Barack Obama finished


Just finished this in time for the election!
I'm travelling to India next week so I'll look out for some Fakirs to draw.

awesome work Richard, nice to see youve advanced your skills so much. I was almost going to criticize your initial sketch as lacking detail, but youve really arrived at being part of the A listers of out class.

Thanks Brad for the kind words. You should put something up on the blog yourself you know!

This is really funny. One thing I will mention, and I only note this because it is a pet peeve of mine, is that teeth are seldom so white (this may have been a choice on your part, so if it was, just ignore). I always find when drawing teeth, it is better to suggest the lines between them rather than draw then in one by one; they tend to look like piano keys when you do that. I added a bit of his flesh tone to the sides of his smile and softened the lines between the teeth, and I think they look a bit more natural.

Just my two cents...
Great job, I think this is very funny :)

Thanks for the nice comments folks .Thanks for the teeth painting tip, although he DOES have really white teeth, but then again he's a politician!
