Very close likeness. The moustache is even more photo-realistic than the reference (surprise)!

Check on his left jaw. Its too high and sharp-angled, making his face wider than should be. The omission of the "V" in the hairline above his left eye also contributed to the effect.

In the photo, his eyes also squints more.

Wonderful painting, Jean...don't you find family harder to do than someone you don't have any attachment to. :clap: :thumbsup: :clap: :wave:

That is a wonderful likeness Jean:thumbsup: the only thing I can notice is that the left eye, as we look at the portrait could be a little longer. In the photo the outer corner of his eye is near the end of his eyebrow.

A very good likeness Jean. Family is very dificult to do, because it's usually all about likeness.

I like this a lot, Jean. Did you consider rotating the picture a bit to have the subject sit up straight? I've done that a lot and sometimes the results are better than the original photo.

Ok here's the update :) fixed his eye, tried to darken the bottom of the mustache , and Joel I ran the soft stump blender around the edges (is that what you mean? )

Jean, the edges do look much better. Great job on the whole portrait!!!:)
