Kiefer Sutherland by Sheridan-J Kiefer Sutherland by Sheridan-J
Ok, last Kiefer. I promise! (Hey, I've been watching "Touch", ok? It's a great show. lol I still miss "Heroes"....but it'll do for now!)

The last two were more stylized and pimped out with effects, and I just wanted to do one that is more...classical. No flashy overlays, lighting or anything.

I also wanted to do this one so I could release the full, 250dpi 100% resolution version.

So feel free to hit "Download Image" up there if you wanna see the entire image in its original size, my hand and all the lovely textures in all their glory :)

WARNING: It's BIG. You've been warned.

Original ref: [link]
(I aged him a little here to bring him into the 2012/"Touch" era) Plus that reference has been Photoshopped to death. His skin is so not that smooth, especially round the eyes lol.

Photoshop CS5
20-25 hours.
Airbrush + Texture brushes.
Fabric texture overlays. (Even on the face to rough it up more.)
Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

Well, I guess Touch is cancelled. But I'm not too sad considering 24 is coming back! I can't wait!

I love this show ^^ wish people would do more fanart of the show...Jake and his father both...maybe together? I'm hoping they'll come out with a new season, because if not, I think I might cry.
