I like the texture you created in this portrait of Jesus Christ making it look like the cracks of the original fresco. I like how you filled the frame and the colours you used. Very good use of light and shade. Good luck in the contest. Suzanne

Comment from Nancy Montana


Plainly shown in the face of the portrait is the life that the man has lead. You can see the pain and the passion, the love and the caring. It could well be fresco itself. The artist did an excellent job of accomplishing what was desired. This is an extremely realistic portrait. Very well executed.

Very nicely done. Looks like a photo from a monastery-mit is that good. Like the cracked effect and the tones on the face work really well. Well done.

Very nicely done, my friend. Perfect painting rendering here and I love the face only framing. Really makes the eyes the focus. Post processing is also perfect giving a very nice fresco look. Great job and good luck!

Very nicely done artwork. I'm sure it will do well in the contest. What I like most about this is the eyes. They are intense and seem to pull you in. Very nice skin tones. I like the up close framing.

This is a formal rendition of gentle strokes as opposed to the carefree style of your previous artworks!

An impressive creation.
Nice skin tone with excellent hair strokes & textures.
Compact framing.
Good compositional style. Great overall impact!

Thanks for sharing...

Well captured image that is full of detail. I like that you kept the glazing cracks in the piece, they give it the sense of age that is needed. Good color. Well drawn. Good luck in the contest.

In my opinion, this will be the winner of this contest. You have done an excellent job of creating a fresco look. You even created the crazing in the plaster. Your skin tones are superb.
