Below is a portrait I've been working on recently (plus references). I've been growing increasingly frustrated with being unable to achieving a strong likeness of the subject and wonder where I could be going wrong. I've approached it many different ways and even started over twice, but I really don't want to give up!
It's part of a series of Breaking Bad portraits I've been working on (full project on dribbble) - the other characters came together quite easily, but this one seems to be eluding me at every turn.
The character is Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. I wonder if his recognisability comes more from the way he moves or talks, or perhaps his features are more pronounced from other angles. Either way, you'll see something is getting lost in the translation - I just don't know what!
