Buster Keaton: Sex Face

A watercolor, kind of realistic Buster thing-a-ma-jig. First of three studies in a transformation into......you'll see!!!


This is not a scan, it is a photograph, so it looks a little weird.

Update! A little something for us girls- Buster in his undies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ooo... he looks here a bit like one of those old phrenology drawings showing which head bumps resemble then turn into which animals. But I won't guess, I don't want to spoil it.

The photographed-ness gives it a vignetted effect... I think... photographic idiosyncrasies can have their own atmosphere.

You don't see expressions like this much any more.

That is an excellent Buster. That should be hanging on the wall in every museum (as well as a few living rooms).

Hey that looks just like him! Even Hirschfeld has trouble with Buster.
You got his cranium exactly!

who knew Buster was so sexy, but then again, I'm only a dumb man. Excellent choices made on this piece.

And of course his face is lovely, too.
Nice portrait Kali!

Yikes, Kali, that is so good. Holy crap. You amaze me more with each post.

Lester Hunt said...

As you might expect with someone who did his own stunts, Buster was in great shape.

I await your next Buster picture with bated breath!

Mitch K said...

Yup, that frog of mine totally has a butt-chin. It inflates to attract mates, too.

You're a good painter! I can't paint like that. Keep 'er goin'! More paint please! =)

You are all so nice! I wanted to respond to you all...so I did! I have time to do such things now that my shackles are loose:

"You don't see expressions like this much any more."

That's for sure!

"That should be hanging on the wall..."

Ok! How much?

"Even Hirschfeld has trouble with Buster."

You certainly have no trouble!

"I'm only a dumb man"

I forgive you.

"don't take long"

I kept that in mind, I hope you know!

"he's got such a nice body"

Incredibly athletic.....SIGH!!!! It doesn't even matter he's way shorter. Buster and Cagney get a free pass.

"Yikes, Kali, that is so good. Holy crap. You amaze me more with each post."

Which Max are you? Not Ward, right?

"I await your next Buster picture with bated breath!"

IT'S COMING!

"More paint please!"

OK!

"nice!"

Thanks!
