Tars Tarkas

I was going to sketch a long, lean four armed Tars Tarkas today but ended up doing a headshot. Less than two hours of sleep since Sunday morning, 6am and two very full days and nights of working on a project that I can't talk about or show has worn me out. So, it's a moody headshot. :) If you don't know who Tars is, well, you need to read the Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tars is a Martian and is a loyal friend of John Carter of Earth. The art I am working day and night on is a large one: 3 feet by 5 feet, done in Adobe Illustrator. I have never worked that large in Illustrator and it has been a learning experience.
