Orange boy
About this creation
LEGO artist Sean Kenney - Portraiture

When commissioned to create a portrait of this boy, I was told that his favorite color was orange. So I oranged it up!

As always, my portraits are hand-drawn (not computer-generated) and mounted to a wooden backing similar to a canvas painting.

It was tricky to make sure the background didn't blend with his shirt, and did you notice how the background is different on each side? The left is orange-on-yellow, and the right is yellow-on-orange... Since orange is darker than yellow, this helps make the background look less "flat" and a bit more naturally-lit.

Hmm, suddenly I want some Tropicana and a bowl of mac-and-cheese...

This portrait really sticks out. It´s not only the cool 70s background, it´s the natural mixture of light and shadow in his face that looks terrific.

Very nice, do you use a computer program or just build straight from a photo?

The orange rings in the background are incredible, you were still able to keep the shirt seperate, incredible, great work Sean.

Yes, I *did* notice the change of colour on the background at first glance. The effect is working really well!
