This is kind of an interesting portrait, for those of you who know about Lars... if you know, KNOW, please don't mention it here nor spoil it for anybody else, why this portrait is interesting... if that makes sense. I have always avoided illustrating him for those reasons and well I figured now is a good time as ever. I think I struggle with him, because he is such a complex character, and knowing what he is about is tricky. Plus there is the right model and how to convey what I need you to see. I worked extra hard on this one to get the hair to look like hair. I really like the rough "brush" strokes I am using. I personally like it when a photomanipulation becomes an illustration. I fiddled around with extreme highlights with this one. By the way, for those of you reading the book, this is Lars in Prof. Diff's office.
