Very good caricature. I love to see, how the small exaggerations or distortions of the face features serve the personality to be expressed even more clearly. :cool:

I'm not sure I know him, but he looks familiar and I also have the impression You got perfectly both his likeness and expression. Your style is now a really personal griffe!

I remember the comedy team of Burns and Allen. George Burns and Gracie Allen. they had a very old black and white tv series in the fifties and they were actually married. He has starred in movies including the Oh God series. drank and smoked cigars and lived to a pretty ripe old age. great likeness! great job.

Outstanding job! For those that are not familiar with George Burns, if you are lucky enough to run across the reruns of their tv show from the 50s, the exchanges between George and wife Gracie, are absolutely hilarious. :D :D :D

excellent character in the expression and eyes... love the texture of ancient skin.... I guess I am dated when I can claim to have watched the original Gracie and Allen skits in B&W tv...:o
