Very well done. What a shame that all of his success and good work (including humanitarian work that saved millions of lives) is eclipsed by his four years in office.

Interesting portrait of a man who was unfairly maligned by history. He was a bad president, but not a bad man (certainly not when compared to others who have held that office). Great work here with the colors and pencils. He may not have been a good president, but he certainly is an interesting subject!

Yea, he's proof that even an extremely intelligent man can be such a poor president. Awesome work, BTW. He does have a face that is very caricature-able.

:omg: Wow, It's really awesome! I like how you mixed colors up!:clap:

But did you use "oil rub and colored pencil"? How does it work? I've never heard about this technique :o

Wonderful intermixing of colors! This is freaking sweet, so much better than the commissioned portraits hung in municipal buildings.
