One man  band by AngelasPortraits One man  band by AngelasPortraits
Many thanks to:iconasturisw:for allowing me use this wonderful reference photo

I have to be honest .... this was much more difficult to draw than I thought it would be!!
Several times I thought I was finished, only to find another part of the reference that I hadn't finished.
However, I battled on.
There are a couple of parts I am not happy with, but I have had enough.
Having said all that, I enjoyed drawing this wee man (most of the time!!)
LOL

Tortillons

Many thanks for looking:heart:

Thank you for asking Angela. Not good at all, we've found out it's way more serious than we thought. However, in the last few days Daddy's been feeling better. We'll have to see what happens.

... I finally got around to commenting! :D
Where do I start? The amount of detail is astonishing, particularly with the wrinkles and the textures of the beard and clothing. The eyes are extremely well done - they feel as though they are wise and have seen so much, which adds to the character of this piece and captures the reference beautifully.

I particularly love the use of tones here, as it makes for a dramatic and deep atmosphere. Your rendering with the flute has a great metallic sheen to it. All in all, it looks almost identical to Ana's great photograph - well done Angela! :D :highfive:
