I really enjoyed painting this young man. He is really a sweet teen. I have a friend with a teen age boy and I was looking for teen agers for reference. She showed up with around a dozen. It was actually really great and I got a lot of great reference material. I think it fits the topic nicely since I went really cool with a lot of the coloration. This is oil on board.
I have been practicing painting in photoshop and have been reworking this image that was originally painted. I still have quite a bit to do on it, but it's been interesting. I have moved to some other photoshop painted images from scratch too. Thought I'd just show how far I got on this rework.
