Rendered in watercolor and watercolor pencils. First time I've used watercolor since school, and then I think it was only once or twice, so they didn't turn out too bad.

This is really awesome, and quite realistic- I could tell who all of them were without reading the signatures (although the title might have helped me there). I also, and this is a bit alarming, could recognize all the portraits you based the pictures off of, 'cause I'm a gigantic history nerd. Although I have to say I didn't recognize Clemens there...

You couldn't recognize Mark Twain? That face and mustache!

Thanks

The Clemens photo was one I was unfamiliar with. I found it more interesting than some of the regular portraits we're used to seeing.
