I am completely, totally at a loss for words! It's beautiful! Stunning! Awesome! And you might want to insert some explitives in front of those adjectives (I think that's what those words are called )

Hey there, this is excellent work as we all know, however I do have one humble question. Your light source is very confusing to my eye. It appears that the light is coming from some point in front of and a bit above Joseph, but the light settling on his shirt and neck tells me a different story and seems unfinished. Is this done on purpose???? I would hate for a piece so well executed to be left with a glitch.

Ciao, Bryant

Thankyou to each and every one of you. I appreciate the time you all took to to look and comment.

My friend who took the photo of Joseph in Jamaica, liked it very much and is emailing him with the picture to see how he likes it.

Bryant, The light source is supposed to be coming from behind him and the shirt was left like that on purpose.

Does this seem confusing to anyone else??

Bob H. Thankyou, kind sir, and I will look into publishing this one. BTW, the transfer paper I use is called Charcopaper, and I use the white. It's like carbon paper except it has white charcoal on it. Comes in black, too.

Thankyou all again, and for sending others to look, too.

Thumbs up

You are an incredibly accomplished artist, lorna. This piece absolutely comes alive with each step. You have chosen an interesting character for your pose, and his character definitely shows in your finished piece. I have to say, that it seemed like he was quite real from about the second stage, I think. Kind of like he was peeking out from behind a blanket or something.
Anyway, congratulations on a wonderful piece of art!
