Micah




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.

Do you use Painter? I had no idea you also worked digitally. Can I quote Dillon?..."This is awesome."

THAT IS DIGITAL!? when i first came and saw the post i thought it was a photo of your son and i thought booorrringgg. but man that is way cool! you should teach the digital painting class, or do a workshop in the summer or soomthing. comon you know you want to.

This is great stuff. I am a lot more of a painterly painter but I would like to slow down and get detail like that sometimes. Good Job
