IF ...shecret

Perhaps the funniest secret was that Sean Connery really didn't like the role of James Bond, and was reluctant to take the part from the start; Ian Fleming, who created the character, didn't think the Scottish actor was at all appropriate for the job ~~calling him an overgrown stuntman.
Now most Bond fans see him as the quintessential James Bond.
...interestingly, he only appeared in a total of 007 Bond films.

  5. Haha wow, you really got that look in his eye. So great how you changed the eyebrows. Though - who is that guy in the first sketch? Did you start over or work from that? Love the blues. So cool!

  8. Such a wonderful face, Richard! Love those eyebrows! Your background wash keeps me circling and enjoying it's subtle color shifts ... and discovering one of Bond's secret ladies. Truly excellent!
