So my partner is a very big gamer and is a big halo fan. I'd like to get a custom portrait to hang in his games room of Master Chief (the main character) but i would like his face shield off and it to be my partners face instead.
I'm after a really dope semi/realistic type look for this piece. The inspo pic i attached is good but i definitely want a more realistic piece and background design and i'll attach some inspo pics. I'd like his character to be sharp, well detailed and would like the background to be similar to that of the inspo pic (lightening skies/moody and a light/sun surrounding his character) - See Pic.
I've attached my partners face for reference obviously. I only really have smiling photos of him at the moment, but would like a more focused/ serious face. He's got a clean cut haircut, slim chiseled face with a goatee as you can see.
I'm thinking it would be an A3 size piece for his games room and just want it to really shine and pop. Would love to discuss and bounce ideas off someone and see what we could come up with. Would love to see some similar work if you have any
I'm not in any rush, his birthday is in December :) My budget is probably that of $300 - $500.
