12ā€x16ā€ oil on canvas. I completed this theme with the full pack now. It turns out that I lack the beauty of the other members and therefore look super scary with large eyes so i kept them normal.

This is awesome...you are so good with people..I find it very hard!

Great job Th79....the jacket is excellent

LOL did you start with big eyes and it freaked out your family? Oh well. Looks terrific! Your clothing is always excellent with the shadows and folds. Cool background. I see you posted your progress pics wherein your process is to paint the background last. I go in the opposite direction - backgrounds first (painted around my sketch of the subject) and then the subject (usually a pet) šŸ¤”

Iā€™m with flipper girl I think this looks really cool, background and everything, clothing.

Very good work, I especially like the jacket.

Thanks for all the nice comments!
Iā€™m glad you like the jacket/shirt because that is the main thing I wanted to practice when I made this.
Pam, I did start with bigger eyes and it freaked me out lol. If you look at the progress pics that brownish square area is where i initially drew the face and decided to smudge it out and flip canvas and start over.

You are so good at painting people. The jacket is indeed crazy awesome! Such an interesting (in a very good way) theme for this painting . Very nice Tommy!

Thank you Nancy!
