Another Sketch (November 12, 2006)

patch

Here is the fruit of my sketchbook today. For some reason, I really enjoyed this one. The moustache is the part that I like the most. This fellow seems sad, but resilient. Mysterious, but aware. I like the partial hiding behind the moustache and eyepatch. This would be someone I could sit down with and know that what he had to tell me would be important and meaningful.

Wow! What a face! I like this drawing, great style. Wish I could do that too ...

Truly wonderful how you depicted all the character in his face -- all the lines and the cragginess (is that a word?)

This is great! His ruggedness has a Sam Shepard quality to it. I love the unibrow!
