great use of that paint brush :) I'm diggin the colors and your really good at a persons profile. I need to take some tips from you <3 it keep it up!
the only thing I slightly dis-like is the detail on the coat itself. other then that I like it!
At first glance, I knew who it was (met him briefly yesterday!) Some of the contrast in the shirt collar and coat (on the left, and uppermost left) looked a little untidy, but the piece as a whole is just striking, especially considering the interface used... it does look so much like actual brushstrokes!
The detailed background and perfectly rendered face, shows dedication and talent. Looks sweet framed too!
Aw, thanks for the feedback. Thinking just in terms of contrast let me notice a bunch of problems I'd sort of felt but not been able to identify, so thank you so much for mentioning it. It was great bumping into you this weekend!
