warm up portrait by Alex0wens warm up portrait by Alex0wens
Lol, so this is my attempt at painting realistically. Honestly, its started out as a warmup and just went way too far, there are still several areas of the painting that are unresolved, but I doubt I'll do anything else with it. Obviously the subject is me. I can't really tell if the likeness is any good or not. Critiques are welcome

Done in artrage, painter, and a bit of touch-up in PS2

... back to commissions!

This is really brilliant!! I really love that there are no visible lines and just warm colors mixed with the cold background color. It would be really exciting to see an art piece dedicated in this particular rendering technique you used. The picture looks very solid so, I wouldn't know what to critique. Awesome job, again!

Definately a very good likeness with amazing contrasts in the coloring. The neck is a little bit enlongated but definately good enough to lick!:blush:

Nice drawing. Proportionally it appears very realistic. The heavy darks and soft but contrasting lighting stylize the image, but in a way that keeps with the comic-like style I've seen in your other works. I like it. Good work.
