advantage for asian women, and a minority of asian men with individual genetic combinations that gave them a SUPER RARE mixture of androgynous facial features and masculine facial features (E.g. Androgynous eyes, nose and mouth but a masculine and defined jawline combined with extremely low bodyfat and very low muscle mass, which makes MILLIONS of teenager and early 20s girls around the world -not only in Asia- absolutely fascinated with them.
HOWEVER, since that particular look is super rare, of course most asian (or androgynous western) men can't play that stereotype well, or as well.

>> No.6367092

And therefore, since that particular look is impossible to emulate by like 99% of men in the world (besides the obvious elephant in the room, which is that most of the men who do fall into that category, let's call it the "K-pop male idol" or "Japanese male host" look, were ALL under heavy plastic surgery, which is not something I'd advice except for extreme cases which thankfully nobody ITT is an example of), for normal Asian Men, as a Western Man myself, I can recommend the following (assuming the idea of course is attracting women):

For asian or half-asian men with a natural more masculine look (Example >>6343819) I'd recommend going to the gym and doing a light routine (not a hard hypertropy routine) to MAINTAIN their body and facial shape but not altering anything else aesthetic-wise since they're already doing pretty good, although they will still struggle attracting most western (and very westernized asian) women.
And for not very masculine looking asian men (but not androgynous in a "pretty boy" sense either), then I recommend going to the gym harder (NOT going for a bodybuilder look of course, but going towards developing a body that's usually called in fitness groups as "OTTERMODE", which btw happens to the be the prefered male bodytype for MOST WOMEN over 25), and, depending your individual facial aesthetics, I advice they take a very good look in the mirror and evaluate what they could change (without plastic surgery) that would make them a bit more masculine (without going overboard obviously, since women 20+ almost universally tend to prefer a man who is masculine but not hypermasculine. For examples of this, look up the kind of male celebrity that's considered the most physically attractive in the region you live in. Unless you're in South Korea or urban Japan, changes are they look mostly masculine but with some "softer" facial features so they look "handsome" instead of "pretty" but not too rugged).

>> No.6367112

Hypermasculinity, in my experience, is only an advantage when trying to attract cougars or older women (usually divorced) who're looking to "feel young again", and a small subset of women (which usually live in low class, dangerous neighbourhoods). But I'm sure that's not the case for the men ITT, hopefully.

Continuing the advice for not so masculine asian men (or kinda androgynous western men who can't pull off a "pretty boy"/"eboy"/"fuccboi" look or whatever zoomers call it nowadays), if for example you're indian, if you don't have a defined jawline, growing a consistent beard or a stylish moustache might be BETTER, specially if you live in India or a country or a region where more masculine men are prefered (For example developing countries, or RURAL AREAS within developed countries). As a rule of thumb, masculinity and a more masculine looks is usually more appreciated by women in places where PHYSICAL LABOR is a usual part of life. while DEVELOPED CITIES usually tend to prefer a less masculine and more "refined" or "less masculine" look. But even if you live in a city, GOING TO THE GYM ALWAYS HELPS. The main difference is how much muscle mass you should aim to build. The more masculine a man wants to be, the more towards the "Ottermode" and even a bit beyond (see "Athletic", as in a tad higher muscle mass closer to a professional athlete, think an american football, baseball, basketball or rugby player or olympic swimmer body type), specially if the man in older. While for the men going for an androgynous "pretty boy" look, having visible abs (and low muscle mass) should be enough.

It can't be stressed enough how important it can be to make a man STAND OUT in social venues where women are looking for men, specially since most men dress more functionally than aesthetically almost all the time, which results in most men having a harder standing out in a group of men with visual style alone.

>> No.6367127

And lastly (yes, I'm fucking late but I'm still taking the time to answer you because despite me being an anonymous dipshit I still care just enough to give the kind of advice I wish I was given when I was 20 instead of the traditional politically correct lies I was told by my gen x parents):

A crucial advice for ASIAN men is to look up and socialize preferably in places or contexts where ASIAN MEN ARE NATURALLY OR CULTURALLY PREFERED BY THE WOMEN THERE.
An example within western countries:
A) Asian themed conventions or tourist venues (E.g. anime conventions, asian cinema festivals, asian culture places, asian dance/art/music/etc places where western women go to learn, etc).
B) In universities and such, the places where EXCHANGE STUDENTS usually gather.
C) Places where the usual male attendance is usually not super masculine or good looking in general (See: libraries, places where nerds gather but that have a better male:female ratio and are not sausage fests).
And in Asia D) TOURIST BARS where western women usually go first.
and of course E) ASIAN ONLY -OR CLOSE- VENUES where a lot of asian women meet with men.

Hopefully this information is useful to you or anyone reading these posts. Alright, I've have to go. Good luck and good bye.

aw hell yeah. thankfully ive been losing weight from just changing up my diet and not eating at night anymore. im planning on going back to the gym throughout the winter.

I see. Then of course enjoy having long hair. Win-win situation.

Regarding this
>thankfully ive been losing weight from just changing up my diet and not eating at night anymore. im planning on going back to the gym throughout the winter.
That's great, but I'd like to make the following disclaimer (nor neccesarily directed at you but for anyone interested in going to the gym and losing fat consistently):

The process of "weight loss", or to be more accurate, the process of "losing fat, while keeping muscle mass" relies MOSTLY on diet, namely on:
Eating less calories than ones you spend during the day, which in turn makes the body to use the fat which is stored in your body's fat cells as energy reserves to cover the deficit.
Ideally, the caloric deficit should be LOW (For example, 20% less calories than the ones you spend during the day) for 3 REASONS:
1) A caloric deficit too high would make your body "burn" or use as energy NOT ONLY FAT but also MUSCLE MASS. And that's something you certainly want to AVOID or at least MITIGATE. (Unless your personal objective were to reduce both fat AND muscle mass, which could be the case for example for men aiming for the "pretty boy" look, but since they're not most men it's not something I assume).
2) A daily caloric deficit too high is also counterproductive since your body will be functioning with much less energy than what it needs to work properly, specially if you're going to the gym, which negatively impacts your physical performance.
3) Because diets with high caloric deficits (or other types of "Crash diets" or that rely on depriving your body too much from one of the 3 macronutrients (Protein, Carbs and Fat), which are ALL necessary for your body to function well) (Cont)

>> No.6367578

(Cont) are either counterproductive (For example not eating enough Protein will negative impact on your muscle mass) or will become counterproductive either on the short, middle or specially the long term (for example while the diet colloquially known as "Keto" which is super restrictive with carbs DOES work in the short term for fat loss, in the middle and long term it also fucks with your metabolic rate and natural testosterone production, which makes it's VERY LIKELY for you to end up recovering a lot of the fat you lost after you break ketosis, besides having less strength during it).
It is because of this that I personally recommend essentially eating a BALANCED DIET with a small daily caloric deficit (adjusted of course to gym days and rest days) so that one can CONSISTENTLY lose fat while not losing muscle mass (or losing the least amount of it possible).

And this connects with the following: While diet is about 90% of losing fat, the REASON why men should diet AND go the gym, is because by regularly lifting weights, their bodies will in turn MAINTAIN their muscle mass, instead of using it as fuel along the fat cells.
Remember, what most normal people call someone being "toned" is actually someone "having VISIBLE muscle mass". And that's achieved by having at least a moderate amount of muscle mass and a somewhat LOW BODYFAT %. The goal of going to the gym is losing the fat while keeping as much muscle as possible, even building more of the latter in the middle and long term (Spoiler: building muscle mass takes months and is a much slower process than losing fat).

>> No.6367591

And this is for the people who have NEVER gone to the gym:

1) The first step you should take is going to your personal Medical Doctor (or a trusted medical doctor) and tell him or her that you want to the gym. Then, your doctor will send you to get a couple medical checkups so that both can be sure you're physically able to go the the gym and lift weights (and that you don't have an existing condition that might make so a bad idea).
2) One you've your medical doctor's OK and your health certificate stating that you're able and ok with lifting weights, then you go your local gym (Preferably a normal gym, it doesn't need to be super well equipped as long as it has the basics -bench, free weights -i.e. Bars, plates, dumbbells- and not just machines, ideally a squat rack) and SIGN IN.
3) Then the first thing you do in your first day is ASK the gym's own personal trainers (Who're NOT private PTs but part of the gym's own personnel and therefore are -almost always- FREE to consult), who're usually behind a desk inside the weigh lifting area or floor, if they can make you WORKOUT ROUTINE (involving lifting weights of course, preferably free weights over machines when possible). They're most likely ASK YOU what are your goals, and then you tell them what do you want to want to achieve (For example: "losing fat while keeping the muscle you have", or "building muscle mass"). Then, the gym's PT will write and give you your workout routine and will also (most likely, I'm assuming you're going to a decent gym) will EXPLAIN TO YOU how to perform EACH EXERCISE (Since TECHNIQUE is super important not only for optimal results but also with some exercises to avoid the risk of injury). He or she will also tell you to TAKE RESTS between SETS (Exercises are organized in Sets, each one of them comprised of a number of Reps or Repetitions).
4) And then you do the routine from then onwards.

Thank you for the fitness advice, Bodybuilder-san. Screenshotted

>> No.6367599

(Cont) And of course keep in mind the following:
Building muscle mass and losing fat is a gradual process, and you're generally NOT building muscle mass WHILE you're exercising but ON YOUR REST DAYS. That's why you need to rest and the reason why lifting routines either are usually about 3 lifiting days per week, or are for example 4-5 lifting days per week but with your total exercises being "split" by your muscle groups so that you never overexercise (and rest some muscles while you're working others).

Going to the gym isn't a race, it's a marathon. And you're not competting against the other people in the gym but against your own (natural as all humans are naturally lazy) laziness, so that you become stronger and more aesthetic.
That's all. Good luck.

Ok. From your drawing I can infer you:
Pros: have high cheekbones, an angular defined jaw, are physically fit.
Cons: Your hairline is slightly recessed, the size of your head in relation to your body's makes me assume you must not be exactly tall (which I assume it's a con assuming you're heterosexual).
Overall a between 6/10 or 7/10 man in probably his late 20s to early 30s. Pretty damn good height aside.

>> No.6367617

And before someone complains: I'm not short myself but I can absolutely assure you short men are still having a lot of success with women as long as they're sociable and overall well-adjusted.
For the men under 6 feet ITT I recommend:
A) Meeting women face to face instead of online (which is also something I seriously advice for EVERYONE short or tall since online dating is horribly ruthless for most men).
B) If you MUST use dating app, JUST LIE ABOUT YOUR HEIGHT (moderately of course) and let women decide for themselves if they want to reject you when face to face. Also, I don't think many people are aware of HOW MUCH women tend to lie on dating apps...
Spoiler: They lie all the fucking time, photoshop their photos, use the good ol' "strategic angles", use OLD photos, sometimes use group photos when they're the least attractive of their girl friends, etc etc etc.

I strongly advice against using online dating apps and I obviously advice meeting women in your own social circles and places you usually frequent (E.g. work -unless you work in a super formal hyper competitive cooporate setting or somewhere like that which implies certain risk; if you're a uni or college student obviously there, if you're an artist that goes to IRL art meetings of course try meeting people -not just women but people in general- there, etc), for many reasons. Mainly because it's SO MUCH EASIER to feel and act CONFIDENT when you're in a social setting based around things you enjoy and are interested in. Spoiler: Like 99% of women prefer confident men for various reasons which I won't explain due to space

Anyway, good luck and good bye.

P.S. If anyone ITT is struggling with not being assertive enough (or in other words has the problem of being a pushover, which is almost always unnatractive to women), I recommend you the following books:
"No More Mr. Nice Guy" by Robert Glover
and "When I Say No I Feel Guilty" by Manuel Smith.

>> No.6367621

*and women also use instagram filters not to mention the biggest lie: a lot of make up.

>> No.6367627

P.S 2 A lot of women's obsession with male's height is a status thing related to how they perceive themselves in relation to the other women in their girl friend group. E.g. If it's a very (covertly, as they usually are) competitive group of women, one big reason why they prefer their boyfriends or public partners to be taller is because they can be used as a "social flex" towards their female "frenemies" within said group.
