I saw a thumbnail on the home page and I was like "oh my God, Johnny Cash!!". I love all of your drawings, you have a great gift. I especially love the Johnny Cash one and the Charles Bukowski one. I love how the Bukowski one is sort of cartoony but just so realistic at the same time.

I really like how they all have the same type eye. It's like your trademark. I especially love Johnny.

I love the way you do eyes. There's so much emotion there, especially in the drawing of Johnny Cash.
Fabulous job!

Thank you sooo much, everyone, for the positive feedback!  Grin Charcoal is my favorite medium, and I love to draw people -- especially portraits!

bloomingkinder - yes, I definitely do portraits for people.   Smiley
