Started this MANY years ago.  The original is oil pastel on cold press illustration board.  Over the years, it got a severe scratch through it.  SO, I scanned it.  Printed it on bristol paper and added color with prismacolor pencils and prisma markers.  The oil pastels just didn't grab the way that I wanted.  I haven't worked in these media in a very long time.  I just have been meaning to get it finished.  Figured Mother's day and my brother dying was the push that I needed.  IF I had started it today, I would have developed his body more.  Maybe researched more..  maybe had models so that I could see body better.  BUT, it is what it is !!  AND what it is .. is finished !!!
