Just a quick post.
I’ve always been interested in human origins. So much so, I seriously gave thought to becoming an Anthropologist before becoming a graphic designer. Around the time I was a kid, some really ornate reconstructions were being made in clay. I guess that appealed to my artistic side.
Anyways, I threw this guy together over two evenings. I forgot how quickly I can put together a portrait in pencil.
I’ll apologize now to any working or aspiring Anthropologists who may come across this post. This work is mainly fictionalized and probably not as accurate as it could be. Maybe he’s a hybrid that science likes to theorize about from time to time. Especially now, as there is some good evidence a small percentage of Europeans may have a few Neanderthal genes in their DNA.
