this is a great picture. Amazing shading, and it does him justice. The facial features are excellently done, and every detail seems to stand out. All in all, a wonderful drawing. Being a Chesty fan, I must say this is something worthy of framing and hanging on a wall somewhere important. I mean, really-- you have captured his "grit" and personality in the expression, which is priceless. I would actually pay to buy this. You even made the eagle, globe and anchor emblems look absolutely realistic. A darn good portrait of a darn fine Marine! Keep up the good work and oorah!
A worthy render of one of our nations fines. Got drunk one night with Lee Ermy at the Staff NCO Club in SDIEGO (many years ago now...) He told me a story about this man, tough as nails. Whew, was a while back! The man was all GRIT!!
