Creative Portraits: Handsome Dude in a White Coat

This guy looks like he needs to be sketched, painted, artified in some way. Have at it...

My interpretation: Based on Richard Ramsey's method, the review of which will be finished in a week or so.

He looks like a Boy Band, guy. I cleaned up the scruffy stubble. (I hate that look)

Re: Creative Portraits: Handsome Dude in a White C

Swampy i had to laugh when i saw your comment above (about stubble) i looked at the post earlier when my 6 year old granddaughter was here she took a look and went he's ugly i just tried out a simplfier on it and she changed her mind he then looked cute, apparently it was all the stuff around his chin etc it looked horrible just like it does on "dad" she said. I have yet to tell her "dad" and more to the point at 6 how does she get to know whats cute ?

Great work by all and great photo Danny

Re: Creative Portraits: Handsome Dude in a White C

I read a survey somewhere last summer that said women hate that stubbled 'unkempt' look. I guess guys think it is 'macho' or something. You're grandaughter has good taste. LOL

Re: Creative Portraits: Handsome Dude in a White C

This wasnt what was intended ( believe it or not i was altering a texture and just tried it on this image and it sort of grew from that ) and then i felt left out with not doing a b&w so done one of them as well

Good one, Palms, but the catch lights are a little bright.
