The Man in Black

I tried to sketch Johnny Cash. It's ok, but not as good as I would like. I like the way his crooked mouth and chin show. I think what I like best is the way the undulations in his skin appeared beneath my pencil. The Man in Black is definitely an icon for the ages.


  1. I recognized him right off! Great portrait!

  2. Me too. Immediately recognition.
    Nice job.

  3. This one I recognized directly even if I couldn't come up with his name just as soon.

    I think you've captured mouth's gesture of Mr. Cash very well. I also like your old 1953 Chevy! Nice that you use different techniques. Watercolors with ink is a nice one.
