I know him from the club.
He bounces at a club I go to every Saturday and helps to run a bookstore that I frequent.
I was very happy that he agreed to do this. I've been hoping to craft this project to feature every age, every race, every body type... Everything. I want to capture everyone. And with Scott I felt I was finally reaching out and helping to achieve what I set out to do.
In the end I feel that his paint job ended up feeling slightly sinister at the end. There is something strange and savage in his expression that I find amusing.
Overall, I was quite happy with the way everything came together. I do feel he had a much more literally earthy look to him, especially considering he seems to have more of literal interpretation on him. I find the hands look like they've just burst from a mossy grove with flecks of gold clinging to him.
There was a definite tension when painting Scott that makes this picture very hard to talk about. It wasn't a bad thing but it was certainly an interesting new experience. That being said I love and enjoy Scott and would like to paint him again sometime.
