Almost hate to ask this cause you are an amazing artist don't get me wrong. But just because the rest of him is kinda blurred out and only his face is in focus, was this done over a pic of him or did you do the entire thing? Amazing job either way.
Thanks. When i done painting this piece, I didn't like a few things, so I played around with the new blurs in PS6. I think it was field blur or iris blur. I played around with the blurs in many ways, but I like how it turned out. BTW my reference photo was on my desk when I painted this, so I hope that answers your other question as well.
