Here is the finished piece, which will be added to the Fan Submissions section with the next art update. I am adding it here because according to Dennis, the next art update probably won't be until January. Thanks again for all of your previous comments, they are much appreciated!
"Chuck" October 7, 2007
pastel on paper
9 x 11"
I just mostly finished this portrait of Chuck a few minutes ago. There are still a few minor details to tweek, but not much I don't think. I will post it to the other Fan Submissions after I get a chance to get a good photo during the day with a tripod and all that fanciness.
The colors are a bit off because of the lighting, but its pretty close.
