Salvatore Esteban by nathie Salvatore Esteban by nathie
This is a fictional character from my story "Der Schwarze Ritter" which you can read here in german in a subfolder.
He is a pianist in the spanish symphony orchestra, and is pretty compatible to a certian red haired guy.

I used ca. 5 different references for lightning, hair, fabric texture etc from my own stock.
Painted in PS, ca. 20 hours.

Ich komme bei deinen Sachen aus dem Staunen nicht raus...der Grad an Realismus ist absolut fantastisch! Und dieses Werk wirkt irgendwie besonders real, als würde er sich jeden Moment bewegen. Übrigens finde ich, dass er wirklich wie ein Musiker aussieht - irgendwie merkt man ihm das an.

Wow this one looks fantastic (just like your other works) I especially love that smile, it surely can steal your heart in seconds. I also love how detailed his clothes there I can feel the touch of the material under my fingertips!

Amazing work )

Ah, Tori! :D :aww: For a very strange reason, even If I had no idea who he was, I could sense that he is a musician. :)

LOL compatible :XD: :P

When I first saw him, I thought that it was a photo, that realistic it painting is! Love the texture you have done on clothes and the color of his eyes. It's very detailed in every aspect and Tori is a very handsome man. :love:

Excellent portrait, Very beautifully done! :love:

It was actually easier as it looked. I started with black, then added wih blue and a special brush those stripes, then I used my "dust" brush. :)

Ich habe mir früher auch immer die Bilder von anderen Zeichnern angeguckt (damals noch in Form von Artbooks, einen Comp gab es da noch nicht) und mir gemaus dasselbe gesagt. "Woah, so gut zeichnen können..." dann habe ich mich hingesetzt und gemacht. Damals alles noch mit Acryl, Airbrush etc. ;)

Aber ein gewisses Talent muss schon vorhanden sein. Und Geduld, die ich nicht habe. Unstet ist ein Begriff oder.
