I know, rite? About freakin' time! Haha.

Truth is, I've been searching for a great picture of him to paint for almost a year and come up with nothing (sometimes I'd find an amazing picture, but the quality would be rubbish- too small/too blurry/to grainy/too scanned from a magazine etc.)

Fiiiinally came across this one [link] (by pure chance) and it just HAD to be done!
Loved the expression- it's very him, and the shadows were wonderfully dramatic, but complimenting :nod:. I noticed it was taken in the 2001 era, so I decided to change him up a bit to the later 2007-2010 era.

This is also the first time a painting had gotten the better of me and I actually (literally) cried over it. I was really struggling to get it right because all the details, shadows and sweat drops really caught me off guard. Just plain frustrating- plus it's getting to be a busy time of year and I just wanted to get this DONE :frustrated:

Photoshop CS5
About 30 hours total
Airbrush, Dodge/Burn tool for detail and Sharpen/Blur tool for finishing touches!
Also with the help of Photoshop Skin texture brushes! Crucial tool for something like this!
