Recently, I was in the mood to work on some character related art (portraits, etc) -- and take a small break from landscapes (which have been my sole focus the past 6-8 months)

This was a piece that I created a few years ago.. but always bothered me and I wanted to someday return to working on. So, I resurrected this and spent a few days reworking areas -- with re-painting certain areas to adjusted contrast/saturation/hue of various areas (background, face, etc)

I also decided to make the beard/shirt area read as a solid, dark graphic..

Here is the new artwork:
