It's Finished!

This is quite possibly my favorite portrait yet. This one was a big challenge for many reasons.

Sit back, relax, and listen to my litany of woes:

• Reflections in the sunglasses
• Dark skin with a rainbow of colors reflected in it
• Beard with white hairs

Okay. I'm done whining. This one was on the board for almost two months. I'm still not 100% convinced that it's finished, but it's pretty close...

It was a big challenge, but I'm happy with the results.

Okay, so I had all sorts of nice things to say about your portrait, but then I got to the bottom of your post. Two months? Oh poor baby.

I did it so quickly because I didn't have to paint eyelashes!
