Human Coltrane by MayYeo Human Coltrane by MayYeo
Second one in my "Human portraits" series. He is Coltrane Holland... He was born around 1770. I wished I could emulate some sort of oil impasto but it didn't look good (at least not with the Painter versions that I own). So it's very sharp and all that >.<

Photoshop CS4, Painter7 and X

Named for the son in "Mister Holland's Opus," I presume? The detail on this is -fantastic-!

It's amazing how you could render the velvet jacket and the brocade waistcoat...
Nor to mention everything else!

This is fantastic! I LOVE how you've done the lace and the expression is so endearing. I wonder, the eye on camera left, did you mean to make it so wide and bright? It seems a bit bulgy, the sclera that is, though his face is so lovely, it's little difference. I'm thinking, is that eagle a sculpture in the background, sitting on his desk? Do you think it may be a little bright? I do hope you don't mind the little critique. The work is so marvelous regardless though, and I certainly can't turn something that nice out of Painter. Most of all I love that hair! I want to run my fingers through it. :D

Ah, don't worry! I actually like crits! I usually collect crits and suggestions and then upload a better version =) Yours are all valid! Thanks for your very kind words ^^

That is so wonderful that you're so accepting of critique. I know it is not always easy, especially when a lot of time is put into a piece! Just curious, did you reference Jonas Sundström for the face? It reminds me of him a lot, and I just love him!

That is why! Because it took so long, what's a few more minutes to make it look better (with the help of others)? ^^
No, I didn't know that guy at all, but he is very handsome 0.0 I used Danila Polyakov as reference(he's one of my big muses ^^U)

Eeee, high five for fellow couture muses! Danila is truly epic imo. :D That makes me feel better because I kept looking at the face going "WHY YOU SO FAMILIAR!?" Brain nagging, haha.
