It's not really black and white, is it? I can see that the door in the background has a bit of sepia color in it, and I'm wondering why that is. Like, why the door?

I guess the character is looking away from the door. Hmm. It's a puzzle. There's no way I'm going to find an answer to that, so I guess I'll drop it.

I do have a criticism about the hair. On the right side (my right, his left), it looks like the hair is a bit washed out. There is a bit of sepia in it. It's distracting, and I wish that wasn't there.

One thing that impresses me about this is that it's a portrait of a guy. That's unusual in Deviant Art. But I like the expression on his face. I like the pose. He look like someone who has youth, strength, health, and intelligence, but needs a purpose: some way to apply all that to something useful. That's too common in the world.

I'm glad that you didn't retouch some of the details, like the spots on his arm and shoulder, and the dirt on the wall behind him.

Overall, I think this is very impressive. Good work!

Hi, thanks... for technique.. this is first from bigger serie, and all of this has that "strange" orange/sepia gradients somewhere.. i took it as canvas where I can paint, nothing in wolrd isnt really black and white, so it is just my mark or accent of fine art mind maybe. Still trying to do thing little bit differently.. I do not like typical average systems and genres or type. So that is why.

thank you so much for nice words.. if you wat see more photos from him: here you are:…; , but some of them I will upload maybe later here, to DA, too.
Wish you the best,

Beautiful. I love how you can make out all the details of the hairs on his legs and arms.
