Hi,
this is a re-work of a previous drawing.
I've been working more on the brushes and textures, trying to open more possibilities for expression.

All done with Wacom Intuos Pro and Photoshop. Brushes designed and worked on during the last two years.

Very nice, I love the detail of the face and the curo-scuro of the rest.

Interesting image and effect but I have a problem with the title. A painterly portrait is made out of painterly brush strokes (Rembrandt or Soutine) this portrait has a painterly overlay that has nothing to do with the portrait. It is a little like those textured cardboard prints that are supposed to look like painted brush strokes. Also when you get to anything that you consider important, the face, you refrain from your special effect.

I have to agree with Harry Spitz: I was expecting a portrait built with maybe broader, looser brushstrokes.

Having said that, I must add that your portrait is stunning in it's own way :)
