I spent way too much time on this piece and way too much time in not attempting to finish it.

MEDIUM: Pencil, Corel Painter IX, and Adobe Photoshop 7.0

I really love how you did the hair, few people bother to put in the natural variegation and even fewer actually pull it off.

I really like this piece, unfinished as it is. It's something about his face, his eyes. . . . It makes me wonder what he's thinking about. Well done. :)

Great work on pose and colours. :D
Hmm...even the background is very detailed...great. x)

The lighting is rather strong on the face but the shirt looks bit too dark to me.
Maybe there should be more light on the right sleeve? But you said it's unfinished so I guess you might have added some more lighting to it anyway. :)

Very capturing eyes. Beautiful. :heart:

Thank you. Did I say unfinished? Because I probably won't we working on it anymore. I have a newer version of him in my gallery up. Thanks pointing out some of the lighting issues.

This is really great! I love the textures in the background as well as his shirt. And his hair color is gorgeous. I'm sooo jealous! X3

Wonderful job!

Ploy, I think that you already know how much I love this piece. The color of his hair gets me every time. I also really like all of the necklaces. Great job.

Laziness pays off well in the end. I'm loving this pic. So how've you been? What happening at SCAD? Massive amounts of all-nighters I suspect...

I really love this and it it's well worth a +fav! I love the textures in the background, as well as the little details such as the cross and the way his hair falls on his hands. It looks soft, actually. I want to play with it now. XD This is a lovely piece! The effort you put into it really shows.

I know it's cheezy, but like I said, I had to throw something in there. I may rework the background. Thanks for your comment and I'm glad you like it. You better be visiting SCAD in the spring cuz we never got a chance to say goodbye to ya!
