It's beautifully done! I especially love the eyes and the detail and texture of the doublet. And I'm intrigued by his expression. I want to know what he's thinking. If I saw this on the cover of a book on a shelf I'd grab it.
This is so beautiful! Favorite!
Omg, he's yummy!! Beautiful work!!
So you think portraits are easy? That gives me so much hope, thank you!! It's all about that blending, isn't it? I don't really get blending yet but it's like the pen tool, I think. One day, it'll just fall into place and I'll totally understand! XD
vous faites les commissions ? o_o <3
I also love all the little details on his clothes!
He actually looks a bit like this guy...
Okay, so I'm asking you know. May I use this picture to a char I'm making on a board?
It's an amazing picture, and you are amazing, when you can make things like that!
I love how you did the hair, and the clothes. The shading of the face is brilliant. But I simply can't stop looking at those eyes. They're hidden in the shadows, yet they look so very real. And they have a glint that makes me shudder. In a good way.
Now excuse me while I have to go and fave this.
