Liam Neeson by ThreshTheSky Liam Neeson by ThreshTheSky
Actor Liam Neeson

I was going to do a painting for the movie Taken and found this photo when I was looking for references. This isn't from that particular movie, but I liked it enough to use it anyway.

I showed my friend this from far away and he said it was "A great photograph. What kind of camera do they use?" That's when they looked at it up close and I told them it was a digital painting.

With his haircut he looks very close to Ewan McGregor when they made Star Wars or as he's seen in The Isle (or Island).
Just squeez your eyes a bit and smudge the center of his face in your mind. The surrounding fits perfectly for McGregor as well^^

Great job done here by the way! I enjoy it.

The detail in this piece simply blows me away. I'll confess I haven't thoroughly studied your other works, but as an example of photorealism I think it takes second place only to your cats.

Thanks! I think this is one of the best "photorealistic" paintings that I've done. (I hate even using the term since it's a bit subjective as to what should even be counted as "photo"-realistic, but you know what I mean. ;)) They're really tough for me to do and take forever since skin texture is one area where I struggle the most. I need to practice. :)

He really was a perfect Valjean, and the best part of the 98 movie... except that little smirk when Javert...you know... that was COMPLETELY OCC. Blame the directors. Liam is amazing. :) How DO you make eyes so pretty?
