Very nice ink for someone who hasn't done a lot of ink work :D:)
Not sure who it is, but I'm thinking a musician??

PS: Just commented on your horse drawing in the New User forum :D

Thanks for looking, you guys!
Danny-you're right, it's Kurt Cobain. i found a picture of him online, and changed ot from grayscale to just black and white, and went from there. i wasn't sure how accurate it would be...

Quite accurate. You caught something special in his eyes. That is how I could tell it was him. :)

"Don't draw for the people who look at your art and see a good drawing, draw for the people who look at it and see what you can do to make it even better."

I like your quote, but sometimes a little praise can help a person grow too. :)

Thanks, drwells and jakeally! (i agree about the quote, too; i just thought it was interesting, because most kids tend to look for praise instead of critique. i'd never thought of it like this before...)

It's beautiful, I reckonised Kurt Cobain right wawy, it is something in the eyes that you captured. Something soulful and lost.

Dare I say, I wouldn't recognise him? Shameful from a Washingtonian, I know. My cousin was at his, um, wedding- only thing that ranks me as a true Washington native:D
Great drawing, though!
