Willie Nelson Revisited by ronmonroe Willie Nelson Revisited by ronmonroe
This is my second attempt at Willie Nelson. I think a couple of months of practice has really helped.

Great portrait. I had tickets to see him this month and the tour was cancelled for health reasons. Hope he's OK.

Yep! My favorite song by him is, most likely A Horse Called Music, and the real funny thing is, I like them new Country artists, and I also like the oldies, weird... I just like all sorts o' Country I reckon, but yes, ya gotta love Willie! And he's what, 80 somethin? And he's still goin on tour! He's a toughie too!

Someday when i figure out how to buy stuff online I'd buy a print of this. Just cause Willie Nelson is awesome. Couple of months practice made you a pro dude.

Thanks. Willie is one of my favorites too. I don't have it open for prints because I'm worried about image copyright. I'm not sure how it all works, but I'd rather not take any chances.

I can't blame you man. That's a picture people would wanna try and take I'm sure. That's the only real beef I have with the net, plagerism and all that.

pens give a whole new feeling to drawings, and I do tend to prefer them over pencils. What you did here is taking that to a whole new amazing level. This is superb :clap:

Better likeness. You are right.
This is sort of perfect. I hate You for it...:D
No, You inspire and humble me, at the same time me.
yes, Iḿ somewhat jealous too. I admit it.....:D
I can never be as good as You.
I spread my strength in drawing, writing, and shooting straight.
I'ĺl be working abroad a bit for humanitarian protection.
Bad pay, but I'll get a nice tan....see some lions again...
I haven't touched a gun in ten Years.
Well, officially I was always a translator......:D
This time itś an official good cause. No hiding.
Still, carnying a AK47 makes me prime target.
Too old for that sneaky stuff.....:eyepopping:

I would ask You to draw a wolf.
I have, only one. Itś on DA.
See the movie "Grey" for inspiration, just a suggestion.
I included a link to a song....[link]
I just imagined You look like this dude.... :D
Iḿ probably wrong....:D
Sorry for this silly note.

Regards

Herbert

Thanks for the comment, Herbert, and good luck on your humanitian trip. Take some pictures of the wildlife! No need to be jealous, remember, I have to use a reference and you draw from the heart. I must not have a heart! lol I will do a wolf one of these days, or perhaps you will come back from your trip with some good wildlife photos you wouldn't mind letting me use. Stay safe.

I bet You can draw from the heart.
I know You have a very good memory.
Your writing is getting very much, better.
I compliment You on this. sincerely.
I know how hard this can be.
I know itś not so much a matter of intelligence,
But more a matter of self- confidence.
Our short communications mean a lot to me.
we are both growing, in different ways.
Iĺl be shooting people if I need to.
thatś my job...........
Iḿ afraid Iĺl have little time to watch the scenery.
But as I understand we have a photographer with us.
My first official security job in Africa.
Give the old fart a chance they must have thought....lol
keep up the good work my friend.
I will try and bring some good pictures back.

Bank note quality! WoooooooW! How can a human draw with such mathematical/geometrical precision? You can, that's admirable. Very good.
