Thanks&Enjoy! *Please Fullview!

This guy was utterly awesome. He was selling the different time period hats.



Edit:
MY FIRST DD! AHHHH! I can't believe it! I'm in shock! Everyone, ThankyouThankyouThankyou!! Helewidis, THANK YOU! :D!

Edit2:
When I made the first 'edit' I was just about to go to sleep and was incredibly overwhelmed over the news of the DD. Now, six hours and some sleep later, I'm still overwhelmed and incredibly gleeful. Thank you so much to Helewidis for featuring it. There is a lot of creative energy and I can't wait to keep it up!

I've always found the shop keepers as interesting as the walking actors at ren fairs :D This guy looks like one of the ones who you could chat with for quite a while, and he definitely looks like someone from the time period. Well, more so than quite a few of the shopkeepers at the Maryland Ren Fair did last Semptember :lmao:

Hm... Ok, so it's forbidden to use the expression as an utterly-cool type of reference? :?
TO say, if I have been enlightened about a few creatures with beards, weird hats and really awesome expressions? :}

Hm... I was actually intending to do a mega realistical portrait depicting the answer to the Universal question(cunningly hidden in a "42" tattoo around his left ear), then pack it, and feed it to a whale... or a white shark, which will then be abducted by aliens who will develop a great civilization because of the drawing. Or because of the shark...
But since you say that the doodle should be showed... What can I do? :P

Bah. Now you know what kind of brain damage can be achieved with 3 cups of coffee around 2:30 AM. ^^ Greets, and thank you for the wonderful portrait again. ^^
