No, I'm serious Ken. Put this one next to your last two and try to see them objectively. You're on a roll!! :)

End of first pass...five hours of struggle today on that right side...mostly with getting the levels correct...but also getting the textures to match ...at least somewhat.... :)
Will not look at doing adjustments/corrections....not certain I'll change anything but we'll see...


anyway...

Love it Kenny!! :D :D :D I'd say it's your best....so far that is!

You know, if you ever wanted to put together a tutorial on how to draw different fabric textures, I'm sure it would be very popular! The hat, the jacket, the jacket lining and scarf are all expertly done especially when it comes to the way the shadows shape the folds.

Thank you Laurene! I have so much to learn about textures, but yes I kind of enjoy drawing making them.
Don't know I could put any of it into words, but will promise you that I'll think about it and perhaps put something together for the future. :)

Wow, I love those eyebrows Kenny, wonderful! I cant see why you wouldn't do just as good a job on the shirt as you have done with the rest.

Ooops, missed the second page. A fantastic finish. Love it! Agree with what Laurene has said about your ability with different textures, great stuff!

Thank you Bev! I'm pleased with the result...am standing by for any corrections/changes but think they will be minor.

Appreciate your support!
