Time for a self-portrait!

Yes those are Matrix Reloaded sunglasses. And that is a Lord of the Rings ring. I know, I'm a nerd :lol:

Hi-res up for download this time if you wanna see some more detail [link]

David Nagal's skin texture and highlight brush pack worked amazingly well for this!

Photoshop CS3. About 9 hours straight based off a photo my dad took for me to reference from! Looking at the photo at such a hi res, I noticed little freckles and spots I never even knew I had :lol:

I am amazed. Your ability to use depth of field this way makes it look exactly like a photograph.

I came here from your Handsome Jack painting and a few others in your gallery. But THIS... wow. This is truly impressive. I can hardly tell it's a painting and not a photograph at all unless I look at it quite closely. I'm blown away by how amazing you are at portraits. I look forward to seeing more of your work and checking out the rest of the gallery!

Some parts looks a bit glossy, but honestly yours is the skill to capture an image of a person in an art forever.

I actually thought this was a photo... Jeebus.. I love the amount of detail. >:3 (as well as the little dorky quirks. Totally rad references!)

looked at your glasses tut. great stuff. I'm always trying to paint everything because i feel like cheating if i don't. but the tools are there! i should use them! Sometimes I forget that being an artist also means finding the most efficient way to do something with the tools you have at your disposal.

How the hell is this a Painting? This looks like a photograph... How do you make it look so realistic? But seriously how did you get your art to look so realistic?

But ?!?! You're 'photoshopped' !! LOL :-)

Really impressive ! You gave me the desire to return to the drawing after 15 years without practice. So, I have done it and I have created a devianart profile ... I have some WIP things (all of them are not actually published), not at your level of skill, but you were the spark to restart :-)
