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!

"Heute treff' ich einen Herren
Der hat mich zum Fressen gern
Weiche Teile und auch harte
Stehen auf der Speisekarte

Denn du bist, was du isst
Und ihr wisst, was es ist...

Es ist mein Teil - nein
Mein Teil - nein
Da das ist mein Teil! - nein
Mein Teil - nein"
 
Rammstein
