Time lapse video (1/2) of my last painting Tom Holland as Spider-Man. Please follow @xidingart for more! I’ll post the 2nd part soon. Had to split it into two parts because Instagram only allows 1:00 video 😿 Thank you all for your feedbacks and critiques! I tried again to improve the likeness. How does he look now?

Using mostly Photoshop for his brilliant digital art, he paints layer by layer, creating amazing masterpieces with strikingly vibrant colors.
Like most caricatures, his work highlights prominent character features which result in cartoonish yet lifelike art.
He has created works featuring prominent celebrities and public figures such as Hollywood star Tom Cruise, filmmaker George Lucas, renowned scientist Stephen Hawking, POTUS Donald Trump, Barack and Michelle Obama.
Xi also happens to be a movie fan so his art usually takes inspiration from the movies and even television characters he loves.
Here’s Rey from Star Wars:
Eleven from Stranger Things
and the Mother of Dragons herself, Queen Daenerys Targaryen of Game of Thrones:
His recent work featured characters from the billion-dollar global blockbuster from Marvel, Avengers: Infinity War.
