This here is a handmade vision of Bob, so to speak. It’s the first time ever I attempted to draw him and I have to say, I’ve never put so much effort into a drawing. I feel like my head is about to explode, because I stayed up all night to finish it. It really is something quite special for me.

Having said that, I’d like to dedicate this work to someone I met exactly six months ago at a Dylan show. We got along so well in the beginning and had so much fun, and then I screwed everything up because … well, because I was an absolute idiot. I acted like a total jackass to her, not because I didn’t like her, but because I liked her just way more than I should have. I know she can’t forgive me, but, if she reads this, I would like her to know that I’m really sorry for my stupid behavior, and that I, that I miss her and all the fun we had before I ruined it all. So, yeah, this pic is for her.


that is a phenomenal drawing Railroad - nice use of tonal range - and nice work on the hands and face - the two most difficult parts. the shirt is fantastic too! you could probably push the shadows more, that may help getting some detail in the pants and making the hat fit on the chair more... Hope that girl gets to see this. but don't look for a clear answer either way...

my wife was very impressed when she found out I drew, and when i made my first drawing for her, she didn't receive the gesture well. i drew my front porch, a spot i often enjoyed and sat eagerly waiting her arrival when she would come to visit - and she later said about the drawing, 'you drew me a chair.' (She never heard of Kosuth apparently). luckily i married her, and now the drawing is mine again, and i can keep it in my own keepsake pile. (which she asks me to clean up from time to time)

i think the moral of the story is, if you develop your art and are less hung up on relationships....eventually the right person will stick around!

now, as for the rest of this thread activity - i may come back and visit - if we call for moratorium on quoting images of bob from the eighties with his chest showing...once is and was enough! the photographic record that it happened is excessive! reproducing the photograph is a crime upon society! perhaps you can reference it like....hairy chest number 1, or tight appendage number 35, etc....

I agree Railroad! Very nice effort. In the very near future I'll be posting some of MY drawings(as soon as I can figure out how) in the thread for personal art(incidently Railroad you should post this there. It's around the middle of the 2nd page of Off Topic at the moment).
Troubadour you sound a little knowledgable on art so I'll look foward to feedback from you.
You are correct hands and faces are the most difficult. I've drawn Dylan and will in the future(two of the drawings I mentioned above are of Dylan). I find with him the most important thing to get right are his nose and jawline.

Dear Troubadour...you can start your own non-chest picture thread :wink: The people that hunt for pictures on a daily basis get to choose which ones to post. :mrgreen: 8) :wink:

looking forward to it Jimb ! i'll be sure to check out that thread every once in awhile. perhaps i'll even take up a drawing or two myself this summer. it's been awhile....and i haven't done a dylan...


i don't mind the finding and the posting of chest pics....it's the quoting and reposting of chest pics that really gets to me....but why would i want to start a thread on something i don't want to see anyhow?? i'm just saying, i probably won't be by here again, that's all...especially now that i have the drawing thread to watch!
