Noble, John by ChaosAcathla Noble, John by ChaosAcathla
I've wanted to tackle this guys awesome face for ages but didn't think I could pull it off. Anyway I sat down today with four references and a bad cold for inspiration.

My inability to move resulted in me finishing this in one sitting!

EDIT Changed it to a copy without the red in the background.

WIPs available if anyone wants to see some progress steps.

Painted from scratch as always using PS CS6 + Wacom Intuos4 Medium.

Thank you very much indeed!

The actors name is actually John Noble, if you've ever seen Lord of the Rings he plays Lord Denethor the mad Steward of Gondor, father of Boromir and Faramir.

Haha no such skills or commitment unfortunately, I just had a basic idea of who he played and IMDB did the rest. I just figure LOTR would be the most likely thing you'd have seen him in! ^^

for me, Dr. Walter Bishop from FRINGE! :D and btw this show is amazingly EPIC just like the painting.. :) You've done excellent job!
but however I'm still sad Fringe is in its final season... :| so..

Yeah I love Fringe! And Walter is the best character, especially his hilarious relationship with 'Astro'! :D
It is very sad that it's ending, I really hope it goes out with a bang! I'm not really sure where they are going with it at the moment, the Peter/Olivia thing is a bit of a mess in my opinion, I'm not sure why the writers are dragging them apart again but I have faith that it'll all come together.

Any thoughts on the red background by any chance? I'm still toying with replacing it with the just black one.

Thank you very much for the comment! ^^

black background, huh? ehm.. I dunno, just a question but.. don't you think it's way too dark? in my opinion it would be better if the background is not total black but one of the stages with lighting effects.. or something like that.

Oh and you're very welcome! I'm always amazed of your painting skills. :)

Yeah I worried about that too, I just felt the red was over powering the portrait. I think I will go back to it though add some light, thank you so much for the input! ^^
