A drawing of a man being hopeful in hard time.
I love the somber mood and solemn tone, gaelcaron. I can feel a sense of hope, cause I can totally identify with this rendering of yours. If I could give you some very good advice, then it would be to please lighten up your touches, by loosely sketching out 40 30-second poses of faces and expressions. Would you please go with that???
The reason why you could do that is because, it could and would help you out on making your faces and expressions less stiffer, and more fluider and livelier, even the most restrained facial expression. My hat's off to you, stay safe and stay gold.
