a portrait of jude law by kayne a portrait of jude law by kayne
This is practice with my new WACOM.
I've always loved the photo of Jude Law that I used as a reference for this, has a classic quality. I wanted to emphasis that with the wallpaper (the only part I cloned, all the rest I rendered properly)

Took about 8+ hours but I had to restart a few times because painter was not saving RIFF files well.

Sh*t you're amazing, that's why I watch you and why I have to keep telling myself that it's not a photograph. Wonderfully well done, mate.

Kayne, I love what you've put together here... I have a wacom tablet but I haven't actually gotten a chance to learn how to get comfortable with it in retouching. I almost feel that, having never really *done* anything that requires me to sketch or use a pen for this kind of work, it is not as intuitive for me to use it for retouching.

Painters and artists probably find it relatively natural, but as of now it's a bit stifling for me to use that thing!

Great work. I love the shadow and the meticulous shading you do, adds a lot to the final image.

fragilemuse-org Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2005

i lovvve the colours here, my fav!
the wallpaper in the background is drooly :P, i want some of it in my room, but australia is shit for decent vintage-style wallpaper.

anyways, only thing i could scrutinise is the shadow on the right hand side of his face: maybe put a bit more detail in it, particularly near the eye. I find that with shadows, while they can be very dark, still contain lots of information, and sometimes magazines/photos block that out unfortunately.
Still, this is a really good effort, and i think the hand is perfect, looks very real. The hair is very commendable also.
