The Faceman - Daniel

Well here I am again with yet another late submission.
This time however I have a legitimate excuse! I was working on a response to the theme of the A Team a few weeks ago, when suddenly Corel crashed on me and my file was corrupted. I was distraught, but I thought what would the A Team do? The answer: dust themselves off and do an even better painting than they had originally planed. (Not that I imagine any of the A Team would paint illustrations for fun) Any way here is my submission for the A Team. I went for Templeton "Faceman" Peck, as I thought most people would do the lovable Mr T and I wanted to bring a bit of variety to the theme. Hope you enjoy it gang! Cheers!


  1. Awesome Daniel! I like a lot about this piece but what I like the most is the play of light and shadow around the face and torso! And the facial expression is gold!

  2. looking good lad.. lol
    most people would do the lovable Mr. T because he was the subject of that weeks theme. Not like you to break the rules, but noones gonna stop you. good job!

  3. Hey Eddy, thanks for the positive feedback. It took me a while to nail the expression on Drik's face, but I was happy with the final result.

    Sorry about not paying attention to the theme Welshman, I'll double check next time.

  4. A great pic Dan! Theme schmeme - just good to have you back!

  5. Good old corel painter!!! The only good thing about it crashing so often was that you usually did something better the second time 'round...that app likes to make you rehearse! Dan, awesome distortion of form and that look is simply great!
