He looks great! You've captured my favourite early ElvisI saw the topic and was too scared to try, he's so iconic. I looked up smores too by the way and I think I'm moving over there! hehe

this is wonderful....I have always been an Elvis fan and you have done a terrific likeness....your father-in-law had good taste. Sorry I haven't been posting...life has been way too busy to get any new artwork done...it makes me sad...but maybe today I'll carve out some time to get to the background I collaged over the weekend. Thanks for checkin' on me :)

my process for real people is always starting with a sketch in pencil....but when I am doing some fun and free stuff I love living on the edge and doing it in ink from the beginning....makes it fun to see what comes out....
