Abraham Lincoln
Here's a black and gray ink wash drawing. Then I turned it to color in Photoshop. it's a quickie 1 hr drawing. It was a commission for someone.

Lincoln is a beautifully done portrait by ~funrama, based off one of my personal photographic favorites of Mr. Lincoln taken by Alexander Gardner towards the end of the Civil War in 1865. The man behind the smile is simply unforgettable and is recalled with a great affection on the day of his birth. ( Featured by LadyLincoln )

Wow. Ink wash... Meaning, dilute and wash like watercolors? That's fascinating. Excellent composition, you've really captured the notion of his somber character, despite the fact that he's always smiling.

Great job, you seem to have brought out the worried, hard working, mortal part of his personality that caused ol' Abe to be the famous man he was and is. A little bold but effective. :D

This rendition of Lincoln reminds me of Bug-Eyed Earl from the Red Meat comics. That's not to put down your work, which is great. It's just spooky.

And I don't see the need to bash the man, guys. Enjoy the art for what it's worth.
Though I agree that, being the image is obviously pertaining to Lincoln- therefore you have the right to state your opinion- why don't we critique/comment on the art itself, not whether or not we agree with, idolize, hate, love, or otherwise the man the ink has drawn out? :)
Or... We could all just go on about our opinions on Lincoln, whatever. xD <3

Nice work. Maybe better spent on someone who wasn't a lying bigot who has been proven on recorded speeches to say one thing and do an entirely other.
