Roger Waters final

I finally got a good scan of my finished Roger caricature illustration. It took two tries at the piece is coated with a layer of shiny aging varnish which makes it difficult to scan (sometimes there's a glare).
While it was a bit of a fun piece to do, I find that it lacks the "oomph" that my acrylic pieces tend to have. I feel that there is a huge disparity between my watercolor/mixed media works and my acrylic technique. I've been focusing almost exclusively on acrylics in my portfolio class as I tend get a much better reaction from people that view that work. It has something that my watercolors don't, so I'm leaning towards working in acrylics for my professional portfolio. Watercolors are quite fun on occasion, though.
