I used to dream of being able to play the guitar the way this man can. Oh my goodness. He is amazing. It’s been many years since I’ve picked up a guitar, but I know that when I do, the dream will resurface. And it will continue to remain a dream. 🙂
I’ve always loved his music though. I believe my reference image was fairly recent, but this guy started recording music in the late 60s (although he didn’t become well-known until the ’70s). Still a handsome man, though, wouldn’t you say?
As for the drawing, I am not at all happy with his mouth, but half of his face in the reference image is in deep shadow. I didn’t shade his face as darkly as it was in the photo, because I didn’t think it’d be as pleasing in the drawing (although the photo was amazing). So, I’m not thrilled with this one, but I’m glad I drew it, and I’m glad I continue to draw faces, even though I never know how one will turn out. I try to go into it with a “Here goes nothing” mentality, so that way, I’m never really going to be disappointed. Seems to be working out so far.
Thanks to all of you for guessing and giving so much positive feedback about my artwork; I can’t tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of you. Signing off for now.
