actually, a continuance of the Leon theme, but now a closeup with him putting on his shades, to sleep on the chair. Ever vigilant, he knows he may have to wake to danger at any time.

I don't really know what this is. I used the seurat brush, but didn''t know what I was really doing. Still thinking of the scene wassomthing did with his but in any old way. I won't be useing this brush again. The only reason it even looks halfway decent is because it on top of a really accurate realistic painting.

Liked the image but would have liked more contrasts.
Hmmm.....perhaps i'm wrong but isn't him a character of a movie...i can't remember the title, nor the artists name, i watched it in the tube. It's about a guy who is a professional killer that encounters a little girl whose family was killed, they met had some time together and he started to change his character. At the end he was killed by a band, and the girl took with her a plant which the guy always kept as a treasure in a pot, sowed the plant in a firm place and started her life alone?

Greg, I'll bet it looks a lot better when you don't have to view it at a 90 degree angle....:lol: ....I have to agree with Kareen...Deeper contrasts would improve it.

Someone isn't thinking well; the film is Leon in France, and The Professinal in US, so what's not in the post?
Contrast, I disagree, as it goes from almost black to very lite yellow, within a few inches, wha'ts not contrasted? 2. It's basically for play, not worth much effort. I did it in one day, some of mine have taken yrs.

ok, here's the realistic paintin g, the kind where peeps have always told me, hey, that's just a smudged photo. Well, Joel won't let me use those discriptive words in the forum. I cropped the sides to allow for more closeup. I added contrast, in the form of a darker BG. A layer mode might be fun tho. Do you peeps know about, use, those modes, as the can do a lot for any image.

Interesting portrait :)

That's cause he's just an ordinary guy, just another killer for hire, and definitly French.

Very good actually excellent likeness to Leon. I was curious did you get the pixelation from enlarging? Didn't he play the part of a Russian assisan in the movie? Of course I could be thinking of a different movie LOL

No Reds, he lived in Little Italy in NYC, and has a French accence, perhaps, cause he's French. Just watched this again and it holds up to 2005 movies as far as everything. Thank you.

and now for some contrast for Jean or skinny or Sam. Two or three layer modes, with a watercolor script thrown in.

Not for me Greg I prefer the first one :)

I liked the first two. I just thought that it needed some reds to warm the shadow colors up a bit.

Hope you don't mind, I played with the constrast and saturation to show you what I meant.
