Illustration Friday: Help

OK, my connection to this week's Illustration Friday theme is tenuous at best, but here's how I rationalized it:

This weeks theme was help. If I were ever in some sort of hostage situation, who would I hope to come rescue me? Jack Bauer from 24, that's who. That man's a bad mutha f-word. He would infiltrate the location, save the hostages (including myself), and find out who was behind the attack-- all in less than an hour. That would be a great big help. Therefore, "help" = "Jack Bauer".

The truth of the matter is I started watching season five of 24 on DVD last night and I felt like drawing my man Jack. Here be it:

I fully realize that this drawing looks absolutely nothing like Kiefer Sutherland. Luckily, I'm still in that stage as an artist where I'm just happy it resembles a human being.

P.S. For the record, I think Jack Bauer could totally kick James Bond's ass. (Although, in fairness to Daniel Craig, I haven't seen Casino Royale yet. I hear it's really good.)

P.P.S. Please know that I am aware that Jack Bauer is a fictional character. He doesn't talk to me through my TV or anything. Or does he? Maybe it's in code...

Illustration Friday: Mask

This week's Illustration Friday topic was mask.

This was my first real attempt at "cut & grad" coloring in Photoshop. I really need to take some drawing lessons. Can anybody recommend any good drawing/anatomy books?
