I'm not usually one to post my artwork unsolicited, but I put a couple early stages of the drawing on here before and I figured a community like this would appreciate a latter day Dylan portrait more than the general public.

Wow, most of us can only type nonsense, and even that not well. Nice work!

Did you start this from scratch or did you use the photo as base?

Thanks for the kind comments, everybody. I've been known to type nonsense too!

Yep, it's from scratch or hand drawn, but I worked very closely from a reference photo.

Amazing!

Truly excellent - I really like the textures and the use of shadow.

Five stars.

It looks more lifelike than the original photo! Could you post a larger version of your avatar, which I think is excellent too? Is there a photo to compare it with?

The avatar's a stipple portrait from the Wall Street Journal.

Seriously, I thought it was a photograph and even when you posted it in the "draw Bob" thread I thought "why is this guy posting a photograph of Bob?" :lol:

Very cool! I always say that's the best compliment. Funny thing is, I can't draw impressionism at all. I could never do that stipple thing.

Thanks again, everybody.

Holy smokes! That's amazing. I too thought it was just a photo. How long did it take to do?
