“In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.”
Cicero 45 BC, translation by H. Rackham 1914
holy crap, this is awesome! the beard and the hair are hilarious. the brush technique used on them is definitely something to be envied. This guy would make me laugh (or judging by his facial expression, run in fear) everytime i'd see him. Plan to do any animation with this guy? Also, the cowboy piece posted above is amazing. is that a photo of a painting or all digital?
