After messing around with this for about 3 months, I believe this portrait is finally finished. I chose Nietzsche as a subject for several reasons: 1.) I recently have read several of his books, 2.)I have yet to see anyone paint a portrait of him in a pose other than the few photos of him that are in existence, 3.) that moustache of his is badass, and 4.) agree with him or not, the man changed the way the world thought merely by writing the three words you see above. An influential character, no matter what your beliefs may be.
