Neil Diamond - Solitary Man by Doctor-Pencil Neil Diamond - Solitary Man by Doctor-Pencil
I finally finished this! I started it weeks ago! It took me a while, because I could not find an inspirational photo! My dad has a friend who is a Neil Diamond impersonator, who actually knows the REAL Neal Diamond and is going to give him this original :D:D which is why I signed it Rick Fortson, so he would know who I am, ha!

I remember my dad playing him on the vinyl record version back when I was a kid. He was slightly before my time, but who hasn't sang along with him? :D I do love his voice and songs!

Size: 6.5 x 5.5 inches
Time: about 6 hours
Bristol Smooth with HB, F, B, 2B and 3B
Spray sealed (as always) with Krylon's "Workable Fixative"

The UN-enlarged view is the actual size of the drawing. View Enlarged for details?

This might just be your best Rick.. All your Bristol Smooth work is freakin' awesome, so it's hard to say what THE best is! The details here are just so good, the eyes and hair stand out to me, even the abstract background is cool.

Great work dude, this is an easy fave!
