Richard Dawkins by bronze-dragonrider Richard Dawkins by bronze-dragonrider
I've been wanting to do a portrait of Richard Dawkins for a long time. Along with Carl Sagan, Dawkins has opened my eyes so much and helped me understand so much more deeply the meaning of evolution and science. He is truly one of my most admired persons.

I worked about 6 hours on this in two sittings. I had an almost disastrous moment when a remote control fell on it and left a dent, but when the pencil went over it and got blended, it fortuitously turned into a "mole" which looks rather natural to me, but which he doesn't actually have :doh:

you've utterly missed the red-textured blotchiness which is a most noticeable feature of his face & whilst heroic idealization is all very well there's a decided lack of that brimstone turdy-shitty grin with which he beguiles all those knickerless twats, many of whom are listed below ...

PS I always wanted to be a pretty trollop [giggle me]
