Default Jim Morrison - a drawing

I've made a start on this...a blank page is daunting!



I've done the main outline and have begun shading his right arm but forgot to take photos. I'm having a bit of trouble as my source photo, printed from the internet, hasn't the greatest resolution and because I'm doubling the size for the drawing, I need more detail. I'll have to go digging for a better one.

Good luck Greg - and yeah, the best possible source image will always help a better finished illustration.
