That is really lovely Dan!

Mitch Gerads said...

McDaid for the win!

Awesome iconic piece, Dan!

It's alright, but it's no Dec Shalvey's. IRELND, IRELAND! TOGETHER STANDING TALL! SHOULDER, SHOULDER! WE'LL ANSWER IRELAND'S CALL! etc.

Mark said...

Yes, I've been drinking.

Nathan Fairbairn said...

Sweet! And thanks for being the first to post a headshot! Next week: 15 HEADSHOTS!:D

Mr. Hawthorne said...

Dan! Both versions are awesome! God, Iove the elongated mask and grey washes.

Well done!

ACE! I almost took this close-up approach, too. A fun study of the most bad-ass helmet ever.

Declan Shalvey said...

Yeah, it's a great helmet. Fantastic design.

This is definitely my favourite one Dan! Yes, i've also been drinking, but i'd say the same sober. (Love the coloued version too)

Declan Shalvey said...

Wait.... sorry... Toms is my favourite... but yours is a close second!

Dan McDaid said...

Bloody hell, it's all pissheads on here tonight! :)

Thanks for the kind words, chaps. The elongated mask, alas, was an error. Am I the only one who loses perspective when they work large?

Mr. Hawthorne said...

If it turns out good, then take the credit for it. Looks cool :)

Evan "Doc" Shaner said...

I've loved all the different takes on the helmet this week, but yours is most likely my favorite Danny.

That piece is a breath of fresh Kirby! Awesome!
