    My best friend did this portrait of Willie Nelson for me about two years ago. I think it's so brilliant and I wanted to share it with other artists on TPF......

    Thanks, I'll tell him that you liked it.

    He used lead, black ink and white paint.

    For the people who might not know who Willie Nelson is he's a country and western singer (and advocate of free speech) from texas and he's in the new 'Dukes of Hazzard' movie playing Uncle Jesse.

    And also in Jessica Simpson's "music" video (read: masturbatory material). Why Willie why? Not that it should come as a surprise by now.

    But I digress... that is one great portrait, very lifelike :thumbup:



    ... just can't help thinking it should have "Coca-Cola" tattooed across the forehead :razz:

    Thanks for your comments. It is a really amazing drawing and I feel very honoured that it's mine.

    He has done two other Willie Nelson portraits and he let me have these photographs of them to show you.

    This one was for his Dad about three years ago

    and this one he actually did for Willie Nelson himself and took it to him at a concert earlier this year.

    I still like mine best though!

    He's got a lot of talent, that's awesome! I wish I could draw like that... my style is so different though. It seems that with his style he can express himself a little more, while I tie myself rather rigidly to the rules of a photograph.
