Hola a todos. Ya he finalizado un nuevo encargo. Rory Blackburn, un ex piloto de la USAF me solicitó un retrato y tuvo la suficiente paciencia para esperar por el dibujo, puesto que tengo una larga lista de espera. Bueno, aquí está el resultado de unas cuantas horas de trabajo.



Curiosidad, nótese que él es muy alto (2 metros).

Espero que les guste. Un saludo.
