My hat's off to you for drawing Schwarzenegger accurately and awesomely- you really nailed that macho action hero charisma a lot of people saw on the silver screen during the '80s-'90s, from the sly smirk, to the huge muscles, the spiked-up short hair, and right down to the lit chomped cigar- kudos!

You caught the lights and shadows of skin tone very nicely, and I like how the outline of the shirt stands out from the rest of Arnold- the mix of colors work well against the color of the paper, too. I also like how you signed this piece.

His dude is a treasure. He's one person who I just find it fucking impossible to hate or dislike.
