say "Hi" and then "goodbye" to my new doomed-to-remain-in-the-closet-forever project, a graphic novel (???) based on the life and works of bohemian writer Franz Kafka ( :heart: ). This is like a cover, lol, or a random image, done for the sake of it, yeah.
I'm sure you won't find NOTHING of the original Kafka's feature in this thing XD and I have to say that drawing a human face from this perspective is like one of the most difficult things ever, for me, with or without a reference!@_@
full view, please.

watercolor + collage on paper

(comunque, ora so perchè avevo quel bell'album da acquerello nuovo nuovo, conservato amorevolmente nel cassetto... è pessimoooo!)

I would totally read a graphic novel based on the life and works of Kafka. If you EVER decide to do that, I would be so thrilled. This is beautiful. I would love to see more Kafka inspired art! There isn't nearly enough out there.

I agree!!! I still wish someone more talented and good than me will come out with a Kafka's grafic novel, sooner or later!:D

I like it allot. I always envisioned Sherlock Holmes as looking sort of like this. This will help me for drawing him now.
