    Self

    I have been using this as a demonstration of how close to real oil can appear in AR. I really like the freshness of the unfinished look and am afraid of making it too muddy if I try to finish it much more. I am also losing my sight so I thought the single eye would indicate that. WHat do y'all think?

Size:  139.5 KBI had to reduce it to 14.5% of its original, so I am afraid much of the detailed brush stroke texture is lost.

    Sure, why not. Overall it looks pretty good. Sorry that you're losing your vision. Well, it's good to know you can zoom in and see details if you need to, and zoom back out to get an overview.

    It's a nice job though. I have no doubt it looks like you since things seem to be well placed for a portrait. Also liking the color. Good one.

    Looks good to me, it has the right amount of detail. Your brushstrokes and use of colors do give it an oil painting feel.
    Great job on your portrait.

    Your oil painting portrait has a very good "real" look.
    I too, like artrage for its many choices of the freshness
    and your painting really brings this to us. Looking forward
    to seeing more of your work.
