So, yeah, I'm also one of them wanting to know how on earth you could paint something like this with *acrylics*. I've painted with acrylics all my life, and I could never get it to look anything remotely like this.
Hi JW-Jeong....This is Mahesh(61) from India in praise of your so controlled and fully detailed & extremely digital painting of Sir Ian McKellen....It is such a great depiction which my eyes can't believe it. My young son (20) is very much impressed by your unparallel art. Actually he is also studying in Fine Arts College and has achieved the art in Pencil and charcoal. Now he is thinking to start with the colour. But when he saw your minute observation of the face-lines and skin-dots, he became stunned and showed me the Face of Sir Ian McKellen. What's your age ,young man ? I wish God may shower on you with all HIS choicest blessings..You are just wonderful and I am speechless !!! Keep try to contact or reply me if it suits you...= Mahesh
