Tony Van Gogh-y by VATalbot Tony Van Gogh-y by VATalbot
My husband Tony doesn't normally have whiskers, so I was surprised to see they grew in so red. That combined with his Indian Jones hat made his look so much like Van Gogh's self-portrait that I was inspired to paint this.

Painted on a Nintendo DSi using the Art Academy program.

Way cool!!! I had to really read your comments... I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and they had Van Gogh in an episode this last season... he was played by an actor named Tony. :giggle:

Thanks.
I watched that episode of Dr Who as well. It was one of the better ones this season. It had a bit to do with the inspiration behind my drawing as well.

Thanks. At first I wasn't going to colour it in. I didn't think I could pull it off. But doing it in that style actually made it pretty easy to do.
