Ray Liotta: Quirk by DJCoulz Ray Liotta: Quirk by DJCoulz
8D I drew ray Liotta again! XD Yay!

I love the picture this is based off of for a ref. It's such a cool picture!!!


See I really wanted to draw this cause Ray Liotta has this little quirk, like a nervous reaction, where he rubs his eyebrow and grins. And It's down right adorable! I love Ray liotta and he has an adorable face. Atleast I think so.

His face is so cool! HE'S GOT AN ADORABLE LITTLE KITTY MOUTH! XD

I'm retarded. Only I would spend this much time on a picture of Ray Liotta being adorable.


AND FUCK SUEDE! Love to wear it, but NOT TO DRAW!


Started around 7 PM ended at almost Midnight.

FFFFFFF.
I've been following your art on this account for a while now, albeit silently XD But although this isn't one of your newest pieces, it amazes me. Every single time I see it.
Like his hair, and the suede (I can't imagine how long that must have taken :XD:) and just pretty much every little wrinkle, shadow... Every little everything is in the right place.
Even on the detail shots it still manages to look exactly like a photo :'D If I didn't know better I totally wouldn't believe you when you said you drew this.

:XD: Looking at my realism then at yours is... yeah. LOL. How do you blend the skin tones so well? D8

x3 Thank you so much. I'm glad you like it, this is one of my favorites to. Mostly cause I like finding out little quirks people have and Ray Liotta's is just so adorable and I couldn't believe someone took a pic of him doing it! Haha.

And Yeah blending skin tones is pretty difficult... one thing I've started to do is not use the smudge tool as a crutch, I spend more time layering colors ontop of each other over and over and only blend when absolutely necessary. Also higher opacity on your brushes makes a sharper pic, but is much harder to get use to and master.

Also, I had a bit of a head start cause I use to oil paint when I was like ten. And oil painting is just like portraits on Photo Shop. Maybe you could look up tutorials, or maybe even buy a portrait painting book at Micheal's or something. I think they could do a world of good 8]

Thanks so much again for the comment, I'm glad you like it, and I appreciate the comment, even if it's late XD I really do appreciate it! :heart:

Haha yes, a godsend X3

Oooh right! I tend to use sold blobs of colour then try to bleand the 'seams' and that doesn't work out so well...
I wouldn't have been trusted with oil paints when I was 10! XD
Awesome, i'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the tips :D

And No problem! Just had to voice how much I loved the picture :)

This looks sooo much like a photograph; and not just in the thumbnail, as is usually the case, but the full view too. And only about five hours? Jeez, you got skillz.

Oh wow! That's incredible.

I love the detail and how the colours have come through. Very amazing work. It's so natural and not stiff which digital work can come off as at times.

Also you doing Ray Liotta being adorable is XD amazing

Thank you, that's what I was going for, I like pictures that are more natural and seem to have some sort of movement to them.

It was taking me a while to figure out what I would compare the feel of your art too, and I think I finally have it. Your art has the feel of an unstaged photo, a candid shot. That's very impressive, and it brings a real life to your art. I hope to one day be able to do that in my art as well.

Keep up the incredible work, I can't wait to see what you do next.

I'm glad you think so, that's what I like drawing. Things people either don't see, don't want to see, or just don't notice all together. Like a quirk, or a line on someone face that gets covered up with makeup or photo shop, or when someone smiles for a photo and looks ugly. it's all what I find beautiful about people and art.

Don't sweat the small stuff but enjoy the little things.~
