    Wow, that first one makes me feel really sad, like the baby has been left behind.

    Love the lighting on the 3rd one, but not too crazy about the drool. :)

    Are you speaking about the wet lip or the clef in his chin....? I don't see drool unless you're talking about how his bottom lip is slightly glossy. Anyway... thanks for the... interesting CC! :)

    Ha ha ha... :)

    His chin looks very shiny, that's all. Maybe it's my monitor... ;)

    Thanks Zendianah. I did this all with a simple gradient map, just adding some contrast in the end, doing a soft light layer at about 20 percent opacity, and defogging.

    I think it must be! :) I had this done as a 24x36 canvas for my studio space and I don't see drool!

    I just came across these, and as usual, your portraits never fail to amaze me! At first I thought the second was a favorite, but I really can't decide. All three are absolutely incredible. :thumbup: :thumbup:

    (Actually, it might be quite interesting to see one of your unedited portraits. Although I'm sure they're just as amazing straight off the camera! ;))
