It was a little order for Matriax. He is working in a new game. I took 3 hours and a half (approx) to finish it.

You can see the progress on this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHGcFCP43-0

Very nice. I actually wasn't too depressed by my own sense of inferiority before I read the bit about you only needing 3,5 hours to finish this. So... that's nice.

Nice! I see a fish on his forhead, and I can't unsee..

Wow, great execution.

Thank you cure :)

Nice. AA is a little heavy along the jawline and a few other places, otherwise pretty tight. Always good to see more realistic portraiture around here.

This is very good, because Matriax told me to do something alike that piece, I didn't know who was the autor of that piece untill now, because at first, I got the picture as a reference from my client. Cure is really nice as a pixel artist, my respect.

I did another face, I didn't copy any photo because I take longer if do that and we estimated a couple of hours (or 3) to do it lol
You can see on the video, at first the face looked like an older man (someone compared with Doom, for example)

Thanks for your comment!

Very good, but I think that the part right above the eyebrows is too bright and the tip of the nose is too dark, which makes it look flat.

By the way, this lighting scheme (the forehead, especially) and his expression heavily remind me of this piece: http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/68875.htm

Great portrait and very interesting preview.
