[EDIT] - made some changes to the hue as i was'nt happy with it. also updated logo


thanks to [link] for allowing me to use this his photo. original :[link]

Well this was allot of hard work, which I did'nt intend to do at the start, this took 2.5 days to complete, using illustrator only.
PS was used to put in the diagonal lines and for croping and framing.


Click here: [link] if you want to see a close-up of the hair, as im quite pleased how it turned out.

I like the colors, the set-up, the work...very good, it's great! That hair is a piece of work on its own, you know. I really can't find a thing wrong with it. The no-background thing works for the composition so can't say nothing there. Ok, maybe just one thing: the cheekbone. To me, it seems too harsh. Not just the face shadow but like another shadow is passing over his face. But, then again, it works toward the dark feel of the piece and you like it as is. Ignore me, really. :D Giving you my fave vote. Keep it up! :clap:

It is funny how often the most simplest thing to draw becomes the hardest, like drawing a circle. Though the feeling of it is a lot like what waiting is, after all, when you're waiting for something it's like nothing else is existing. Woody Allen once put it, "I beleive that 90% of life is just showing up", personally I would think that 90% of life is waiting, cause let's face it of how much time we actually spend waiting, that shoudl give you an idea of what it amounts to.

a stand-out peice in your gallery because of its rare angle and subject. hating the overused stripey background but i'll let you off : )

in retrospect i don't like the stripes either now, i might change it in the future and update the logo. glad you like the rest of it though :D

i reckon u could do more wih this... u put so much detail in to teh figure - but the background does nothing for it... even something as simple as shadowing would give it a base - insstead of it floating within teh space.
