Illo Friday: Scale

i was stunned this morning to find out that there was already 350 entries to this week's illustration friday. and gosh its only monday!! did i went awol that long?! my ttlb rank even fell to a microorganism! waah!

but while all the IF folks posted a fish scale or a weighing scale.. or something out of the ordinary.. a picasso-ish abstract, a playful kinder art, a graffiti, a growing mustache or whatnot, i thought of posting this old illo that is collecting micro dust from my archived files.

yeah it was suppose to be a reciprocal portrait but some people are just too busy (which includes me!)

so here yah go.. hope you can guess who this is before clicking the last image.

"portrait of a man named ..."
930 x 630 (orig.)
MS Paint

forever young.. well i was wondering too.. until i got this deal with him that he will draw me and i should draw him back. guess i was the first one who had time. but its nothing compared to his cool simpsonized avatar! hehe..

angela.. thanks! some of my friends tell me i should draw and earn something from it, but i guess i just do it for the love of it. and its nice to hear nice comments from great artists like you too! *hugs back*

To just think that this image is done in MS Paint is very impressive. And to think about the amount of time and effort being put into this is truly amazing.

Nice work you have here. Great job!
And anyways, thanks for the comments once again!

thank you! well most of my works here aRE done thru MS Paint.. that, i believe, is the closest thing to freehand.. and the time spent in using this medium is all worth it!

I saw your drawing from flickr and followed the link here. It's amazing that you did this on MS Paint. I can hardly draw anything there. I can imagine the amount of concentration you have placed into this. Bravo!

omg, he's a hunk. you've done a beautiful job.

i will never be able to do portraits. it's hard for me to even describe what a person looks like, let alone get them down on paper.

stunning work. you're brilliant, velvet. hats off, and braVA.
