Artwork Description

Referenced from a black and white photograph of Frank Frazetta. The face went through a lot of burnishing for that skin like look. Left the cloth nice and rough for that nice and rough feel. I used watercolors for the background

This is beautiful, Denny! You have acheived a great sense of skin tones... and you can almost feel the material. Beautiful, indeed.
