At the risk of patting you on the back too heavily - these portraits tell me ...
you have a real future as a portrait painter - if you should go down that road.

One key you have mastered is the concept of setting the eyes 'back' in the head;
which allows the eyes to become the centerpiece of the images.

Should you pursue portraiture for compensation ... your demonstrated ability is - money in the bank.

That is my humble opinion.

Thank you. That means so much. Had an accident recently so had plenty of time on my hands. I went back to my first love...drawing,and explored the concept of 'Hyper-realism'. Sorry my camera phone doesn't do them justice!
I'll post some more when I get chance.

awesome skill. an honest critique would be to push values more on the focal points so it appears more crisp and catches the attention.

for example on the walter white my eyes are drawn to the beard because of the nice contrast. its lacking a bit of those darkest shadows with his wrinkles etc. hard and soft edge control is really good if you manage to guide viewers eyes with values i think the appeal would go through the roof

Technically, it's superb. But please tell me (and I don't mean to be disrespectful) why copy photographs? Doing so takes half of your credit off. No?

spamming your url randomly doesnt serve your cause im afraid. if you want to help artists just buy their works.
