Trying to start painting portraits directly in colours rather than grey scale. Very pleased with how this one came out, especially compared to my first attempt at colour portraits. Will probably go back to it and tweak bits and blend some more maybe at some point, but I spent ages on it and I like how it looks. Feel I learned more out of this one too. Painted 85% of it in photoshop then took it into sai for the hair and blending. I cannot blend in Photoshop well at all,the airbrush destroys everything and the hard brush always leaves edges. Any tips?

Maybe come back to it and tweak some stuff at some point but overall i like how it looks. Updated it and rendered the hand out more, hopefully that improves it rather than detracts.

Went fora kind of cyberpunkish kind of theme.Tried to keep a royalty theme in there with the purple and gold too, seeing as he is supposed to be a prince.

Someone mentioned the lips were a little big but I think they kinda work, might tweak them at some point though and see how it looks.

Portrait of Rufus Sewell from Dark City, might refine the details a bit at some later point, but quite pleased with how it looks.

Would be good if people could tell who they are.... Thu, 21 Jun 2012 12:13:14 -0400
