Dexter by xXBlackMagicXx Dexter by xXBlackMagicXx
Dexter Morgan.

I've been an avid Dexter fan for a couple of years, but none of the promo pics had grabbed me until now.

Ref - [link]

Blood spatter brushes - [link]
A set called Ink Splats and another called Drips and Splats - I can't remember if they came from ImagineFX or here, so tyvm if you made them!

Photoshop, Painter, Wacom, 6 hours

Still trying to loosen up a bit.

Soo great, it actually brought tears to my eyes. You are right, this promo-picture was especially good, and your interpretation makes it even more awesome.
The "rougher" brushes make him come to life, pinpoint his personality.
I miss this show so much now.

I dare say that this is some fine art shit right here! The way the portrait visualizes the separation between Dexter using normal color palette and his Dark Passenger in red palette - it's got a great effect on me. So great it's over-fucking-whelming.

p/s: pardon my obscenities. I had to emphasize.

This is amazing.. doesn't even look like digital! Major props! I thought it was an oil painting. I wish you sold prints of this, I would buy one in a heartbeat.
