Reading a magazine, I saw some photos by Jan Banning of "jugun ianfu". Terrible stuff. I decided to practice colour and lighting by trying to copy Dominggas's portrait.
You can see what you can do with this, or maybe start something new instead. I like to recommend people start something new rather than mess with old work.
I really appreciate your comment, Mathias! I wasn't expecting a little surge of interest in my gallery, since I haven't had that much time to pixel or post anything here.
I'm not happy with the pixel clusters anymore though, so I might revise this!
This is great! Colors and everything. The pixel tech is interesting to look at. No shading in the hair and no shoulders (like an old school bust statue) give this more of a stylized appeal than imply an attempt at strict realism. Good choices you made doing this.
For some reason when I look at this, I see an old Christopher Walken.
Definitely your best work. It's quite realistic and the colors are fantasticly used.
One of the most realistic portraits I've seen on PJ. Kudos
Fantastic portrait. Wonderful detail.
I am in love with your use of colour. Those highlights are absolutely delightful, they really set the mood. This could be a painting and it would still be beautiful. 5/5!
Thanks guys! The reason why I didn't add a shade to the hair was because what I was focussing on was the face; if I were to have done a "full" portrait, the hair would have had some white and grey highlights and the woman would have shoulders and a shirt. I appreciate the feedback! :)
Great use of colors, but personally I'd like to see one more darker color in the hair.
this is really awesome, love it.
Excellent. Man, I gotta get into the habit of doing this kind of stuff.
That blue background helps this piece out. Some have problems with plain-looking things, but it contrasts with the subject really well.
best work in your gallery by far (imo)
great colors, great detail
