Dan Dennett

This will be my last post for a while, a few months maybe. As of this weekend I am officially homeless, in a good way. A man without a country. I've packed up my things and starting on a voyage unknown. New places to explore, new people to meet and adventures to have.

Below are a couple progress shots of this portrait, I tried to use a more traditional approach.
And this was perhaps the first time I went from start to finish without checking the tone with a desaturation level. I'm going to assume this is just a fluke that I got it right, at least until I can reproduce the result without relapse.

About to head off on another adventure, so it's time to make a post and start drinking as per my tradition. I've only two half bottles of white wine, but they should suffice.

I'm a big Pratchett fan, I've either read or listened to every Discworld novel he's published. And have re-read some of them 2 or 3 times. Nigel Planer makes a brilliant Rincewind in the audiobook series, so good that every time I read one of the Discworld novels I hear his voice in my head.

It's a pity they didn't use him for the role in the movies, because I think he's physically perfect for the role too. Of course I'm also a big Young Ones fan.
