Day dreaming by Orioto Day dreaming by Orioto
Remember some years ago i tried to make a realistic Homer, and it was horrible! I had to try again, but this time i took my time too make sure i was perfectly happy with it!

The key was not only the facial features, but especially the personality and the attitude.

I would like to begin some serie of old school photography portrait of mainstream characters like that. But let's see what you think about this one to begin with.

This looks fantastic! The top of the ears should be higher, but otherwise this is amazing.

Am I the only thinking there's a little bit of Paul Giamatti in his face?

Yup, that's very Giamatti-esque.

Then again, Paul Giamatti would be an awesome live-action Homer, so... great work!

Recognized this as Homer instantly. Very nice job on this one. I'd like to see something from Futurama - Leela would be really cool to see in this style. Nice work!

Well, you got the look bang on, the only reason people will say it looks off or creepy is only because it hasn't been seen animated ;)

He looks like Karl Pilkington, strangely....

Just looking at him, I could tell who it is, and that his internal monologue is "Mmmmm, donuts."
