This says a lot with so little. Very amazing. Vibrant Colors and great composition. I also like frame within the frame thing.

Jez. That is one cryptic look on salesmen. That dude looks insane. But really the detail is nice and the dude looks just creepy enough to get a stare but just sane enough to get the sale.

Reminds me of a slightly more together Stinky Cheese Man type art project. It's so very awesome. You know that, don't you? :)

His eyes almost look cheeky but sympathetic. Like everything about this: the layout, the colours, the 'lived-in' feeling of it all, the way his shoulders slant off on a different angle to the red boxout, the scruffy shaded style of his hair...

Thats incredibly coooool... I love the teeth of course, as they look kind of threatening. As it should be, for the smile of a salesman is a predatory one. He's looking to sink his fangs into your wallet. The eyes offer a warmer expression, kind of making him appear cute, and I love the mangy black strands of hair. Rock!

really well done. :hug:
