WOW!
I know how hard it is to paint such a artificial light...

once again, awesome use of light and a great concept too... i like how the tones are completely different in this one than in the self portrait one i commented on...
yet they both evoke a similar calm, inner-peace type feeling

superb jobs, keep up the great work :)

really nice, even more unreal feeling than the similar one of a girl.. bit more like fantasy art or i suppose surrealism really in the way its painted. got that chiarascuro workin for you alright

Stunning. Is there a deeper meaning behind his inner light covering his groin? Definately makes you think.

In Martial Arts your 'centre' - the point from which all movement begins and ends - is located just above the groin. The man in the painting - my Fiance - is a Master, he has an Inner Strengh and Light that I have tried to depict in the work.
