Beauty of Uncertainty by ErDexie Beauty of Uncertainty by ErDexie
Jake Gyllenhaal. I wanted to do a realistic portrait of a man, and I loved Prince of Persia and October Sky, plus I use his face as a reference for one of my characters, and he's cute. Do I need any more reasons? : )

Done in three days, with a wacom graphire 4 tablet, photoshop CS2, and a reference. I used the guidelines tip from ellastasia's Female Portrait--Quick Simple tutorial: So genius! I can't believe I didn't think of that!
Also, static effect by adonihs, in his tutorial: [link]

Wow, very impressive! As a fellow fan of Mr Gyllenhaal, I am totally transfixed by his gaze that you brilliantly, seamlessly captured. The grayscale also expresses his stylishness, in turn a great symbol of his acting talents. I could go and on... ;D

Thank you! I worked like, forever on getting his eyes right. You don't notice it, but he has really big eyes. :/
The photo was in black and white, and I thought it was very striking, which was a factor in choosing it.

<3 the hamster avie, btw.

:) Yes, I did notice Jake's naturally large eyes, especially when he's being serious. It's an attractive aspect of him nevertheless, and you captured this beautifully. The hair has a nice fluidness too.

Aww thank you. ^^

Well, the tutorial I mentioned in the Artist's comments really helped with that. But DUDE. He is so hard to draw. He has these huge lamp-like eyes and a weird face shape. Keep on trying!

Yeah yeah, i noticed :) But I started another one which is much much better than the last one. In this new one he's got big eyes (they really are huge O.O) and his face is a bit weird. I mean the shape.

Yeah, he's got real unique face shape, but he's still good-looking for some reason.
