Why is he smiling? Because I finally managed to capture some of his illusive freckles! Freckles are hard to paint without it looking like you flung dirty water at the painting. (For me, anyway.) And I decided if I was going after the freckles, I might as well go all the way and capture all the little details, like the individual hairs and lashes. I used SUCH a tiny brush for this painting, it took forever! I hope you like it. ^_^
This is NOT a Photoshop filter, every stroke is painted by me.
