Well, I FINALLY finished this! It wasn't because it was too difficult, but because I've had so much business in the past 6 weeks, and I've either been too busy, or too tired Also, I recently got a new computer and decided to get Modern Warfare games, which I love. Another reason, is that I had finished this all the way to the hair and hand, the 2 things I enjoy drawing least. Anyway, it's TOO large for my scanner, so I had to use a digital camera. I will get a better show one day, and replace this, because it is not 100% in focus to see the details. This was the best shot out of about 50 so good enough

I've had the reference photo of this saved for over a year. I loved the highlights and the challenge with his hair and the "negative space" work required. I'm still too impatient to do it correctly, but this is the best I can do for now.
