    This portrait is spraying with opakes or transparents colors?

    You know I just realized that this is Christopher Walken if it ain't it is his twin.
    I will have to agree this is the best of your work so far and I am glad I have been able to watch the progression of your learning from Dru.

    Its obviously been awhile since i've seen Mr Walkin cos he looks like he got old all of a sudden. Thats why i thought it was maybe Mr Hopkins :D

    You've outdone yourself with this one and i hope you're going to finish him off totally.

    It's Dru's term for making an opaque paint, which is a paint that goes to a certain value and no further, for accuracy in colour matching

    You know I'm a total reproductive organ I have been using my printer like it's my best friend! Never thought to use the scanner on it :( please tell me what the hell has been going on in my head???!!!! This version is pretty close to what I done, its more subtle but more detailed, I always use the iPhone camera for some reason! Sorry to repost but I had to! IMG_1657.JPG

    I all I say is WOW! the level of detail in it looks like you have really paid attention in class and did the home work too.
