I think it's about time we feature some work from this amazing artist. Charles Breed by nimra is just one of many amazing works in his gallery. This portrait just captures everything that makes art what it is. I love it! (Selected by $matteo) ( Featured by matteo )

awesome job!!! =)
zen0 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2004
Technically your work is always excellent - the textures, the detail, the painterly lost and found edges.
But what helps make your work stand up from the rest of the realists is the life and vitality that shows through all of your portraits.
More excellent work.
I always enjoy seeing a new piece show up in my watch list.

Avetsbane Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2004
Very nice. I love all the wrinkles in his face, so much detail you've put into it without totally messing it up. And then his sweater too, really sticks out to me. It looks just like fabric. I love it. The contrast of the whiteishness of his face to the darker background sticks out to me too, whether you intended it like that or not...
dragonhuntr Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2003  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
There are artist and there are illustrators but every now and then you come across the picasso's and the leonardos of our our century. Congrats to you on a gift that I hope brings more to you world than just wonderous works of (the word art doesn't even begin to describe your work) the gifts from GOD to you. In shock and AWE!!
Your work makes me want to be better.
Sincerely from one artist to another,
Dragon Huntr

daeira Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2003
Oh dear, this must've taken you such a long time.. But it's well worth it! The sweater in this drawing is just so perfectly drawn. I can see every little detail in it. I'm sure I couldn't have done that had this been a photograph. So it's amazing. Just amazing. And a bit creepy, you having so much skill. But I guess you are tired of hearing people say that.
ychi4100 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2003   Traditional Artist
Again, awesome! How do you make the hair look so real? wht's your secret for keeping your drawing so clean ?

shdwdancr Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2003
the detail is incredible!! great job! <-- vast understatement, but hopefully you understand I think it's fabulous. :)
kajoc Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2003
Incredible picture, as always. There is one thing about your art that bothers me: I've noticed that even though your skills as a pencil renderer are unmatched here at deviantart you aren't getting that many +fav picks and comments as you'd deserve. After pondering over this for some time I've come up with a theory.

You're technical skills are, of course, at the stage which most of us will never reach, but you seem to lack some of the artistic mentality that gives a picture "life". This particular piece is a good example of that. The fact that it's made purely by skill and not by heart may be the reason why it doesn't the recognition it deserves from the other deviants (not counting the Daily Deviation pick). Almost 70 favs and over a hundred comments is great, but I think you deserve more.

If you don't care about favs and lots of comments, then fine. I'm not here to tell you what to do or to blame you. I'm writing this because I admire you immensely and I think it's a great sin that you don't have more than 100 favs on each and everyone of your pictures. Then again, if you feel comfortable with your style and you don't want to change it then go ahead, I won't bother you with this again. I just wanted to get it off my chest.

Do keep up the good work, you never cease to amaze me (though I believe you could do even better).
syrus Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2002
amazing... I love the work you did on that jumper, on the left... thats amazing...
nutbunny Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2002
Wow, it's so hard to believe, that this is not a photo... it looks so realistic

tulkas Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2002  Hobbyist Artist
well it seems like we're all pretty speechless... still I'll just have to comment even if I'm just looking through your gallery... well I can just agree with everybody else... and zwartschaap, "The hair, the fabric, the eyes, the shading!"
damn... I can't express myself.
vysethetwisted Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2002
