Morgan Freeman by Erlson Morgan Freeman by Erlson
There are many portraits of Morgan Freeman out there, I didn't know until I painted one myself. I'd like to say mine is a little bit more unique than the others since many other people simply try to re-create the photo. Leave that to the cameras and photocopy machines. You don't need to copy the photo verbatim, it's ok to show some creativity. Give the piece a "human touch".
Anyways, the process video to this piece can be found here:www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVY3LE…
For those interested in seeing how I incorporated the canvas texture into my painting, the video will help a lot in explaining how. 
Hope you like it.

This is amazing!! But is it just me or is the left eye slightly off? (His left)

Thanks, and yes i intentionally made his eye look slightly off. That's what it looked like in the original reference photo. Plus, I personally like drawing attention the asymmetrical qualities of a person's face, it helps capture the person's likeness.
