Okay....until you've drawn in the moustachio, that's just a crazy coot in desperate need of a dentist :D

He is one of my favourite Artists, can't wait to see this finished Jeff - you've captured the lets call them 'mad' eyes perfectly, although mad is a tad harsh - perhaps the eyes of a genius and yes to party with him would have been an experience - if you could remember anything! Keep up this great stuff Jeff - love it.

Thanks guys!
here he is a few more nights in- I also found a contrast enhancement in the paint program I use- I think it helpes a little with the photos taken on the fly

it's called JASC paintshop pro.

The contrast enhance sure does help with the look of the phone pic..

thanks chanda! :)

Hi Jeff,

I really love your work! I looked up JASC paint pro and there are 'some' that say this can be downloaded for free...not sure if these are reputable sites or not? I bought a Corel paint shop program (about 3 years ago) and a bamboo pen that I've played around with but found it a bit frustrating.

Is JASC easy to use?

Thanks tricky raven, I mostly use it for photo manipulation- it does have some nice features and is relatively easy to use.

"Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad." Quote by Salvador Dali

And that's darn good Jeff, and that is one Bad Ass shirt!

thanks andrew,
funny how after I see photographs of my portraits I can suddenly see more work to do. Here I think I have a bit more darkening to do on the rest of the shirt ...unless its the light in the pic.. (sigh)

A friend has pointed out, (I think correctly) that I have a symmetry issue with his pupils...prolly try to fix it tonight.. :)

I noticed that but I thought you did it on purpose - for some reason it "fits" him. The left pupil is smaller than the right -lol - but for whatever reason it works

I agree with chanda. His craziness really shows with the shifting/differing eyes :)

A spotlight shines upon mine eye, the blacker the better and healthier still

Jeff, on the subject of the eye, you may consider what Salvador himself once said:

"Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them."

Interesting quote....thanks for that.
