Eyes are kind of odd looking in this one, but your work is amazing!

You did absolutely phenomenal work on the realism of this portrait. I almost mistook it for a photograph. Fantastic painting on the skin. :clap:

This is extremely realistic, and I like the natural wrinkles around his eyes. Great job on this! :clap:

I have a question for you. I use Corel Painter 11, which I really like, but I hear a lot of different opinions on CS5. So I wanted to ask: Do you think it is a good program? What sort of effect does it achieve when you use it?

Thanks :)

To be honest, I only use the later Photoshop versions for the custom Brushes and Textures I can create/download... so I don't really know all the capabilities of CS :XD:

At the moment, it's feeling a little too fidgety for me, so I've slinked back to my old Photoshop 7 which is as basic as you can get when it comes to straight-out airbrush painting/coloring :blush:

I've used Corel Painter 9 in the past, but still find Photoshop to be a lot easier and straightforward to work with. It just depends on what you're after, really :D

:) Thank you so much for answering! I feel a bit better about not having CS now. :aww:

No problem.

I think all these later CS versions are more suited for Photography/Photo manipulating anyway. I just find myself fighting against all its flashy new "automatic scrolling" features and excessive menu/pop ups and window grouping :XD:

Hey, I like this transformation very much :D . Goddamn in one day... Would take me weeks for such a result, granted.

I was sure I knew that guy — he played the weapon dealer in CSI: Miami who was supposedly killed by the explosion of his boat. He usually plays baddies, right? I see he also played in Prison break... Aaaah, there you are ;) .

He looks a little bit younger in your drawing. Fantastic work, man :) .

Haha yeah CSI :XD:

He's pretty typecasted as a "Bad guy" actor these days =P Loved him in Silent Hill, Human Target and the new Resident Evil movie aswell.

I don't remember him in Silent Hill note. I'm just looking forward to watching Resident Evil: Milla Jovovich, Wentworth Miller, Ali Larter (Heroes), Kim Coates, Sienna Guillory (Hellen of Troy, TV)... Ah, good peeps :D .
