I guess I'm not really into painted replicas of photographs. Why not offer something unique and preferably more creative? If I liked the picture, I'd buy a print of the picture.

It looks more like NI dressed as Bono than Bono

So do you dress him up as Bono often Wild?

Have to say the painting doesn't do much for me either

I agree with Liesje, rather see something creative. Like the wonderful Kelly Eddington Achtoons - September one is up now BTW and super-creative!!

what the hell is that????

I can draw better than that... and I'm no artist... if I like a picture I'll make a poster of it, I wouldn't even want this thing if they paid me to hang it on my wall!

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

The second one isn't quite so bad. It's a questionable choice of pose and profile, but I don't see a huge problem with it artistically. I just find art like this rather boring.

The first one looks like an average, but enthusiastic Year 10 student made it.

Whoa, Whoa, Everybodys style of painting is different. Its not meant to look exactly like a photograph. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
