20 min in Painter.

Edit: In the title the time limit is 20 minutes, but in the post it says 5. I'm not sure which is the actual time limit?

I guess it's meant to be 20min. First the title also said 5min which is pretty short. Looks like Roberto just forgot to chance the post itself

20 minutes, photoshop. First I was trying to make it quite realistic, but in the last five minutes I suddenly decided to experiment and changed the whole sketch :)

I'm afraid it didn't become a self-portrait, (though coincidentally I do have brown eyes and a quite thin pair of eyebrows), and it took longer than 20 minutes too, I tried to follow this tutorial quite closely:

3 hours, PS CS2:
