This looks better than a photo. If this was mine, I would put this in for a photography competition, win and then at the award ceremony announce that it is a painting and enjoy everyone's face expressions :P

Oh my god, someone make this into a Daily Deviation RIGHT NOW!! :wow: The expressions of the hands and tones of, well, everything, are superb! It's good to see that people still sit and paint the traditional way once in a while.

why isn't this a daily deviant? real paintings like this are far more hardcore than anything made on a computer. it reminds me of those incredibly detailed oil paintings in Juxtapoz magazine that were so good.

love this one... ..although the skin seem a little ( just a little) unreal but the Dimension of hands and guitar and the details are really awesome..... and also you draw it in 122*71cm..... A big job man.... .. :D

thanks, this photo of the painting is actually not very good. A lot of the details, especially in the hands got blurred, hopefully thats why the skin doesnt look right to you :) I'll be relplacing this photo as soon as I get the pro one done
