gentleman skunk


He may not be the best smelling guy in the woods, but he certainly makes up for it with his charm.

Oh my goodness gracious...he is CHARMING, Michael! Love all of the fine details you've added, from the textures of his fine tweed to the shine on his cool shoes. My favorite is his hair..so perfectly combed...awesome! : )

Kelly Medina said...

Oh he definitely makes up for it in charm. Love the flowers and all the texture details.

Skunks have a bad reputation for being rather smelly, but I think this guy is working extra hard to squash that stereotype. He's a damn fine looking skunk and any female creature of the woods would be lucky to have him.

The colours, textures and details are all there to make this yet another wonderful Michael Robertson piece. I love it...as usual.

Dapper little guy...hope those flowers are fragrant ! Beautiful low key use of pattern... that shirt is so much more effective than plain, and the flash of colour from the flowers gives the perfect balance with the background. Masterly as ever... signed a fan :)
