Charcoal sketch of Einstein, which took about an hour and a half of drawing. He has the most distinctive face, doesn't he? This is from a photo I saw in a magazine clipping; it's not one of those which you commonly see, I think. He looks slightly dignified for Einstein.

Please note the γ in the formula. Poor Lorentz must be weeping in his grave - he is ever so neglected by popular culture. Not everything is a rest mass, people!

Wonderful sketch!

Yes, Lorentz has been "neglected by popular culture" like most great scientists. People like Einstein, Feynman, and Sagan are the exception rather than the rule.

I do like your appropriate use of the gamma factor, and I also like this relation: E^2 = (pc)^2 + (mc^2)^2, where p is the linear momentum, of course.

"Not everything is a rest mass," indeed!

Thank you! I hope this will change, though, so that even laymen (laypeople?) like myself will be able to name more scientists than just the usual Newton, Einstein, Galileo, Darwin etc. group, and realise how awesome science is. Seeing the derivations for equations like "E^2 = (pc)^2 + (mc^2)^2" was staggeringly cool for me.

It's true. ;_;

Hee, thanks. I really can't hold up a candle to the master of chiaroscuro, though.

Einstein! Yay!

Can you do Neils Bohr next?

I was thinking Tesla next, actually.

I have said it before and I will say it again many times over... You are amazing!

He does look rather dignified here, doesn't he? Really great drawing :)

Thank you (again)! :) It's quite a change from tongue-sticking-out Einstein, isn't it? Not that I don't love Einstein's sense of humour, but he ought to have some at least mildly dignified moments.

You are very welcome (again)! :XD:

I think I like both sides of Einstein equally, though I am very use to that huge poster of him in the science labs, lol

"Please note the γ in the formula" - You've just made my day XD
Nice job with the sketch, too.

Now what's wrong with Albert Einstein? *worship worship worshi-* Oh, that's what's wrong with me. He deserves it, though.
