Jude-in-Law by Cataclysm-X Jude-in-Law by Cataclysm-X
Updated with a better scan


Jude Law as himself.



People either like or hate him. Personally I think this he's just misunderstood. Though I first didn't really like him all that much, I got to appreciate him more after seeing several of his movies (= research), of course with SH being my favourite so far.


I'm trying full coloured portraits this time. Although the likeness isn't as good as my grayscale portraits yet, I'm doing my best. I'm sure it will get better someday :) after all- from experience I discovered practice makes perfect, so expect more coloured portraits soon..


For hours I tried to fix the colours with Photoshop but it's nowhere close to the real thing. Boohoo. I'm such a Photoshop n00b. :C


Drawn with Derwent Coloursoft pencils on A4 size Hahnemühle Nostalgie paper. Lost count how many hours.

Just amazing! Superb workmanship in blending of the colors. I'm trying my hand at colored pencils but haven't uploaded anything yet in that medium. Still need much practice to get close to your level.

Can't tell if it's a photo or a drawing, though it IS in fact a drawing, It's... man, "Halo 4" to "Total Recall" all over again. But to put it simply, it's beautiful and nicely done, even of I don't know who he is xD

The likeness is remarkable! And to tell you the truth I prefer colored portraits than grayscale ones, even if the latter may seem more realistic.

The eyes alone are just perfect, and the texture and soft tones on the skin really make justice to his beauty. :love:

This is excellent! It's nice to see you going for some colour-realism as well, just to kind of expand on your talent and skill achieved with greyscale. I've been working more with coloured pencils too, and it's great to be working towards something new, but it's aggravating at times trying to get all the colours to do what you could do with shades of black/grey.
Anyways, keep it up, looks great :D

Absolutely lovely!

Critique: The right side of his neck in the portrait should have extended a little bit farther and the fingers could have just a touch more realism, also, you could accentuate the space under his eyes and the dip down to his cheekbones.

But those are just little nitpicks. This is absolutely stunning!

Hi Nicolien,
I thought this was a photograph with Photoshop filter manipulation.
The depth and realism is excellent and the likeness is almost there.
Any chance we can see the reference you have used?

As for Jude Law, I'm not much of a fan of him, but definitely do not understand why people hate him. Also, he was rather brilliant in SH :)
