Smoking Man- Commission by ronmonroe Smoking Man- Commission by ronmonroe
This was drawn for a friend of my brother. This was the only photo he had of his dad and ask me to draw it... so here it is. I have some wip's of the progres in my scraps if you are interested..[link].

This is one of the biggest drawings I have done. The total drawing is about 11" x 14".

Tools: art pen on smooth bristol.

I don't know. It kinda reminded me of an old time gambler, the group excepted it, so I guess they thought the same.

No, smooth bristol seems to work best with an art pen.

You got some skill to take a simple pen and make something this sophisticated. I can't imagine how long it took but good freakin job :0
