Rare Homo Sapiens Specimen by Orioto Rare Homo Sapiens Specimen by Orioto
This one is certainly not my most "pretty", but it's without a doubt my most ambitious.

To make a realistic Homer is just, impossible.

Matt Groening made him, voluntarily, a monster. He's yellow, he has a neanderthal forehead, big bulging eyes with (and i think it's intentional, so i kept it) a clear strabismus. A weird jaw bone, nose etc... Really little ears, really low on the neck, no eyebrow... His baldness is just too prononced for his age and all...

You can make him like someone else, trying to find his personality, or you can (i chosed that possibility, obviously) try to make him the monster he is.

That's just what i like to do, for now 4 years. I study the facial features of symbolized character, to see what can be taken from it !

This one may seem reeeeeeeeeeaaal weird, but i'm kind of happy with my work. it took dozen of hours to find the good balance, and i think it's the most precise rendition that can be find of him, even if the guy would be creepy in the reality^^

At I was like 'wait...he looks familiar..who is he?'
Then I understood :D

I think it's a really good approach. The eyes and the mouth are really good!

This is spot on a real Homer, except that he looks a bit too skinny.

You mean a Homer Sapien?

Bad puns aside, I think you did a convincing job rendering a real-life Homer-- without looking overly creepy. I really like how you gave him the beard to match his lower face color, and the yellow tinge works well. Good job.

Your photomanip is done quite good, but your black strokes are standing out a bit too much.

Maybe you should mention Giamatti like so many are saying. The original flipped pic can easily be found

That looks like Paul Giamatti, are you sure you painted this??? It obviously looks like a photo manipulation not a painting. You should change category and give credit to the pic you used. Although I think you are not allowed to use copyrighted pics. :hmm:

The stubble on his face and head make him look a bit too dark/dirty. If it was a bit less intense I think it would work a bit more.

He also looks a bit too young imo, maybe 10-20 years older and he'd work.

I knew exactly who he was when I saw the image though and don't ever watch the series so it's a pretty good photo-manipulation from my view. =)
