My own selfmade ZZ-Top Painting

Dear 'fellow ZZ-Top fans',

I want to share my love for ZZ Top with the rest of you. I am a 25 year old dutch portrait artist from the netherlands and translated my love for ZZ top in a painting of our beloved Billy Gibbons.
It's a personally completely handmade oilpainting. I hope u will enjoy my painting. there is no commercial pun intended here.
I'v been to a few ZZ Top concerts in my life and whenever they tour in the Netherlands and/or Belgium me and my mother (one of the few who loves ZZ Top as much as i do) are there. I hope Billy Dusty and Frank will rock on for many years.

I would love to get some comments on my painting. Could i catch Billy's mojo or not? please let me know what you like about it or what i can do better... I am a bit of a perfectionist so all comments are welcome!

if you want to seem ore paintings - u can always check my website. There are a few musicians i also adore as well, like Joe Bonamassa, Keith Richards and Willy Deville.

All the best to all fellow zz-top fans!!!

    Agree with Jankku, this is really cool , great job and talent, how long did it take to paint this?
    Are you willing to sell it? Or paint one for me?

    I will come to Germany or the Netherlands to pick it up in person..

    Right now the Tres Hombres are posted as far as Germany in July.
    Thanks and best regards,
    Jason
