The Nose that Knows by Doc-Hammer The Nose that Knows by Doc-Hammer
That's the picture I used on the back of my brochure from my Oct. gallery show.

I like to think of my nose as a keel. As my face moves through space, it is my nose that steadies it. Were it not for my nose, my face would upend.

It's how they used to choose leaders in Rome, based on the strength of the nose

Finally! A nose that is ALMOST as big as mine. Although mine is crooked (and skewed, too), so I still best ya! :dummy:

P.S. You have +1 watcher. :love:

I love the lighting of this picture...i love how there's a bit of shadow upon the painting..almost like a reflection.. :) very nice

You are quite beautiful.......great shot!!
DanaksZoul Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010
I'm a fan of noses. No one likes an upended face.

Well, that's probably not true, but I'm sure it doesn't bear thinking about...

I wish I had half of your talent instead of all your crazy. Do you have any idea how exhausting is it being you?
albinoescort Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2010
Once I started reading the comments Morrissey's "Will Never Marry" started playing in my mind. To the point where I just finally put it on.
Something in the lyrics remind me of you. Yes, yes you are Gorgeous. I should just break down entirely and be the sycophant I apparently am.
Nothing to be gained necessarily. Not seeking to gain either.... I don't know what it is. I actually wrote this morning that I believed you don't like to smile only to moments later read it here. Well, one thing we have in common is that we both have a perfect Nose. Mine with more femininity than yours.
Mostly German as well. I also have uneven Breast... very pale and light pink colour in the nipples. Just in case you wanted to knows.
"For whether you stay. Or you stray. An inbuilt guilt catches up with you ..."- Will Never Marry

I'm pretty sure your nose is my nose's doppleganger. Well...maybe if mine went on a diet for a while...
Mokeyfrog Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2009
I realy like your art. Its different from what I do. I cant work with oils. If I could i know that my cat would get into it.
Oh and your nose is wondeful people liked Ringo... I dont meen that in a bad way. Plus it can come in handy for somethings.

Oh, hon, you look to sickly thin! :<
Too bad you can't just come down and have some pasta with me and my family....
I guess this is what happens when you breed Italians and southern hospitality together...
Other than the general sad/sallow/thinness, you have a very lovely face! ^^

The beautiful, sensitive, talented, interesting and intelligent are always snatched up by the most undeserving people.

I just hope his other half deserves the brilliance she gets to walk arm in arm with.

*sigh... from a dangerously average person*

I thought that this photo was a painting.
lilyaddict01 Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2009
From the title I thought you were finally going to reveal that your nose had a tiny brain in it. You'll have to tell us SOMEDAY!
UniqueEntity Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2009
You're a very handsome...maybe even 'beautiful'; man.

I love your work, I think you resemble Julian Sands in this photo.

I like the bone sttructure of your face, seems to be rough and delicate at once. beautiful expression, I love your...sideboards form? I really don't know how to say it..nice ID!

Wow! An awesome artist, who actually responds to people's comments, and has a great sense of humor! I volunteer you for the first human to be cloned. The world needs more of you. XD
VesperMariePapillon Featured By Owner May 9, 2009
A multi-talented, intelligent, humorous gentleman WITH fashion sense? Those don't exist anymore. I smell a shooped photograph.
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner May 10, 2009
Ya got me! I made that in photoshop. The nose was once a baby's elbow! The rest came from picture of Draco Malfoy.
VesperMariePapillon Featured By Owner May 10, 2009
Then, good sir, I guess it would be MY "nose that knows",eh?
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner May 14, 2009
I think that was your eyes that knew. Wait, that's not even a rhyme. Ummm: "The eyes that advise"? Naaa. Well come on. They all can't be good.
VesperMariePapillon Featured By Owner May 14, 2009
I think it would be, "The eyes that expose the lies". I think if we were playing chess, this would be the point where I would tap off one of your pieces and go, "Checkmate". Yet I've only learned to play once and forgot since then. So I guess I can just say, "Pwned".

That works, right?
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner May 14, 2009
No, this would be the point where I tell you that it's not "mate, but simply "check," being my rhyme is a direct reworking of "the _____that ____" and yours is an entirely new form of phrasing. Then, if it were that we were playing chess, I think I'd pick up the knight and say "I'm a little horsey!" and prance the piece around the board.
VesperMariePapillon Featured By Owner May 15, 2009
Aww, you totally just took my thunder. And I think we'd end up playing War or something with our kings, queens, and horsey men. We're creative people, right? We can make up something fun.
HiddenTreasures Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2009
My apologies if I come off as incredibly creepy, but I personally think you're gorgeous. You have an incredible profile, and your hair is brilliant.
On top of that, your artwork is stunning.

If I may say so, you look rather pensive and brooding in this photograph...
and rather handsome I might add, with a rather fantastic nose :)
blueaorta Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2008
It's a lovely nose. Mine is somewhat smaller and quite freckled, which may be the reason for my often-faulty steering.
bowie-lover Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2008
that is one fantastic nose!

I click on your shots because they are beautiful, but I stay for the witty comments. I swear I could sit here all day and read, but my boss would probably be calling my house looking for me soon. Anyways- nice shot and smile every once in a great while. The Batman nemisis look will be in soon. I'm telling you, the Joker is gonna make being bad look sooooo good in the Dark Knight.
p.s.~ still listening to Weep through my computer speakers. Please help a girl out here so I can enjoy it on full surround sound. No Pressure! ;-)
Doc-Hammer Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2008
The deal with Weep is actually really simple: I will make a CD when I have enough songs to make a CD. I have just enough to play out with at this point. So... I smell live shows before I get a CD out.
Lady-Au-Pair Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
simple is good. I'll continue to listen and wait patiently for a live show to roll around (in NYC I hope) thanks for the speedy reply and don't forget to take a breather once in a while.... that was NOT a nose joke. i was just trying to say.... ugh, nevermind. ;-)
SockWeasle Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2008
You look very contemplative. I'm digging the hair style too. Your comments about your nose make me feel better about mine.
