Clint Eastwood is a household deity in my home. Doing tight pixelwork, like trying to capture a likeness at this size is when pixeling is the most fun!

 Edit: did some minor fixes after some critique from my dad who is a fellow Eastwood admirerer. Edit 2: MASSIVE overhaul after Chistoball's great edit, also looked up some better references.

Amazing. Except when I zoom too much, looks like he has severe hypertropia, but the rest is perfect.

While I see what you're saying in that the old one had a sort of ''comic book charm'' I am much more pleased with this one overall  I think it has tons more volume and the likeness is much, much better. And I would never go back to what I myself consider an inferior version. I do however take to heart what critique you have and will continue to work on this.

For me the old one was a run of the mill pixeled face ( very similar to my samurai piece ) it was very flat in places and while 'stylish' failed at many levels. The new edit however has helped me understand so many things and I will be a better artist for it.

I sincerely prefer the old version. I honestly find it more precisely pixelled. I agree that Christoballs' edit is gorgeous, just like yours were, but I consider his version a "style shift" (since yours looked more like a cartoon and Christoballs' was more to a realistic drawing). This newer version isn't as accurate as the other ones - he looks like he's cockeyed, and the shading in some parts (like his right eyelid, his left cheek and some others) is a little "inconsistent". I mean, I think that the final composition somehow lost the harmony and charm the old one had.

Please, don't take this as a negative comment. I didn't comment on your older piece because I didn't have anything relevant to say, but I really loved it. And that's why I say: Keep that one!

Yo,

great re-work :) I'd pull in his left cheekbone/left side of his face a bit more like in Christoballs' edit but it's looking very good as-is.

Wow! Fantastic edit Chris! :O It's almost scary how good you've gotten at pixel portraits! All your observations seems accurate (esspecially the nosejob you gave him was an eye-opener!), I'll play around with it some more over the week! Thanks a bunch for the edit & input! Damn that edit is clever, solves so many things i struggled with.

I like this because it reminds me of your Samurai piece, but it doesn't look like Clint!  I haven't watched The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, but I've looked around and tried to to get a better likeness:

Notes:
-the nose could do with more volume

-the ear seems quite close to the face, which squashes the face; it also seems a little low

-the neck seems short

I hope it helps :)

aw. I much preferred the blue sky.  gave a hint that he was out there in one of those nice wild west landscapes with a clear blue sky.  The portrait looks great either way.

Good call skamo! Much easier on the eyes!

Fantastic. I think I would prefer it with a browner background though.

 Good "The Good" . Bad joke  e.e

His signature 'frown' has been captured very nicely.  The colours fit the subject as well.

Crap, you beat me to this one.  looks great.
