This is a commission that I like, portraits.
It is a challenge, especially when you do not know the model and have to rely on photographs (where usually the models are posing = not just be themselves) and a quick overview that gives you the customer. That said, a challenge must not only look alike, have to convey that in essence is that person.
This is a commission about a man who will turn 60 years old and his sons want to give him a gift :)
In the final delivery usually I give several versions, although they have asked me; one contains the faces of the portraits with a neutral background and another with the final portrait (personal details, full body, background .. if they have it). I show you all these versions
