|victor is a vet (18"X14.5")|
in looking at this now, i think that i accomplished what i set out to do, namely, keep the lower portion a higher value and less defined. i am less happy with the face but with this hot press paper i am afraid to fool around with it too much so i think i will have to leave well enough alone. furthermore, it seems to me at least that it conveys what i wanted which is that there is a feeling of isolation (and a little despair?) in the figure. i will leave you the viewer to be the ultimate judge. and, no, i don't know what this fellow's name really is and i seriously doubt it is victor. having already decided he was a veteran, the alliteration seemed just to clever to avoid.
