His Only Friend by dahlig His Only Friend by dahlig
For a while now I wanted to paint a portrait with a sort of sad hint... I chose loneliness.

This piece has challenged me in so many ways. The amount of detail almost drove me crazy, also I have never painted an Asian, nor a child for that matter, so it took a lot, lot, lot of work.

The piece was done entirely in Painter and Photoshop. Two weeks of hard hard work.


Here are some progress shots I captured during painting the face AND the face closeup: [link]

Here are some closeups: [link]

Here are 3 refs which really helped me in the stylization: [link]

this made me so sad, because you can see the sadness in his eyes, behind the anger. and i like the contrast of how angry he looks, and how strong he sits, but right where his fingers rest on that kitten, you see his gaurd drop slightly... you did so well on this piece i loved it!!
