This cheeky little fellow, with his trending hair style and bright, dreamy eyes, just stole my heart. Based on reference photo provided by Tina Slavina on PaintMyPhoto. Pastel on Uart 800 grit, approx 9x12"

Those eyes just grab your attention and won't let go! I do like the punk hair style, it adds a bit of humor.

Wow, those eyes!!! You did a great job with them.

Karenand Jay, thank you so much! It is always in the eyes, isn't it? They just draw us into the depths of any of God's creatures.

I'd like to see a different background on this, to contrast more with his colors, but you've done a great job on him!

Blayne, I appreciate hearing your thoughts very much, thank you. Background choices can be so very difficult, can't they? I may play around with some ideas in photoshop a bit and see if a different bg might work out better.

Wonderful. No thoughts on background. The eyes pop and call attention to face so I didn't pay any attention to the background. That may be a sign that it works. I always struggle with backgrounds. Pam :wave:
