As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

thanks belle, i didnt choose a great picture to copy as it was so dark and had to fill in a few gaps myself!!! the best bits too hehe!!

One of the best self-portraits I have seen for a long time.....

Conty, beautiful result. Subject is great but your technique is wonderful. You should be facing a bright career if there is any justice.

Yes he does look like a rather sherry soaked Parker, lovely expression on his face, I don't think the hands are a problem to me it just looks like I can see his knuckle holding the strap...well done Tom!

Your not butting in Swifty,must be harder carving sunglasses onto a gargoyle to disguise the eyes,hehe...practice on an onion,carve the shape on the first layer,the eyelid on the second and so on,once heard someone mention this..

Tom  I'm sure I worked with that chap in Mississippi  mind you I was in a Power Station and he was Picking Cotton.

It really looks like one of the fellas sitting on the porch or the stoop depending on the part of the world your in.
