Keep drawing. I'm having a lot of fun  on it at the moment.
And Keanu Reeves again, he inspires me, his face is so changeable.
while drawing he always appear different to me.

During the drawings process.
the Face becomes slowly a character.
When I was don with the last one what I present on this Reel  and and the cover  I thought if I had drawn him with a white scarf ( I think the name is Ghutra ) on his head could have played Laurence of Arabia.
Maybe some of you remember this wonderful old movie with Peter O'Toole and Omar Sharif. 
Maybe I'll draw him also in such a version, we'll see...

Lawrence of Arabia is a 1962 British epic historical drama film based on the life of T. E. Lawrence and his 1926 book Seven Pillars of Wisdom. It was directed by David Lean and produced by Sam Spiegel, through his British company Horizon Pictures and distributed by Columbia Pictures. The film stars Peter O'Toole as Lawrence with Alec Guinness playing Prince Faisal.

Thomas Edward Lawrence CB DSO (16 August 1888 – 19 May 1935) was a British archaeologist, army officer, diplomat, and writer who became renowned for his role in the Arab Revolt (1916–1918) and the Sinai and Palestine Campaign (1915–1918) against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War. The breadth and variety of his activities and associations, and his ability to describe them vividly in writing, earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, a title used for the 1962 film based on his wartime activities.
