Chief Joseph

Created using a black bic pen.

Chief Joseph (March 3, 1840 – September 21, 1904) was the chief of the Wal-lam-wat-kain (Wallowa) band of Nez Perce during General Oliver O. Howard's attempt to forcibly remove his band and the other "non-treaty" Nez Perce to a reservation in Idaho. For his principled resistance to the removal, he became renowned as a humanitarian and peacemaker.

I love the shading on his face. I find it very difficult to get the line work right for a person's face without it looking too harsh. Looks great how you have done it.
