I've never heard of the man but it is a wonderful drawing, Paul.Great values, expression and structure. He looks very rugged!
Excellent work Paul.. I know what you mean when you say it doesn't look like him.. Sometimes just a slight tweak of a shadow, line or mark can make all the difference. I've found when doing portraits that the more I look at it and the original, the more it will come together.That said I think it's super good !! BJ
Even though the likeness may not be perfect it is still an excellent portrait !
Even the ones that don't go to plan can be enjoyable and we learn more from them than the ones that turn out just as expected. It's a great portrait and I still can't believe how far you've come in such a short time. Happy New Year matey. ;-)
