Re: Male Portrait

I don't know what this is. He started out as Jesus then he became Satan then I settled on a dude in an alley. I think I'm losing my mind.

Combine the thoughts of this one from Joe and the one below of Oltenius' and I think the situation could indeed include flames. Nice work. Great thought. I may play along the lines of these.

Lyle, nice second one. Pretty boy? hmmmm

Lqqker, you caught the reality quite well. Nice treatment. Even I didn't notice or remember the scar near his left eye.

Palms, my friend, superb work as always. I love your style on the second one especially.

Danny, you always manage to pull something from the many programs you test into your art work and make it unique and well done. Nice sketch work with this one.

Baldy, Geepee, Peter, Steve way to go. Each of you saw his unique features and played with the theme in a different way that shows a separate portion of personality.

I'm enjoying all the different renditions. Thanks all.

Janet

However, I'm going to add a newer one to the mix. Enjoy guys and gals.

Re: Male Portrait

Nice job Andy. I like the treatment you used. It is crisp yet a little bit gritty, which fits the subject.

Re: Male Portrait

I don't know...when I first looked at him it was an image that did not appeal to me, for reasons I'm probably better off not knowing. So, I tried to "toughen" him up. Many of the previous contributors did just that...good direction to go in. Great work everyone...Palms, your AHB was stupendous.

For this I used two separate textures, duplicate layers and blending modes. My eyes are screwy from looking at this so closely. Also added the two textures.

Re: Male Portrait

Veralisa, I like your interpretation. It does look gritty and tough. Perfect for the reaction you had to the photo! Great job.
