His expression cracks me up (Sorry, Angelique!). I love that enlarged eye of disdain or inquiry. What a funny, funny portrait. Laughing, in a good way, at how his upper body is so much bigger than his lower half. The curled thumb on the cane is a scream--reminds me of those Mad Magazine cartoons by Don Martin. The brown tone of this adds a little mystery as do the shadows. Well done on the clothing and hair detailing; nice folds in the cloak. Simply a terrific piece. That face...ha, ha, ha.
Thanks, everyone. This was fun to draw and play with. Although I've seen several other REALLY good pieces in this contest, so I'm not sure how I'll fare.
Very cool-good style and technique
his face in this one makes me giggle for some reason :3
it looks 3d too!
