sometimes less is more

This guy wouldve made a great bodybuard. He was about 6ft 6 inches and wide as barn door. No fat solid muscle. To top it off he had these thick dark eyebrows and that combed back 1950's "greaser" hair. I didnt want him to catch me drawing him so I VERY quickly did this gesture of him (outlining in blue first) and was more satisfied with this stylized rendering than I would've been with a detailed drawing. Sometimes less is more. It's all in the line and attitude. Hirshfeld would have loved this sketch, and after all he is my caricature inspiration.
