    Is that Stephen King? What's it say in the Japanese?

    If you don't mind the comparison, the texture on his face reminds me of Frank Quitely's style: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...93833330df.jpg

    FantasyArtist : Thanks so much!

    Appreciate the tips on dynamic poses both here and in your sketchbook. I'll definitely check out Keane...I have a friend who names him as a big inspiration too.

    Thanks again...I will.

    Tiggeraz: Sexy! I like that description.

    I wanted to give that pic kinda an old black and white photo look...or a monotone silvery blueish look. Somewhere in my memory banks I remember seeing old world war II photos with that look along with hand tinted reds. That's what I was going for.

    Anywho...thanks for the comment and encouragement

    diamandis: No — although I can see that resemblance now that you mention it. He was just some guy from my imagination. : )

    The larger script at the bottom says "Faith Love Hope" and the ribbon/banner says "watchman" and "peace." At least I hope so because I used a Kanji translation on-line and bing translator to try to confirm what I wanted to say.

    When I was a kid we had a Japanese exchange student stay at our house. He tried to teach me how to write in Japanese. Later I worked hard on a "letter" to him — when I showed it to him he burst out in laughter. DERP

    Thanks to the link for Frank Quitely. I'd never heard of him or seen his work but I can totally see similarities between what we do.

    In fact I'll start with an older digital painting that really drives that home IMO:

    ^ ^ ^ Same here. Struggled a lot more with this one — probably because of the tilt of her head. I might work on this one some more

    ^ ^ ^ I posted this photo study once here already but decided to delete it — refine it and post it again.

    ---------------------

    BTW — I did all those pastels in public at restaurants and coffee houses etc. People often come over and talk to me while I'm pencil sketching — but I get a lot more attention from people when I use the pastel pencils and a lot more people are asking me to do commissions for them. I have to get better at "closing those deals." !!!

    ^ ^ ^ A digital study from a prohibition era colorized photo. This guy was some kind of official watching a big barrel of alcohol being poured out onto the street by two guys. I wonder what he was thinking??
