Re: Waiting

Looks a little like homeless Mike except he had a wandering eye. I did him some time ago but didn't include the hand. Anyway, nice job on this.

Please do it and let us see your rendition. I love all the "homeless" photos on Pixabay. It makes me realize how thankful I am for my blessings. I really wish I knew the life stories of them. They would have a lot of interesting experiences. They have really lived and earned every wrinkle on their faces.

Re: Waiting

Quite arresting. I think you've stopped just short of overworking it. It retains enough of the pencil marks to remain interesting.
