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!
