Tennant - Doctor Who by Olooriel Tennant - Doctor Who by Olooriel
A more detailed version of my latest David Tennant portrait, and I added the Doctor's suit. The older version can be found here: [link]

I didn't like a lot of things about it, particularly the eyes, so I worked on it for... a looong time in Photoshop. No idea how long, really. As I was done with the face and adding the suit, my boyfriend came in and asked "Are you painting over a photo?!" As if I would, lol. Nope, all painted.

This is really great, but I have to say that you made this too symmetrical. His nose is actually not that straight. But everything else is awesome! Love!

Nice work. Honestly, the only thing I can say is that his jawline could be a bit slimmer; I'm pretty sure it would be nearly identical then. Nice detail on the skin in particular.

You're probably right, the shadow on his cheeks should have been darker to make his face appear more slim, but it was a difficult part to paint and I might have given up on it too soon.

Nice work and yes I can also see the updates on this. For me personally there is still a problem with the eyes. They're a fraction too big and the nose could do with being a tadge longer. But these are proportional issues that can be fixed, if you choose to do so.

It's something that will come in time and with practice. [link]

Thanks! Hm, I'm not sure about the proportional issues, the man's *got* quite big eyes... I'll have another look, but I don't think I'll continue to fiddle around with this one, as it already took forever as is.

Very nice. I like the detail on the face and the comparative roughness of suit. It's a really cool effect.

I'm really glad you like the effect, as this contrast was what I wanted to achieve, but I wasn't too sure I succeeded :)

Very nice, he's immediately recognizable.

Still a few small proportion/placement issues, but it's already better than I could do.

Bravo!
