fantastic work! I've just about finished reading the book and it's a real trip (so to speak) I like the way you've used so many different colours to build up the texture and contours of his face :)

the bats are a nice touch too!

As your attorney I advise you to drive at top speed ;)

this is gorgeous
the shadows across his face make it very intense, emphasizing his paranoia
and you managed to keep his eyes clear and full of expression from behind his shades, amazing

"What was I doing here? What was the meaning of this trip? Was I just roaming around in a drug frenzy of some kind? Or had I really come out here to Las Vegas to work on a story? Who are these people, these faces? Where do they come from? They look like caricatures of used car dealers from Dallas, and sweet Jesus, there were a hell of a lot of them at 4:30 on a Sunday morning, still humping the American dream, that vision of the big winner somehow emerging from the last minute pre-dawn chaos of a stale Vegas casino."

He's got a very redish pink face. Other than that, mint work man!

'Hm! Bats!' :omfg:
Awesome painting. The background with the bats is totally fitting, and the Duke himself is rich of details! The glasses look great and it even has the small extra filter for his cigarette... and not to forget the half crazed, half smashed look in his eyes! Brilliant! =D
