Pinhead, like Pablo (see 2-20-06) is one of my regular subjects, a little late in making his first appearance in my journal. Shown here in a formal portrait, it's clear how this acupuncture model got his nickname. The Hobbitt bought him for me when I was trying to learn how to draw. I needed a model so that I could study the effect of light and shadow on the human head.

Pinhead is one of my favorite subjects and has appeared in a number of variations of this first picture. Here you can see his stoic nature, both as a subject and as someone who doesn't know where the next pin is coming from.

This picture was taken with my first digital camera, which had only two megapixels, which sounds quite small by today's standards. But, as you can see, it was more than enough to produce this picture, sharp and with beautiful modeling of light and shade.
