This is a really nice portrait, although I'm not familiar with what he looks like in real life. The only thing I noticed is that the pupils aren't centered.

Needs more contrast on his face. Other than that, looks good

I had 2 Google "Peter Brock". Wanted a ref. Never saw his pic. I must say b4 i saw a pic of him, I thought it was an excellent drawing. After I saw a pic Im Floored. This is an incredible rendering of ur Hero. Great job!

thankyou girlbear ,that means alot ,i have it hanging on my wall and my 5 yr old nephew walked in and said oh you drew peter brock,saying i was happy to have a 5 yr old recognise it ,is an understatement ,i was also shocked that he even knew him lol,he casually said oh ive seen him on TV it was amazing...the referenc pic i used was when he was in his 40,s so its a fairly old picture probably 20 yrs old
