    Would anyone like to look at one of my sketches?

    I'm quite shy about my drawings, so go easy on me!

    Oh, WOW, I like it! A lot!
    Very stylistic. I'm impressed. Reminds me of the work of Bill Plympton in a way.

    Great work, TM!

      I like it... obviously I'm no expert, but there's a definite sense of depth there, and texture, and it all seems very real. I can't really explain what I mean by that, but the proportions are spot-on... um... you can probably tell I've never studied art appreciation. All I know is that if I sat down to sketch an old man's head, and I produced that picture, I'd be very proud of myself. Who/what was it based on?

      I'd be curious to see more of your work... so don't be shy! This forum needs you!! :)

      Edit: Ooh, I was going to mention Plympton too, but I wasn't sure how obscure he was!

            Thanks everyone! :D

            I like Bill Plympton's stuff, so I'll take that comparison as a compliment! I agree that the philtrum looks off-centre, probably just me being sloppy. The drawing was based on a picture of a Roman bust, but I altered it quite a lot.

              :oops: I removed that comment anout the philtrum because I started to feel bad about it. It really is a good piece. Funny that you caught it before I deleted it.

                I don't know Plympton...but your sketch is very nice indeed.

                Who is the person? Or just imagined?

                  Thank you! :D

                  You've probably seen a few "Plymptoons" without even knowing it. Here's his website:

                    Your sketch is excellent, TM, but the title of the thread makes me giggle in a girly 1920's way ('Come and see my etchings....') :lol:

                    Doesn't take much to set me off...
