First sketch of a few in the "portrait series". This is a relatively older version of the Velvet Underground founder.
oh, man! this is so POWERFUL! even with his eyes closed, and that serene expression. you used the dark tones REALLY well, dave!
Thank you. I love the expression, too. It is intense, even with eyes closed. That is what I saw, anyway. I thought heavily of old photos of criminals that were hanged. It seemed to go up against my thoughts on John, but those photos are so eerie to me. I don't know. I thank you so much. This was a happy outcome. I love it and enjoyed doing it
really well done!
Thank you. Much appreciated!
awesome. and thank you. that is very helpful. that was the first time I really just "went for it", bold like. I am pleased with it for that reason. I get caught up on realism, and i am trying to get away from that, even when doing the portrait stuff. So thank you for saying that. It felt more right, and I hope to move more in that direction in future. Your feedback is extremely useful.
Great portrait. You don't hold back on the dark tones, confident. I like it.
