Thx very much Sum. i must admit that I'm getting more confident with each portrait. (You guys are certainly helping with that, and I appreciate that very much) I was thinking last night while I was working on it -It almost feels like painting with pencil.
I am humbled as well (by you guys' kudos) thx again brotha. + thanks DonH!
Thanks you guys! I appreciate your comments ALOT. I think it helps as well when you love your subject. This was sure the case here- whats f'ing greater than Willie? ...his headband in the photo said "IRS Rules" ...which was great, but in light of his recent run-ins in Texas, and all the great work he does with NORML, I figured It was ok to embellish this one.
i think I'll entitle it "free Willie"
Really, I enjoyed looking at the progress. Superb work! very detailed. I like how you did the facial lines, it made it looks very realistic! Wow! Keep on posting your works, I really want to see more from you! Thanks fro letting us see that wonderful job!
