    What great BW styles you have! I don't think I have seen a picture of him so young. Knowing his story, it adds a ton of "spin", where his calm exterior belies a very active mind.

    Thanks!
    I went all-in with the "Drip Spread" on the Airbrush-tool for this one... It's a real neat setting when doing things like this
    Yeah, I was actually able to dig some reference photos up, from a few of my books on him .. I remember looking at them, long time ago, as I was studying his life, was I totally taken in by how scruffy, but still charismatic, he looked in those old photos.
    An interesting person ... to say the least!

    Crowley is not my favourite human being but it's a really fine portrait. I see you've made him blond :-)

    Quote outstanding. Remarkable control with the Air Brush Drip Spread. Terrific work.

    The spotted effect is really intriguing, and such a good portrait!

    Thanks everybody...
    And yeah, despite what one might think of the man (don't get me wrong, I do NOT see he as a likable person) - he dud have a great impact on the whole occult scene, so much that people is still basing a lot of their work on his writings. Without Mr Crowley, Gerald Gardner would probably never had written the Wiccan doctrines etc.

    Thanks AT-TA, I don't think it has much to do with geography, or place you live, but probably more what interests you. If you in anyway study modern occultism, you will find that its virtually impossible to read a book without someone mentioning Aleister Crowley at some point.
