The Indian General

Chief Pushmataha - Choctaw. Started on this commissioned piece yesterday. I wouldn't have started another one of him but... I was commissioned by a relative of his. He was her 6x Great Grandfather. How could I say no to that... 18X24



Thanks for lookin'.

Re: The Indian General

Very nice. I am led to the eyes. Great job on making one in shadow and one in the light.

Thanks, but it's far from finished... haven't gotten to that eye yet. Or that side of the face.

Re: The Indian General

Such a powerful portrait already. And what an honor it must be for you to be commissioned by this man's 6th great-granddaughter! Excellent work, and I can't wait to see the finish.

Re: The Indian General

Another super drawing. Your characters have such presense and are full of feelings.
