Simon Baker by marinamaral Simon Baker by marinamaral
1 - I'm addicted to The Mentalist.
2 - Hello! xD I've been away for a few days busy with my studies, but decided to return to practice this weekend.

in this piece I tested a new technique to make skin texture, b/c with the brushes I'm a crap.

I used the following images for this:

and for the background:

+ soft brush, hard brush, texture brush and smudge tool in some spots

I hope you enjoy! xx

The only reason I gave 3.5 and 3 stars for vision and originality is because it was done straight from photo reference without any personal touches. That being said, what is here is very well done. I strive for this quality and have yet to achieve the realism you have. Please don't be offended by my negative marks. The nose is slightly large, which stands out to me immediately. His eyes and hair are flawless. If you were only going for technique on skin, hair, and eyes then you have done your job. I would have like to see the shirt finished and maybe some more texture/interest in the background.
What do you think?

Well done! Only thing I reckon might need a little more work is the lighting on the nose, looks a little flat compared to the reference photo [link]

There would be no denying who this was even if you hadn't introduced it. Really like the expression in the eyes and though the face is a little too smooth in certain areas the overall composition is great. Makes me feel that I should finish my unfinished version now. thanks for the inspiration

You are totally welcome and don't let anyone detract from what you have done. Criticism is good if it is constructive - take a look at the attempt I made for instance - it still has a long way to go

It's so well done that it makes it painful to say anything negative. I think the nose is a little too large, but just a bit. Otherwise, could be a photograph!
