Izzy by Adoradora Izzy by Adoradora
Quick Photoshop colouring exercise. The gentleman with the silver nose and disturbing smile is Isidore 'Izzy' Perizene, a sort of showbiz agent and impresario in the P.T. Barnum mould, although -- unlike Barnum -- a spectacularly unsuccessful one. Part of the 'Tanglefoot' comic I'm very slowly cobbling together.

I really do have to apologise for that smile. 'Quiet desperation' is a remarkably hard emotion to capture.

I understand what you mean. I see a great deal of fright. The expression isn't quiet, it's very hopeful, and desperate, with a good bit of the weight leveraging on the doubt that they're good enough to make it worthwhile in truth

Wish I owned a robe that fantastic! Your characters always have these fun little details that add a lot like the scar on his lips and that fish bowl ring. Love it!
