This is a digital portrait I did for the anniversary of Mr. Henson's death, together with his most famous friend.

Amazing!

Matsuemon responds:

Thank you very much! I'm doing a digital painting of Swedish Chef in a week or so. That'll be fun =)

Absolutely incredible! The detail is so amazing I almost thought it was real! The virtual world keeps getting better and better <3 *Thumbs up* :D

Matsuemon responds:

Thank you very much!! I think doing Kermit was my favorite part =) The wrinkles in Mr. Henson's face took some time to get right. They still give me trouble. And his sweater was difficult, too. That was the one part I felt wasn't up to par with the rest of the painting.

so much detail in the hair and beard, its very realistic! and the face and cheeks are also done perfectly. good job!

Matsuemon responds:

Thank you so much! I really wanted to get this one right, because Henson is such a legend and a personal hero of mine. Interestingly enough, the hair and beard were among the easier parts of it =)
