Steve Irwin
 
And many hours later, it's finally finished!  The first pastel portrait I've done in a while.

I grew up watching this man and his family.  His love for the world and the creatures in it are still a huge inspiration for millions.  His death was probably the first celebrity death in my lifetime to hit close to home.
