Walt Disney Tribute

This is my tribute piece to Walt Disney and man that I really admired when I was a kid growing up. I'm sure every artist has had some influence by Mr. Disney. He was a shrewd business man and a real dreamer. The hardest thing to paint was Mickey, he's always been the hardest cartoon character for me to draw.

Beautiful Portrait. I particularly like how you painted his hair. It is an area that I struggle with continuously.

Wow, Steve, I would say this is dead on. I love how you handled his hair and Mickey turned out well...he is the older version right? I love the little shadow of his hand on Walt's ear, but I kind of threw me for a minute...It might be a little too dark or something...That is really searching for something though because this is a stunning piece. Again, unbelieavable hair.

Anybody can draw Mickey the way 'they' want you to draw him...what makes it interesting is to draw it your way! That's what I like seeing. I like your take on him - ruffly shorts and more of the old timey look to him.

Nice stuff!
