Thanks guys,
i just didn't know how to go with the eyebrows, because the reference picture was wasy too small, so i just cloned it
...but i'am not satisfied with the eyebrows.....

Thanks for your review

Jet, nice work... great job on the hair! Like the texture in the sweater too. Will you be keeping the background white?

Jet, I really enjoyed seeing this style, sort of watercolory. It's really fantastic. If ou are worried about the eyebrows (thought I like them), you could add a little white fluff on the top of them to give them a little more depth. You know, you could add a few grey hairs to make the eyebrows pop out a little. I bet you could clone a section fo the mustache to do that and rotate them to fit hair growth, or just put in a few hairy strokes and then reduce the opacity of them to give them a watercolor look like the rest of the painting.

Really cool. I like him too. That's a face of character, huh Elvira?

Thanks RW you can do better i know.thanks for not telling :)

Bloodjelly, i've been trying to do eyes for some time and here i kind of got 'em right but to the fem side..thanks

Joel you got it right the hair is ok and the sweater i did some tricky business there, back ground is on a separate layer which is off here

Lisa, thanks pal.

you were too kind ...i should 've posted it as a WIP really, as it has that unfinished look-i guess-

One thing that bothers me is how it's kind of effeminate all around. i tend to draw these features as if it was a girl, eventhough the little pic was under the layer at all times, i guess i'll incorporate some cheating techniques which i am so fond of when i get stuck like this ... :angel:

Going back to the lab Igor !

That's a very accomplished portrait, Jet! I really like the watercolour effect and the use of tone and hue. More, please!

Gloria, thanks for the reminder.....That's the beginners' most common mistake !!

I should've learned already by now, from watching all the nice paintings you all do... :(

**my hand is not entirely convinced yet, and sneaks away by itself while i'm looking away... :mad: :confused: :D

Thanks Gloria

Thanks Yako..
..Ok, Michael ...what are you singing today ? , just yesterday you were singing, that banned-word song:
We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock ******
We were at the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock
It wasn't a rock
It was a rock ******

I went and tried some long due techniques I see some members use in Painter.

I did most of it by using the "cloning" feature, then erased and tried a "clone-smear-blend" and worked alright...then i went and tried large strokes cloning (forehead -screen rightside), stippling cloning (left eye -Scr-Lt), then smudge/blend (right eye -Scr-Rt)....
..I haven't applied any texture-brush combo or overlaid texture yet.

..............before going further this is what i've got..

Jet this second version is overflowing with potential possibilities. If I were you, I would park my car right here for a while, explore and develop this technique.

I am with Joel here.

I love the second one, great technique
