Fascinating. I would love to have a chat with this guy! You've captured him extremely well! =D

er schaut echt toll aus! :D
bin schon auf die fortsetzung gespannt :la:

technisch gesehen hast du aber schon mal bessere portraits gemacht... (ich muss auch mal kritisch sein ;P )
ich finde sein kopf hat zu wenig platz, dafür nimmt der mantel sehr viel ein...
NikolasBrummer Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
ja, das mit der technik stimmt. nur darauf kann ich weniger achten in solche momenten ... es ist ja viel zu aufregend. :giggle:
