    Nacho Libre painting

    I finished this painting a couple of weeks...geez, wait...more than a month ago now. I just realized I never posted it. It may not be conceptual art persay...but it's pretty much just me learning the digital ropes. I really like how the face came out. I'm trying to develop a style where some areas of depicted naturally realistic and other flat and really stylized. I also want to keep some of my pencil line-work into the finished piece as well.

    Please, feel free to comment or crit. Thanks guys

    that's brilliant! I love the color!


    I'm not sure if you managed to pull off the "flat/stylized" aspects of it, but it's still great....

    Fun look and pretty nice color. Doesn't really look much like Jack Black though.

    Hahahahaha, I laughed when I read the title, still have to see the movie. This is awesome though, like it was said before, color is awesome. His face slimmed down a bit when taken to finish. I would expand on the weight in his face just a bit, even in the double chin, and it probably will look like him a bit more. Thanks for the laugh -

    I love this. It's the perfect style for the subject matter. But, sadly I'm going to have to agree that he doesn't really resemble Jack Black. I'm geussing you may have not used a reference?

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    I had the colors pretty much set in my mind when I started this one. Essentially I just wanted to recreate the same color palette used in the movie. I remember seeing the trailer and thinking, damn, everything in this movie was thought of. The whole thing was filled with perfect sky blues, warm yellows and vibrant pinks.

    As far as it not really looking like Jack Black, I guess I can see that. I did use reference from the movie, a couple of different shots infact. I think the problem may be in that i did thin his face down a bit when I painted it and jack black usually has some pretty extreme facial expressions and maybe, i guess, it was to harder to capture that raw energy. The one thing that i noticed in all his publicity shots was his intense stare and I tried to capture at least. Maybe, at some point, i'll go back in and add some fat to that face of his.

    Thanks everyone.
