The aim of this was to create an old timey portrait for use as a texture within a friends game level. I agreed to do it because i liked the idea of painting a big moustache on his rotting weasel face.

This is what one would probably call a cheat portrait, its a paintover job, which while feels ‘wrong’ in the grand sceme of things- sure sped things up- this only took about 4 or 5 hours. Not bad for something which will be resized to a 256 texture anyways.

Its not perfect, there are bits of sloppyness, especially on the clothing- but with the nature of this being resized and having texture thrown on top to make it aged my priority was purely on getting the face and hair right.

Middle thumb is the original photo. right is the textured, left is the pure version.
