What a sweet portrait, in the orientalist manner that was so popular in the 19th century. I would love to see a revival of, not just oriental, but of cosplay portrait themes. Not Manga or comics, but anything from SteamPunk to Renaissance costumes.
Hey, I'd be willing to do some portrait drawings of some of you, if you come up with a really cool cosplay idea. Let me think of how to set something like that up out here in CyberSpace. Ideas?

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
