I made this little drawing for the contest we had on Pencil Portraits. I have to admit that even if I choose the photo reference, while drawing it I realised that it wasn’t so easy to do. You can go on the contest page and see the other portraits made after this photo by the members. I didn’t participated, but just tried to give some advices. It wasn’t quite a contest, in the real meaning, because the goal was to achieve more knowledge about how to make a portrait, rather than compete.
See here a video made while drawing this portrait :)
UPDATE: the Pencil Portraits ning website does not exist anymore.
