Martin Luther King Jr.

This looks good, especially the larger image on the right. The great thing about this one is that it looks like every part of the portrait got equal attention. Some of your other work has a tendency to have certain details like hair seem like a bit of an after thought and so they don't compiment the rest of the drawing. Another nice thing with this one which helps to puch the shape is the difference in line quality through out, especially on the outter edges of the face. If you look at your portrait of Mandela, there seems to be a dark outline around the entire drawing. This has a tendency to make it look flat, sort of like a coloring book illustration. Limit your darker (heavier) lines to form certain parts of the face, especially those in shadow. Then use thinner, even broken lines to flesh out more delicate fatures and areas that are in light. If you look at this drawing of Dr. King, the line of his forhead becomes almost invisible. This is good because it gives a sense of specularity. Based on your shading, that would definately be the feature that would catch and reflect the most light and so certain details would loose defenition. Looks good.

I really appreciate the detailed crits. My goal is to constantly improve in the Renaissance artist tradition of the great masters.

Thanks Cesar. Shawn won this round with his answer, "Nobel Peace Prize Winners" This is Martin Luther King Jr.
