Of course your drawing is good. But I'm interested in it because of what I've learned about Picasso. I don't think you ' almost ' captured the man. What I see is you have created a stunning example of what a twisted mind and irregular personality he had. I do love his blue and rose period- perhaps the depression he was in at the time gave him some much needed humility.

Wow this is fantastic!!! i love it!! expression in the face/eyes is so well done... and I love the 'unfinished' (yet finished) hand..... excellent added touch....
Posted by aashton on August 06, 2011
Thank you tatum! I kind of like that too, the unfinished yet finished hand, I was thinking of when Picasso did a rendering he left things out too. ;-)
