Here is a portrait of Johnny Depp as "Captain" Jack Sparrow I did. I used a large piece of cardboard I cut from the box my TV came in, wanted to paint and had no canvas, I have recently gotten a roll so I will not be using cardboard anytime soon, however I kind of like the way it turned out. It does not look as good as it does in person due to my camera, and my semi epileptic hands while attempting to take these photos. Never the less! Here's Captain Jack. Also I made the frame and stapled the piece to it in order to keep it straight, the layers of paint were curving the cardboard.
