Here is a portrait of my Dad I have been working on forever it seems. This is being done thru the D/S forum's Classroom-Class 33-Realistic Male Portraiture.
I had some trouble knowing what the uniform looked like as I was working from a 2" 1951 newspaper clipping. Luckily I found a pic of the dress uniform he would have been wearing at a local museum here. This is my rendition so far from this photo from the time when he recieved his Distinguished Service Cross. He is gone now over two years, but he will be my hero forever.
I am presently working on his clothing going left to right and more work on his mouth is needed yet.
Not the best photo-but those are my camera skills.
.5 Mech pencil, approx 13"h X 9.5"w
