    Amazing! Truly amazing!
    I'm stunned at the details, this is almost leaning towards hyperrealism .

    I think i even have to be so bold to say that this might be the best painting i've seen here yet .


    Take care.

    I need some critique, I have made a few alterations to the shoulders to make the angle different to how the photographer took the shot, he was looking down on Charlie whereas I would prefer the straight on look. I have done the edit on a copy so I can change my mind. What do you think have I taken to much of the chest away.

    Christine, when I look at the painting the fact that the right side is not finished or does not go to the edge makes his chest look to thin but if you move him over to the right or finish his back then he looks fine your work is outstanding.

    Hi Christine as I see it as you take some of the bulk away you have given it a younger appearance compared to the original where the spread of the chest gave it that mature look.
    Its a case of either is fine depends on what you are looking for.

    Thank you justjean, Geoff for your input,

    I think you are right it does make the chest less bulky on the right, I think I will continue it to the edge of the screen. The reason I finished with the straight edge was so it could be cropped to 8x10, but thinking about it, it will be much better to fill the frame to allow Dave the photographer to crop as he wishes. I will also put back a little fur on the left to give the look of more bulk and muscle.

    I am going to have a break for an hour and go back to it later hopefully with a fresher look. I have been working on it since early this morning altering and adding bits here and there.

    Very good work, this is the type of works that I like, because are like mine. Perhaps you must review the shadows, but for me it's very good work. Congrats!
