Oh wow, this just pops right out at me! It's like I'm looking at a giant clay model.

hehe, a friend of mine always thought Daniel Craig looked like Joe Camel and you can really see it here. :P

Awesome rendering, wow.

Thank you all.


Josh - My favourite description of him is "suave monkey"

Ha, now that you said monkey I can totally see that too.

This illustration is really awesome, but strangely my favourite part is how your signature on it doubles as Bond addressing M, probably before saying something cheeky.

I never said anything but I think this is really, really great…I’ve always felt that some caricature stuff can be freaky, and maybe too freaky, but this has a very nice balance to it...is a really nice one...the eyes are great!

Nice likeness!
This always sparks an argument with friends my parent's age but Daniel Craig is the the best Bond ever! :D

Thanks, everyone.

Michael Firman - I never thought of that, but I like the idea.

Michael J Dowswell - I know what you mean. There are caricaturists who seem to want to just impress with how far they can push the features, but it becomes repulsive to the general viewer.

Sanaril - I have to disagree. Connery's the best Bond.

Great!
Your style got some of that 40s feel to it, I think that picture can hang on a wall at a Art Deco building. Very clean and good lines. I like it! :D

Thanks.

A lot of my artistic heroes are from the Golden Age of illustration, so that might explain the 40s feel.
