Good Things Come To Those Who Wait

I have been working on this one for a while. I had to restrain myself from posting it prematurely just for the sake of posting something. This is a variation of a painting that got excepted in to the Society of Illustrators Student Exhibition in 2005. I would like to think that this the better of the two.

This is a portrait of my friend Jared Miller. His is a great friend and a great artist. I am think of posting a tutorial about realistic observational drawing. It may take a while, but I am sure it will be useful to someone, even if that someone is myself.

This is a portrait of my son, Micah. I tried to incorporate more texture, so that it doesn't look so digital. I think I was successful in achieving a very accurate likeness, but we'll see if it passes the "mommy test". What is the "mommy test"? you ask. The "mommy test" is were the mommy looks at the portrait and can tell who's child it is. Amendment March 7th: Upon showing the previous painting of Micah to my wife she was quick to make some suggestions. I deleted the previous painting from my blog made some minor changes and added this image. Hopefully the small changes will make a difference.
