Omg! I was checking your gallery with the question in my mind "would this person maybe do a River portrait if I asked him to.. that would be a challenge".. and then I found THIS! Wow, thanks. I definately will fav+ this one. I think River is one of the most difficult one to draw because of his piercing eyes.

Well done. impresive tecnique.
How do you pencil artist manage to make such a detailed and complicated works, without filling the white paper with a cloud of graffite-dusty finger prints? Im amazed that it is even posible!

This is absolutely fantastic. Incredible likeness (not that I ever met the guy, but you know! ;)
I really like the way you've incorporated your signature so that it becomes the hem of the coat. Really great stuff. I can tell I'm going to like your gallery a lot already :XD:

The hair is excellent, so big and realistic! The shading on his face, well his whole face in general, is also fantastic. Really great piece.

I bet you he wishes now that he'd lived to upstage his brother ;) Or at least long enough for that hairstyle to have gone out of fashion :lol:

Seriously though. Beautiful stuff. I get a kick of how you worked your signature in :D
