Jesse James

Jesse Woodson James (September 5, 1847 – April 3, 1882)
In his day, Jesse robbed stagecoaches about an hour-and-a-half east of where I live. Ever since I was little, I've always been fascinated by him and his legend.
Though I took some figure drawing courses in college twenty-years ago, I hadn't picked up a pencil in about two decades. After studying Hammond's and Hilberry's books, and being inspired by some of the great work here on the forum and on DA, I got the bug to start drawing again. This is my first portrait. Not perfect by any means, but I was fairly pleased with it, considering. Thanks for looking. Any comments/critiques welcome.

Re: Jesse James

It's a very nice piece of work :) If I had to critique I'd say his left eye looks a bit 'stare-ey'

Re: Jesse James

It does look very nice. I have to agree with CeeJay about the eyes.
Look at maybe shading the eye brows and shadows around the eyes just a LITTLE bit more or maybe closing the eyes just a tiny bit on the lower lids so the eyeball is not showing as much.
Whatever the issue is it is very small.

Great job overall though. :)

Re: Jesse James

Nice work Mike,watch how you erase (neck) looks like scratches..try blending in again afterwards,use a cotton face pad..will tone better.
