Just a Friend

A friend of mine posted this pic of himself on his Facebook page, I thought it would make a great portrait and his beard would be a good challenge.

Chanda,

That IS the portrait I drew. LOL....A lot of people say it looks like a photograph. Here is the photograph I drew the picture from.

That is incredible...just incredible. I was looking at it on my phone and on that it looked exactly like a photograph. Now that I am on a real computer I see it but I have to really really look. It's an amazing and wonderful piece of art!

Thanks. This is one of my favorites. I'm also trying out a new set of pencils. I have been using Generals charcoal pencils and I decided to give Prismacolor's line of charcoal pencils a try. So far I'm pretty pleased with them. Down side is they are a little more expensive than Generals and I can only get them online.

I use prismacolor for my colored pencil works and won't use anything else but yes...very, very pricey. They are worth it though.

Wow! Amazing work. You really caught the 'attitude'. My first impression was that it was Billy Gibbons from ZZ-Top (in his early years). Had to take a double take, it still looks a tad like Billy though. But you got talent.
