Purely awesome. My favorite Pirates Of The Carribean character. Yes, even above Jack Sparrow.
The detail is perfect, and I just love how it just blends together well. I love the way you did the goatee too.
Lets just say from the thumbnail alone I knew it was him. That's talent right there, on your part of course! I wish this was like dA so I could give you a :iconlachoirplz: or even an :ahoy: And yes I've seen your dA page but missed this for some UNFORGIVABLE REASON! Continue being awesome.
I love the realism, and the expression shown through the face is superb. What medium did you use? It looks like oil paint.
Its digital :) But I tried to give it a traditional feel with the roughness etc.
Very creative! Bravo!
I don't know enough about art to 'judge', but this looks really good in my opinion, captures a realistic face, is it someone you've seen?
