Max by kafine Max by kafine
So this is supposed to be `maxwell-heza. I made a lot of mistakes but I am not entirely displeased with it. I think the photo makes it look a bit odder than IRL.

From a photo that she took, with her permission.

Acrylic on canvas board.

Incidentally, I take commissions of portraits like this. Drop me a line if you'd like details :)

It looks wonderful -- great tones, spot on texture. What prompted me the most to comment was that you used canvas board; I tried that once, and the result was pretty awful for me, but then again I was younger and impatient, still am lol. Anyway, exceptional work and congrats on the DD.

What I do with the canvas board is apply a couple of layers of paint with a pallet knife so it goes into the grooves and reduces the grain a bit. I find it pretty convenient to work with, mainly because it's cheap XD

What a great technique! I'll have to look into that because it IS cheap; thanks man!

Now I'm curious to see the photo! xD

But that would probably ruin the magic. It takes a lot of guts to let people compare your art to the reference.

She looks... real. Like a real person that you'd see in real life, not just some perfect model on TV. That makes it more interesting to me.
