    I never heard of Zhaoming Wu before. Damn, he's got some amazing art at his website. His portraits and drawings are awesome. Thanks for the link. And that portrait does look like Carl Dobsky.

    hot damn, this dude has stunning works... colours are drop dead gorgeous, edge control amazing....

    thanks for sharing, and I think the only thing that really makes it look like Dobsky are the spectacles...

    It's actually my outfit I wear when I listen to yacht rock. Zhaoming and I were sharing a special moment together going through each others record collections when he became inspired to paint this picture of me. And thank you very much for making light of it ASSHOLES!

    You should do a portrait of him dressed as Tenniel.
