This is the first in a series of prizes I'm awarding to the winners of the latest contest at
First place went to ~trenchWeasel
and you should all go check out their gallery!
The requested prize was of Buster Keaton in his famous porkpie hat. I must admit, all I knew about Buster Keaton before this piece came from the movie Benny and Joon
where Johnny Depp acts like Buster Keaton. AKA nothing.
This was a fun portrait to do--the grayscale was more challenging than I thought it would be. He also has extremely delicate features for a man, which I found really interesting.
I hope you like it, ~trenchWeasel
! Second and third prizes are coming soon!I'll remove the watermark if the prize-winner okays it, so I hope it doesn't bother people too much!
