Respect the Dom
I can't believe I haven't posted this drawing here!
I drew this graphite portrait of Ruth Buzzy and the late Dom DeLuise shortly after his death. I have always enjoyed watching him and have a great deal of respect for him. I hope you enjoy it. I know I do. I love looking at it. I wanted to create a more serious portrait of him, because although he is a comedy legend, his dramatic acting was powerful as well. It was between this image and one from a great little film he did called "Fatso", one of my favorites of his. Funny, sweet and sad.
