Reminds me a bit of the portrait of Dorian Gray. It has a lot of life in it. It has a soul. I'm almost afraid of how real he looks. :D
Amazing work! :)

Congrats on getting a DD. I do like this portrait. I like the shirt folds and the hair the best. It looks so realistic.

lol, jk, this is amazing :D I thought it was a photograph! Love that you included the little almost invisible wisps of hair, and the lines on the face are very realistic :)
Seriously amazing :D

what a great expression! And the technique is so tactile, especially the glow of the eyes and skin.

It feels as though he could REALLY see me... it's kind of creepy, but I cannot deny how realistic this painting looks. It does have a soul, not many manage to imbibe their paintings with life like you've done here...

Thanks for your support. I've just uploaded a video of the painting process to YouTube [link] - towards the end of the video the final painting zooms out from a close up of the eyes. If you watch in HD and pause it should be good enough. If not, let me know, and I'll see what I can do.
