WSC 24/09/2011 – Dad

A second submission for the Outcast Weekly Challenge, and I am really really happy how this turned out.

I drew this picture of my Dad (also called Bill) using as reference an unplanned photo I took of him back in 2005

He was struggling with his health but was still trying to be independent. I guess it is that determination that all of us kids have inherited (to a lesser or greater extent) – to just keep soldiering on no matter what shit life throws at you. Most of us also inherited his volatile temper ;) although like him we have mellowed with age.
Done in Sai, an hour or so this morning before heading out to a comic fair and then finished off this evening. Maybe 3 hours in total as I wanted to really capture him.
