Okay :aww: I actually did this painting last year for my best friend's birthday. She absolutely adores Jeremy Renner, so I thought I'd surprise her with this painting.
I included this in my year 12 Art folio and I thought I had already posted this here on DA, but apparently I was so caught up in school that I forgot. :XD:
But it's better late than never.

This painting was nearly the death of me, :faint: I was quite busy at the time when I did it, so I worked on it for a few hours every day for 2 weeks, I used a different technique than usual by using the pen tool to create shapes and then painting inside the selected area. :la: In the step by step you can see how much cleaner it is than my usual style of painting. Plus I did it 8 months ago.
I used a variety of references, including an artist on DA who painted the same image. :iconlasse17: (who kindly gave me permission)
I used my own images for the bokeh effect in the top corner. (hehe out-of-focus photograph of my walllet)

:bulletblue: 35+ Hours
:bulletblue: Wacom Intuos 4 Medium Graphics Tablet
:bulletblue: GIMP

:bulletblue: Here is a digital painting tutorial for GIMP that I made that helps explain how I work:
