.: Jared Leto :. by kristymariethomas .: Jared Leto :. by kristymariethomas
Finished at last! Far too many hours - so don't even ask.

Happy Birthday Nicolien! `Cataclysm-X The big 2-0! And I'm only one day late.

*****************

I'm really happy with how it turned out, so if you don't like it, then please go look at something you do. I worked on it far too long to listen to what you don't like about it.

Thank you.

And for those of you who do like it, thank you! Your support means the world to me.

My, what 4th or 5th digital portrait??? Done in Photoshop Elements. For wips see my gallery.

And Happy New Year!

Holy Cow! Kudos to you, my friend. I've only recently begun to digitally paint photos and you have clearly overshot what I thought was possible. Absolutely incredible :+fav: You deserved so much more credit for this than you got!

Thanks so much! I think I picked a bad photo of him to paint. If I were to do it all over again, I'd pick a better pose, but I'm glad you can appreciate what I was able to accomplish, because, yeah, I'll admit, I was disappointed...not too much love for this. :( lol... I haven't painted another portrait since this one, but maybe I'll get back on the wagon someday. It's a lot of work to paint from scratch. Have fun and enjoy it. ;)
