Inward and Outward Appearances

There are days where I just want to crawl into a dark corner, be very quiet and hope that nobody will find me there.

There are also days where I want to have a pair of cymbals with me to wake everybody up and scare the bejeezus out of the colleague currently slumped over in a dark corner. He's occupying my spot, after all.

Drawing Notes

After my futile attempt to actually create a recognizable portrait of Anthony Quinn, I learned my lesson and decided to trace Mr. Connery's face from a photograph and then add glasses. The body was drawn from scratch, however, not traced.

Tracing may sound easy, but if I learned one thing during the multiple Cleeses it's that even when you trace, you have to make sure you choose the right lines and leave out whatever you can get away with.
