Steve Jobs Tribute by Lehanan Steve Jobs Tribute by Lehanan
I'm not into tributes but I had the need to do this one for Steve Jobs.

Because, without him, I would never have been this way.

We will miss you.

Photoshop, speedpaint (around 2 hours)

Ref: [link]

I suck at portraits, I know, but this isn't the matter of this picture. So rude critiques aren't wellcome = )

Woah! Really good! I'd like to see you do more realism in addition to the beautiful style you do. But this is pretty amazing and I think you should do more like it.

Thank you!

But realism bores me; I depend 100% from photo references and I don't like that :XD:

This is probably not what you intended but I find a pretty deep meaning to this, and most other things. But his eyes are sharp and it represents the vision he had and how it will forever live on, while the rest of him is slowly fading away. It's lovely and RIP Steve, the world is glad to have known such a great man no matter how short your life was. "Why must the good, innocent and insperational people die young?"

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. - Apple Inc.

I like the way how his eyes are drawn sharp and the rest of the picture is more and more blurry, like he is slowly disappearing. Beautiful.

Nothing more??
He was a genius, Steve Jobs designed a whole new world. :/

DeDani Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2011
Nope. Nothing more.
Maybe he was smart, but no,
he doesnt designed a new world.
He was a leader of a company
and he has a lot of people which
does all these design-thing for
the company. And no the IPad was
not an idea of Apple. Many
companies out there does similar
thing before.

And the end: Its still a company
and he was the leader/ founder
of this company. Nothing more.
