Simon is finished!

I've finally finished Simon's portrait! I just need the ok from the client and it's ready to go!

8 x 10 Coloured Pencil

Simon's name is actually printed in his collar, very lightly. Unfortunately you can't see it in the scan, but it is visable on the original.

This was the last of my commissions, so I'm quite excited to be done! I think I'll probably take a short break and then hopefully I'll have some new stuff to show you all. Thanks for looking!
