A close-up of : fav.me/d5an1k4 so that you can see each and every teeny tiny detail....

I don't even want to think about how many dots went into this...

This is a portrait of the singer Gotye. The reference image is a screen capture from his music video "Somebody that I Used to Know", which you can find here www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UVNT4….

This is fantastic! This looks like it took you forever, it's hurting my head thinking about how may tiny little dots are in this piece. :wow:

Haha yeah, this one was probably the piece that took me the longest, I sort of stopped counting hours after a certain point >.< And I still don't really consider this one done, I'd really like to intensify the dark parts to up the contrast but I figure that I'd let it sit for a while haha!

This is just beautiful. I love the colours here as well as the texture, and the expression of the face :)

Thank you so much! It was a blast to do, and I especially liked messing around with the different shades of green and brown and using string to add texture!

Amazing job!
The details are breathtaking, and I really like the colors you used in the piece!
Not a single dot is out of place, and the face is done really well!

I do think making the dots, especially around the lips, a touch darker just so that they can be seen better.

But overall, this is just a really fantastic piece! Great work!

Thank you so much!

Yeah, I do agree with you. I think there were kind of two problems with the lips. In the reference picture I was using they were pretty much invisible: [link] so I was trying to make them as dark as I possibly could without straying too far from the reference. Plus working with such a multi-colored and textured background makes any light shading almost invisible.

Overall with this piece, like I feel that it's complete, but I could probably keep working on it forever. I bet I could keep adding dots, darkening things, battle against the background, etc etc but I just felt like it was at a good place to stop. If I do decide to re-work it at any point though, I'll keep this in mind and touch up the lips a little bit more. Thank you so much for your helpful comment!
