Very, very cool.
I've tried drawing Tom a few times but gave up. I think my main problem is that I can't find decent pictures of him to reference.

Yeah, I did that too, lol!

I've got a ton of pics if you want to give it another shot :)

But to be honest, none of them are that good that I reference either, most are actually terrible quality, lol!

It's very annoying to go image searching. Most of the pics are super small, bad quality, or just don't inspire me for drawings. Maybe someday I'll give Petty another go, though...

At the moment, I'm absorbed with a Michael Palin portrait.
I love Monty Python. Checking out your gallery, I noticed that you're a fan too. :)

Yeah, it is. The best places to look are fan sites though, not just google and stuff.

I could share some if you'd like to give him another go, lol...

Lol! I've drawn Michael before ^_^ I love Monty Python too.

Yeah, I know about fan sites being best.
And maybe I'll take you up on it sometime if I'm stuck for a pic; just not at the moment.
I've got to be in a 'Petty' mood, you know?

Monty Python is brilliant.
I've been watching all the Flying Circus episodes in order. :)

Do you HAVE to be so skilled? lol! This reminds me of a velvet painting that would look good over a sofa. Nice job!

Well done. The shading is great in it's simplicity, if you could call it that. X'D It turned out wonderful.

I think you did a really nice job on this. The little details are great, like in his hair and on his vest, yet you used the simplicity of him fading into the pure black background. For the amount of time spent on it, I think it turned out good. :)

wow, thank you so much for the very lovely comment!! :)

I usually take longer on realistic-ish drawings xD But this one was meant to be a bit more sketchy so...yeah. :)

You're most welcome. :dance:
I think the sketchy-ness is what drew me to it. :D 3 hours is impressive to me, considering it'd take me at least 5 hours to do 3 strands of hair, haha.

I'm glad it drew you in~!!

I was afraid it would look as if I cheaped-out or something!

It's all worth it in the end tho :)
