Re: Robert Duvall as Gus

Hi Cycroft,
I like your portrait! Robert Duvall definitely has a very interesting face to portray and I think you captured the 'western feel'. His right eye is a bit too high compared to his left. He seems to be squinting a bit more with that eye, but they should still be aligned. Apart from that, I think you could still make more out of this portrait by working a bit further on highlights and shadows. Having more contrasts will make it more catchy. For example, you could add some more shadows in the hat and in the folds of the clothing, so the figure stands out from the background. Alternatively, you could make part of the background darker (darker than the skin tone so you'll have a contrast), and in that case the figure will also stand out more from the background. It all depends on the effect you want to achieve. Hope this helps!
Best regards,
~ Hope to see you on my website EdithsArt.com
