captain

i did this drawing in 2001 when i stumbled across this photo of my husband aiden. he looks like such a little boy, but soon after became a captain in the army.

And I also love that you said "captain, my captain". I love that movie!

It's a really well-done rendering, and the subtle colouring is great.

you really did an outstanding job on this! He looks so sweet, vulnerable and young! It does bring up a lot of emotion and you want to know this young man. Excellent!!!

there's a great looseness to the work (especially around the jaw) that really gives this caricature character. Great piece
