Detective

One of my favorite movie characters is Ace Ventura Pet Detective, so Illustration Friday's prompt of detective was a great excuse to do an "Ace" illustration.

  24. Gee, you know I used to dislike Jim Carey with a vengence... but now I am warming to him after seeing your work. Lots of movement this one, and a lot of fun. It;s good how it's 'linked' with the last illustration as well.

    And I'd say the 'eyes' have it!

    see you :)
