Did this today as a study, I love this guy's face as well as his sense of humor.

Don't share your love of Jack (I'm just too old), but you certainly "nailed" him. Superb work!

Hi Jason, this is amazing, I'd love to figure out how you get so much life into a study like this! The colours are so real and I love the way some parts are so detailed and others so loose. Plus you've totally captured the guy.

Best,

Neil

Thank you guys, Neil, what I focus on most after the anatomy of the person is the relationship between values. I can't paint this fast yet with oils, hopefully one day I will be able to. Digital painting helps speed the process a lot for me, much easier to blend colors and no clean up. Still, I prefer oil painting above all mediums.

This is really great! I saw The Pick of Destiny last night. Pretty funny. I saw on your site that you did some work for that movie. What was it exactly? I've tried Jack Black before, I was going to have another go, but I think now I'd be influenced too much by this painting. Maybe I'll wait a while.

Hey Dan, your Jack is pretty good, the likeness is lost a bit, I think the relationship between his eyes nose and mouth is what's throwing it off, still a good take at the guy.

I haven't yet seen the movie, but I've seen my drawings on a t.v. commercial for the movie. I did two simple drawings of Kyle Gass, they hang in frames in Kyles apartment, that's all I know. They (the movie people) wanted me to do something very simple and purposely not really that good. They wanted the drawings to look like Kyle, but not be too good of quality, like a street artist did them really quick. I spent only a half an hour on each, and I purposely drew things off a bit. There's one drawing of Kyle rocking out on his guitar, and another one of him as a knight riding a horse, with a castle behind him. They wanted him to have long hair in both drawings.

Kyle loved them, so I mailed them to him as a gift.

haha, that's pretty cool! You'll understand the long hair thing when you see the movie.

Yeah, I was a little disappointed with my Jack. I think I concentrate on the photo too much, I need to work on the facial anatomy. Anyway, good job, I'd love to see you do a good version of Kyle.
