And another doodle.
It’s funny how rare I draw super heroes even though comics have been so important to me all my life.

John Greenwood (process)

To celebrate George Washington’s birthday, Here’s a process post for a portrait of his favorite dentist.

Thomer thought a process post for my portrait of John Greenwood would be interesting.
Here goes. Greenwood was one of George Washington’s denture makers. He considered himself a dentist, but so did Paul Revere.
Aside from being raised by a dentist, and having his siblings join the trade, he didn’t have any formal training. He actually kind of avoided being a dentist but fell in to it anyway, became famous and was hired by the First President.
All I could find for reference was a silhouette drawing.
But I wanted him looking straight on, so I had to figure it out. (above)

I tried to make him younger and more eager, he was only 29 when he made GW’s first set of dentures. Also I looked at a bunch of random Greenwoods on Facebook hoping there would be a visible family link. (Found several with exactly the right nose)
I was trying to be an Angelatron.
Trust me, I am sparing you a lot of crap and just showing the one sketch that took me where I wanted:

The moment we are all terrified of, imagine being under the drill when folks didn’t need a degree, or novocaine… or soap.
Though, not anatomically correct (your jaws don’t do that) the dentures(at least the bottom one) are correct. These are the first dentures Greenwood made for the president, it includes one tooth still rooted in Washington’s head. The tool is pointing to it.. kind of. That tool is authentic too, I believe Greenwood had a patent for this device (pedal powered).

That’s the final drawing. John Greenwood, one of the greatest tinkerers ever and the most famous dentist in american history.
