I'm very intrigued by the fact that the only white on the whole page is his shirt. This is rather darker than most of your other pieces, but no less awesome.

Very nice Randy...I just read online that Spielberg (sp?) is going to do a movie about Lincoln. And Daniel Day Lewis is going to be the lead.

That should be good! When I read about it a few years ago, they were considering Niam Leeson; too bad they changed their minds. :(

wow this is awesome! i love his wrinkles, they look so timeless (wow that didn't sound cheesy at all). and the way the face is in focus and everything else kinda fades out, brilliant. though i think the crocked bowtie takes the cake in this one :D well done!

Oh my goodness! this is superb. it has an old, authentic feel to it. And you got Abe's mysterious, knowing look down pat. great drawing! :)

Thanks a lot! I know what you mean about the old feel; I'm not quite sure how it happened but am glad it did. :)

From time to time, I have to spend less than 15 hours on a drawing.

Awesome, I love the effect that the rough shading has on the piece as a whole. Great work on the proportions also.

Thank you very much! Value was the priority in this piece; I figured perhaps the brightness/cleanliness of his shirt would reflect some personality attribution or something. :)

Why do you have to draw things so well it makes me stare at them for hours?

Just kidding. It's only been a few minutes.

This is different from your usual stuff somehow. It's still really really good, just different. :/

Thanks! Yeah, normally I like to bring my drawings to more of a "finish", hiding most of the pencil marks and such. But this was done quite quickly (less than 3 hours) and it wasn't something I was really in to; just something to do. :)
