Earth tones are always great choice for quirky portraiture, this is one of the strongest pieces in your gallery for sure. All of the lines defining the features "under eyes etc." really give it a bit of an eerie manic feel to it. Really nice work, there's just something about it that obviously seems to draw people to it? 21 favorites, not bad at all mate'.

I did them from the top of my head, so they are really only sketches :)

I really enjoy this type of work. If I ever can afford to maintain my artistic life I would do a series in this fashion.

Thanks :)

It comes across as very urban...

Urban? I think I know what you mean. But I would be interested at what you have to say. :)

urban, city life... hiphop maybe... but darker of course... the reds, yellows and browns...

I don't know quite how to say it... it's more of a feeling that comes across on the parataxic level...

Very intense. That's what came to mind first. The repetion is powerful. The strong darks are powerful. And the cluster of equally-thick lines is very powerful.
