Thanks so mich Fabio
Thank you for the vote.
Happy to hear Ivan.
Some of your best tonal work by a long shot. Fantastic work all around Jakob.
I really love the soft red. It reminds me of a well loved garment - one that is cared for well, but perhaps has lost some of the original intense reds after a few washes. The age spots upon the man’s head and few wisps of hair are great touches that help give him more life too :)
Ah that is so interesting! Thanks. Actually, the cloth was so hard. And mostly I tried to not have it pink and ‘washed out’ - but bright and pure. Well-maintained and cared for - even if old. But I like this too. Happy accidenta. Thank you.
I don’t think it is pink - it definitely reads as red! Just a bit softer. My red shirts are still very red, but they no longer bleed dye if they get wet. It isn’t a bloody red either. It has the well-maintained part for sure. I think balancing the well-maintained but also used is tough, and you got it.
Nice painting Jakob!! Best, Mariano
Thank you Mariano :)
A very balanced palette. Bravo!
Thank you so much! It is a limited pallette for sure. I suppose I could have used some more colour harmony :)
Excellent. I really like the face and the most particularly the hair!! Painting is of very high quality. Gold!!
Thank you so much. I actually quite enjoyed the hair - and it was fun to flick those tiny hairs on. So I am glad it ‘worked’.
This is so full of peace and harmony, Jakob. A beautiful bust. Love the thin hair and the silk Material defintion. Gold and Editors choice from me!
Thanks so much! Honoured to hear.
gold very good

Peaceful, harmony, well balance! Congrats!
Thanks so much! Glad you liked it
Amazing paint work!
Greatly appreciated John!!
Cracking job dude. You have nailed the red material of that shirt. I love all the little details in the skin as well, the blemishes, the hair and that lighting!
Amazing mate, gold and Editors
Thanks so much mate. I think the balance (and harmony) is the trick with this. Keeping everything in tune. A lot of back and forth.
in love with this bust !
painting comes out beautifully and enhances the figure !
Thanks a lot Marc. I think with a beauty like this, it pretty much paints itself. So much emotion in the sculpt.
Great work, love it!!!
Thanks so much dude! Hope you are still painting :)
Thanks so much!
Love this bust, the spirit of it and the freehand on the back is great! Great job!
Thank you so much Denniz!
