Carlzon portrait by *BikerScout is so life-like you would swear he was looking right into your soul. Amazing lighting and skin textures make this an outstanding portrait painting!

Carlzon portrait



Digital painting based on this wonderful photograph by *carlzon :iconcarlzon:

This is my most technical, and hence ambitious, painting yet. The ref photo has a number of light sources so the colour graduations are subtle and varied which really tested my eye for colour.

And I worked directly with colour - something I very rarely do - but this piece demanded colour from the very beginning.

Again, huge thanks to Bernt for allowing me to use his photograph as a reference. :aww:
