Danan

My latest commissioned portrait work.

Danan is a rather troubled young sorcerer turned to assassin training out of a desire for revenge.

The portrait and the character are property of the client, shown with her permission.

I've started going in a more painterly direction, trying to turn away from showing superflous detail, but implying it, more 'oil-realistic' than ' photo-realistic ', it's an interesting road, IMO

Good lord the hair must have taken for ever! I am super impressed with the sheer amount of detail, though I would think that the farther away parts (like the back of the head) would be slightly fuzzier than the front parts? Just a suggestion, it looks really fantastic though!

Thank you! On this new path I must fight the urge to detail, I think it'll take me a while to find my happy medium.

I'm usually like that too, though I've stopped zooming in all the time on my digital pictures and am trying to focus on the big picture instead. I find it helps a bit!

Will keep the suggestion in mind, thanks!

Really amazing work and I agree that the blemishes and imperfections are great for complete realism, but not many want to see that in a memorably portrait. Very clean work with great values and the hair is really a great touch IMO! Super!

looks awesome! the hair is a little bit "too" much detailed to me, but you did a great work on face textures and char. design. :thumbsup::)

Thank you very much! Still working on balancing 'detailed' and ';painterly'.
