Drawing and Finish




Here's the Drawing. I tried to stay pretty close to the thumbnail as far as the composition went.When I went to color I wanted a pretty limited palette. I figured McCain was going to be in the shadows and I didn't want alot of color distracting from him.
This piece went pretty fast. A day or two for the drawing ( likenesses are always tricky) and the about 4 days to paint.

This is sweet sweet nice! I know I typed sweet twice. It's my new thing. I'm stealing it from the show Psych...because I have no shame.

Nice composition and nice use of the limited palette. Also...nice likeness. It doesn't look like it was tricky at all. You get a gold star!

That's quite possibly the scariest McCain I've ever seen, but strangely he is still adorable.

Your blog is great and it's always nice coming back seeing new work!
