Nicely done. Much beter than my work so far. One thing though. All that work and detail in the face and something is lost on the ear. Ears are hard to master for sure. Just offering something to think about. Love the work though.

Thanks for that and yes you are right ears are difficult and not an area I like doing, most of the time I paint ladies where often parts of the ear are covered by hair thank goodness.
Appreciate your comment.

Good looking chappie. You're definitely going to keep peace in the family here. Could be a model in an old cigarette ad in a magazine.

Nice one, Limey-g. You definitely are painting them with an eye to their individual likenesses. I feel like I could spot this guy based on the painting. . . pick him out of a line up as it were. May want to get a job working for the local police dept as a sketch artist doing composites. ;);):rolleyes::rolleyes: Only kidding. . .

Oh crud. I missed the fact that he passed away. Sorry for the joking around at the sentimental purpose behind this pic. And condolences for your family's loss. It is a really nice painting and the resemblance must be striking as you are so good at likenesses.

Not a problem D Akey, i did not make a big thing of him passing and I know it was easily missed.
