Henry Cavill

Willem's and Mads' faces were fun to paint because there is a sinister element to them.   Or just a touch creepy.  Just enough to make it interesting trying to capture those features.  

To change things up, I decided to paint Henry Cavill, the actor that plays Superman.  Henry looks heroic and classic.  Kind of perfect.  I found a picture of him where he's in strong sunlight.  I like the dark shadows it makes.  

8" x 8" x 0.5" acrylic on canvas

I even captured some little veins on his forehead.  His perfect gorgeous forehead.

Before I finished it, I showed Nate what I was working on: 
He thought I should leave him without eyes and let it be evil Superman.  

Painting faces is fun.  Who should I paint next?  Nate has suggested Kevin Bacon and/or Christopher Walken.  I'm also considering Jack Nicholson.  Not sure.
