Kurt Cobain - ' Read My Eyes '


Here's a great news article [link] about Kurt Cobain written by :iconjuchise:

Thanks to :iconportraitpencilart: for setting up these great contests, it's nice to be part of a club, it doesn't matter where I come, what matters is taking part and being inspired by and inspiring other artists.

If a copy would cheer up a wall then please take one, ( the full sized image is watermark free ).

My friend- 
this is a perfect picture. I see absolutely no imperfections or things that I advise you to change. 
Pastels create the perfect atmosphere for such a wonderful piece, making it smooth and creamy. The touches of color you've added are absolutely brilliant . It seems completely identicle  to the picture I believe you were trying to copy. Everything unbelievably  blends together in such a soft focus, and that's what makes this piece special and beautiful.
