My hat's off to you for drawing Schwarzenegger accurately and awesomely- you really nailed that macho action hero charisma a lot of people saw on the silver screen during the '80s-'90s, from the sly smirk, to the huge muscles, the spiked-up short hair, and right down to the lit chomped cigar- kudos!

You caught the lights and shadows of skin tone very nicely, and I like how the outline of the shirt stands out from the rest of Arnold- the mix of colors work well against the color of the paper, too. I also like how you signed this piece.
What do you think?

His dude is a treasure. He's one person who I just find it fucking impossible to hate or dislike.

Thanks, but ... Sad? Well, life isn't fair - ya know? So, in saying that much -- I can be sad that I don't get the recognition in this world for my talents/skills and perserverance, ... And on this site that goes without saying, cuz I am not a famous artist doing work that everybody is into currently :twocents:

Well do you sell your portraits? Me personally I wouldn't want to give someone something that took so much hard work and time but....anyways I hope you will be recognized so I can say "Oh yeah, I talked to Victor Powell before he was famous."

Approximately 17 hours over a three day period (at night) in 1990 after a long day at work as a Medical illustrator,... So, factoring the time difference of 22years later and tons of experience - today it would take me exactly 11.3 hours :nod:
