Robert Shaw

As per a request made on my illustration Facebook page , this week's "Tough Guy" portrait is Robert Shaw, who had a lifetime full of great performances, but of course is known mostly as Quint from Jaws, one of the most unforgettable movie characters of all time.

I considered doing the portrait of Shaw as Quint, but decided I wanted a slightly more universal representation of the man. You still have that one wide eye on display here, hinting at the flinty madness Shaw had on display in so many of his greatest roles.
