    "Uh thank you a-very much. . ."

    Well, we won't have a Blue Christmas now that he's front and center via your drawing.

    Yeah, I think somebody like Elvis, it's tricky getting it right if you're not exaggerating broadly. He's such an icon and many people adored how he looked and studied every facial feature when they were teenagers or whatever. If you go really silly or hammy, it's easier because people know it's not supposed to be photographic. Or at the other end of acceptability is to do a straight portrait. But including a slight bit of exaggeration probably has to conform with how he sits in people's mind's eye for them to jump up and say "EXACTLY!".

    It's one of the reasons I resist doing portraits for family members. I rarely know how to look inside people's heads and get to how they think they look in order to please them.

    He's a very good one to experiment with because everybody knows him.

    This is pretty good though, in this case I agree with you that a couple adjustments might help. But were it anyone else it would be perfect as it is.

    You're doing great with these. Very fun to look at your parade of celebrity.

    Striking resemblance, now the only thing missing is a gretsch

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)
