Very nice study you've got here!

The hair in particular is pretty spot on in comparison to the original painting (here: www.sothebys.com/content/dam/s… for anyone who is curious)

Pushing the details in the beard and facial hair a little bit more would really make this stand out, though I do understand the "painterly" feel you're going for here. I would also maybe revisit the shading in the face in comparison to the original if you're going for being a perfectionist about it.

Otherwise, I think it's a very solid study. The colors are great, the technique you've used here is great, and I look forward to seeing more of them :)

This is an AMAZING work! When I first saw it I was amazed by the extreme detail of it. It looks like a professional self-portrait from long ago. I was especially impressed by how you did the shading with this work because the flesh tone is perfect, the eyes have a beautiful blue that fits his hair color, his hair color and shade variations within his hair color are perfect, and you can even see perfectly the detail and creases in his black suit (something most people make too dark to see clearly, which takes away quality and impact from the image). I also like how you gave the portrait a green and brown mottled background, it really fits with the picture. Needless to say your work is like something straight out of a dream! Definitely looking forward to more of your amazing work :)

Oh lol. I just sent in a critique, and said how it looked like a self-portrait from long ago. Little did I know it actually is, and so I looked up the original. You have certainly brought new life to it :) I guess I'm pretty good at guessing the era of stuff, right? I like both versions very much. The lips of the original were a little bit more defined, and the hair a little bit more finer in detail. But here's the thing, Duran used actual paint and canvas. You used digital paint and canvas, and how ANYONE can be talented enough to mimic (or otherwise) with such impeccable detail with that method is beyond me. Very well done work :)

What a great effort! It really looks like the masters did it.
Is there a set rule as to rendering? Cause I just wonder what goes into the colour placement.

And there's no set rule really, i just make sure i understand values and wing the rest.
