Twain


I found a really cool picture of Mark Twain. The first version looked like Stalin, so I had to start over(wouldn't want to support an ideology, although he does have a red robe).
I tried very hard to keep this one loose.

Very nice man, about how long does something like this take you?

Thanks guys, this one was 2 maybe 3 hours. It's more of a sketch then a finished work I'd say.

excellent as usual, Dave, may be a little less loosy than the "Natalie" portrait to me but the details are highly suggested on the whole piece...
you're a real master...
