I started painting this on Monday and finished last night.  Two-three hours a night, so about 10-15 hours total.  It's my first digital painting so I'm very pleased with it.  Done in PSP9 (mouse, no tablet).  I used a reference pic here for colour and shape.  Obviously I don't own the original image.  I can't actually recall where I got it from.  David Tennant is also copyright to David Tennant, I don't own him either (more's the pity).

And here's a sneak preview of my current project, a portrait of Romola Garai (about 5-6hrs in, half way through).

Thanks very much!  btw when I shouldn't have used the word freehand, but I couldnt think of an alternative, what I meant was it was done with the mouse, rather than actually drawing it with a tablet.  I did use a reference pic to get the proportions right.

Wow, that's amazing!  I thought it was a photo too.  Great job!

I also wish I had a copyright for David Tennant... Wink

Holy Cow.
Thought it was a picture!

When I looked at what It was based on I can see that the nose was tweaked a little from the orignal, but never would I have noticed had a base not been supplied XD

Just finished watching the episode 'Love & Monsters' actually, so this was a nice surprise! ^^

it definately does look photographic I thought at first it was a photomanipulation. It looks flat in places (the far cheek, a bit under the brows, the shadows near his hairline). You can use your colour to change that by going a little cooler and a little darker where it recedes more. The end of his nose is creepy 'cause it looks like he only has one nostril or like something is growing off it. If you go a little darker (probly a bit cooler too) on the far fluke it'll help.

Extra kudos to you for doing it with a mouse and no tablet.
