Because of the Kansas City tophat, you see. That’s why “better.”

See Charlie’s quite exceptional original here.

  1. Funny, I thought of a hat when I saw Charlie’s sketch too…although I was thinking more of a bowler. But a top hat suits him well. Where’s the cane? (K)

  2. Haha! LOVE this Kirk!! Sooooo much better! He’s complete now with his fabulous new KC top hat!! And I think Cynthia (Sand Salt Moon) named him Mack if I recall so that name really fits now!! 👍🏻😃😃

    • Of course, not really better. A KC top hat does not instantly make everything better (or does it?). I really just wanted to see how you seem to add shades of color to suggest shadow. I did not succeed as well as you, but I learned a few things I hope to carry with me.

      • I don’t know…it’s a tough one…a KC top hat just might make anything better! Hehe And that’s awesome! Glad you tried this…I think you succeeded really well!
