IN FULL BLOOM by silentautumnrain IN FULL BLOOM by silentautumnrain
This is the VERY first painting I did in Photoshop and it just went through a MAJOR overhaul and was updated with the newest version on May 30, 2009.

Photo used for reference can be viewed here ---> [link]

The original deviation was more true to the photo reference as his shirt was blue and his hair was rendered exactly as it was in the photo... personally, I like this more softer, natural toned deviation better than the first...

I'm usually not a big fan of Orland Bloom, but this is EXCELLENT. The way you made the eyes makes it look as if you're staring at a photograph.

WONDERFULLY DONE!
Have you done any Hugh Jackman shots...? A shot of him when he did Kate & Leopold would be awesome to see.
Just an idea. :shrug:

I love this! Especially the texture of the hair - it looks so real it makes me wanna reach out and ruffle it XD I love the use of colour on this shirt. You've managed to use so many shades of blue plus the reflective light from the jeans, skin and the lighting and it looks very realistic. I also like way you tackled the facial hair. I'm not sure why but I would expect that to be quite problematic. Although, I wouldn't know; I've never been crazy enough to attempt something like this :D Great work, anyway.

That's a great painting, looks so photorealistic I first thought it was a photo. The face looks very thoughtful and expressive and I adore the way you've done the hair. My only (minor) complaint would be the hand, it looks somehow plastic and doll-like. I think it could use more shading and texture and a skin tone with less red, but I'm no expert. Thumbs up for the great work!

I agree with you on the hand. I think I sorely neglected to take my time on that part. I may go back and redo that some but thank you for the wonderful comment and the critique!
