This is a memory sketch from this past weekend in San Diego at the beach. I looked to my right and the realities of old age hit me. Be grateful for my youth right now and enjoy. This guy was walking as slow as a snail. Not only did it hit me that I have to excercise but also keep my back straight while I draw. But then again, when you're old you're old.

awwww - this pic makes me a little sad. Excellent job with the feel and characterization! You did a good job getting your emotions into the piece

Brilliant! The expression on his face is dead on . . . I've seen that look a lot on the older folk, it says . . . I think I can, I think I can, I think . . . .awe forget it, who gives a crap! Awesome work man!

I also have to say that the characterization of this character was really nicely done. (Whoa... I said "Character" two times in a sentance. How *original* was that? XD ) It almost seems like he was based off of an actually exsisting guy!
