What can I say?

Not enough male representation in my gallery I thought, so here is some more testosterone ;)

I saw this amazing reference picture and I just HAD to paint it.
Tried finding who the photographer was, but I know it's from a promotional shoot for LOST.
Ok I stand corrected... it was a promo shoot for The Vampire Diaries :P

I just have to say this guy has some VERY interesting bone-structure! Loving the jaw!

Very proud of this one I have to say :D
Spent a lot of time on it and I tried some new things as far as painting techniques.
Feel this is a step forward again :)

DAT SMIRK. :icondatassplz:

He's the best part of the show by far. I knew it was him instantly from the thumbnail. And I don't mean the actor, I mean the character. So you did a brilliant job capturing that look! :rose: Bravo.

:wow:Wow! I really really like your painting. It's got great detail and it's just incredible how perfectly it all is. It just looks like the original and at the same time it still seems to reflect your own style. Don't know if that makes sense, lol.
Anyway, amazing piece of work! :)
btw, I reeeeally like that you left him shirtless. Haha :love:
