    Red face

    Thanks Coops and Eighty+
    I made this because is one of the first exercises in the book titled "drawing on the right side of the brain". Thanks to both for the compliment for my eyes!

    P.S.
    Eighty+ you think that my next hair style is like that of Yul Brynner?! ;D

    Caro Marco, vedo che ti sei fatto addirittura un busto!
    Immagino che sei partito dal tubetto. Immagine molto vivida.
    Mi viene da ridere a pensare che Eighty+ ti ritiene una rarità qui per via del colore degli occhi (credo peraltro che verde prato irlandese non sia comune nemmeno dalle parti sue). Presumo che lui ritenga che qui siamo tutti piccoli, neri, con tanto di baffi e mandolino ...
    Panta rei (everything flows)!

    Yep could be Marco but wants shaving every morning and then polishing

    plus you want to be at least 6ft 6" if you feel like treading in his footsteps

    so best of luck and bash on regardless

    hi Marco looking back at your portrait, I see you shown great Detail

    which must have taken a fair time, the hair alone makes me shudder,

    and eyelashes plus nose and ear look perfect congrats, are you in

    your teen's ?? as the mind boggles to what you'll be churning out next

    I've also got the book but I'm left-handed anyway, the right keeps

    trying to get in on the act, but the left keeps knocking him down

    Hi Marco, nice portrait, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain was the first book I read when I was taking oil art lessons in Florida, very good book

    Marco... a great self portrait.. you captured the skin tones as well. which is difficult not to make too pink.. especially the lips.. Drawing on the Right Side was also one of my favorite books and taught me alot about drawing...
