Anyway. This is my attempt at a portrait. I'm pretty pleased, it's light years ahead of any of my other attempts. I think it actually looks human. Or maybe it doesn't, but I've been looking at it for too long. It definitely could be better, but to be honest I'm not the most patient person in the world and so I'm giving up.
If you click it, it should go bigger. Can you tell who it is? You get a free hug if you can. Oh, also I think all my paintings look better if you stand further away from the monitor... Ekhm.
Technical note: This is mostly oils. I discovered for certain effects other tools and brushes are waaay easier to use, so I used whatever. For example the background is painted using watercolour brushes.
