A New Perspective by nataliebeth A New Perspective by nataliebeth
Okay, please don't be annoyed with me posting this upside down, but personally I preferred this perspective to the normal one.

This is something that started off as a sketch in my book. I wanted to draw a mans face, and with the help of my dad, I was able to perfect it slightly. I then scanned it into the computer and spent 6 or 7 hours painting it today. The colour scheme changed 4 times. :giggle:
Oh and for the shirt I actually put on my school top and kept running back and forth from the bathroom so I could draw it. :XD:

:bulletgreen: 9 hours
:bulletgreen: GIMP 2.6.7
:bulletgreen: No refs (although I think the hair was inspired by the gorgeous ben barnes ;))
:bulletgreen: Computer mouse (that died half way through T_T)

Thankyou so much for looking, I'd appreciate any faves and or comments. ^^

:glomp:

I almost kinked my neck trying to twist it enough to see the painting right-side :laughing: but i like the whole up-side-down perspective its interesting and cool!! The hair does look like Ben Barns - thats the first name that popped in my head actually!!

As for the painting it's gorgeous!! the eyes are so intense and fierce!! and all the running helped the shirt looks really good - ur da digital painting queen!!! :hug:

yes you must have - but i think its mostly the hair and some what the shape of his face that makes it look like him!! I agree with that he is handsome ;)

no prob hun - oho we do i wholeheartedly agree - umm i can call u kleines Genie or Engels-augen or Edelstein or if you want anything else - you pick and you can call me anything you want - and Oh my lord of the rings you didnt just say that - you just made my whole year :tighthug: and honey if im the female Da Vinci then you have far surpassed him in talent and creativity and genius!!! :glomp:

This is amza-za-za-zing! This is crazy good--please keep making more lovely works of art. I also like the interesting dynamic of the picture.
He looks a bit like Johnny Depp mixed with Brad Pitt mixed with Ben Barnes. Excellent work!

Oh... jisses you made me go all excited again when I saw this!
And I have to say... I'm already married to Jilly but can I marry you too? Can I? ~ :heart:
Cuz... GAAHSOIEHGAEKLBKUEBKUEWA!!!!!!! Or something slightly more coherent - It's so awesome O_o
I thought this was a portrait of a celebrity xD But no, I was wrong... and that made everything ten triple times more cooler!!! xD
You, ma sweet cheesecake, will NEVER stop surprise me! First the fantasy-colourful-doll-looking girls and now you made this guy all by yourself. What is next? A detailed spaceship?
Eheh I actually turned it around to study it more but I like this perspective ^^ It doesn't bother me at all.
Lol I don't know what to say xD You created a handsome good looking guy there! His skin tone is perfect and it match his brown wavy hair and red lips, also the purple shirt ^^ He looks handsome ;3 Is he romantic? I bet he is! Oh x'''D He also reminds me of... a stableman who flirts with the girls! Don't you agree? :3
And also, I think this looks more realistic O_o Wow. You think my imagination is better? Look at yours! <3

Does he have a name? Seriously, you could make your own characters! That would be so cool!

Uhhuh thats what im talking about. :icondivaplz: Haha yes.. Ive drawn alot of women and hardly any men, well ive drawn lots of bill, but not of other men, so i thought it was time to try my hand at something a little different and the picture goes past his neck... which was a challenge. XD

Hahahah welll you seee.. I kinda watched prince caspian on thursday so i think he may have been inspired by ben barnes and his charcter, which was kinda an accident, but all the same...

Dawww you are going to make me go crazy with loveliness... :iconravegwahplz:
