Portrait of a Man

This is one of the first paintings that I ever did. It's from around 1994. Anything that I did before this was just a warm up - or I was doing a lot of drawing. I used oil and acrylic. It is 9"x12". I unearthed this painting recently and photographed it. Upon doing so, the image re-inspired me and I thought it would be interesting to digitally manipulate it in my computer (something I never do out of respect for the art). Since it had been so long and I had all but forgotten about this piece, I felt the move was justified. Here is the 21st century digital version:

This one I really like. It is amuzing, brillant. I consider computer art as art as well. My self I am a digital painter. Mostly I do not manipulate fotos. I draw with corel paint and grphic pen and after that eventually I manipulate my own drawings.
In his case I prefere the original.
